In this two-day course, you will learn the fundamental skills required to design and build databases in Microsoft Access. From the basics such as database terminology, the course will take you through the process of designing and building a database, constructing tables and table relationships, creating queries to search and interrogate your data, and provide you with the skills to create forms to ease data entry, and reports to output your information.

Most job roles today involve some form of data management. In the case of data workers, it may be their primary job task. For some, like research scientists and accountants, data management may be a strong component of the job. For others, data management may consist of an incidental job responsibility, such as time reporting or recording a sale.

A relational database application such as Microsoft Access can help you and your organisation collect and manage large amounts of data. Access is a versatile tool. You can use it as a personal data management tool, or you can use it as a construction set to develop applications for an entire department or organisation.
