Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification SQL 2008 
Course Description

The Microsoft SQL Server 2008 provides Failover clustering and database mirroring technology and enable enterprises to deliver highly reliable, available applications to employees, customers, and partners. SQL 2008 students with learn both theoretical and practical instruction in the areas of an overview to SQL Server, Database Management and the Transact-SQL language, and SQL Server Databases. It will teach students how to work with SQL Server data objects. Students will learn how to create and manage view, stored procedures, user-defined functions, and triggers, and SQL Server indexes, how to plan for index creation, how to create and manage indexes, as well as learn how to optimize query performance and how to analyze queries. This curriculum teaches SQL Server 2008 transactions and locks, and how to import and export data, and how to transform data with DTS. Additionally, users will learn how to manage distributed queries and linked servers, create transactions, manage locks, and how to troubleshoot transactions, locking, XML, HTTP endpoint, Serive Broker, Export, Import, Replication and database backup and restore.
