  • Course Oracle PL-SQL Programming : Content

    In the course PL-SQL Programming participants learn to program in PL-SQL, the procedural programming language from Oracle. PL-SQL fits in with the query language SQL, but extends the capabilities of SQL and improves performance.

    First the position of PL-SQL amongst the different Oracle tools is discussed. Next attention is paid to the syntax of PL-SQL, the structure of PL SQL programs and statements, declarations and expressions.

    Also control flow in PL-SQL with if else and case statements and the various loop constructs are discussed. Next cursors are discussed and how they are used in accessing the database. Also advanced issues like the creation and calling of local and stored procedures and the use of packages are part of the subject matter.

    Finally, attention is paid to triggers. This course uses the newest Oracle version, but where necessary, Oracle 9i, 10g and 11g features are specifically indicated.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
