I studied the ICT50515 Diploma of Database Design and Development. The course contents was geared toward what I do everyday at work, and more. As a database and business consultant working full-time, the course materials and contents help to reinforce and improve my skills on how to better design a database system and develop a better scope document, deliverable, project sign-off, project estimation and completion.
In addition, I have also learned to understand the importance of Copyright, Privacy, Ethics, Sustainability for any software developer or contractor or the company itself.
This 100% online delivery course fits perfectly in my situation. As a person from Canada, where in-class attendance is not a possibility at all, the 100% online delivery method allows me to study anytime at night and weekends from thousands of miles away.
My trainer Darrell Klar was extremely supportive and knowledgeable. During the course of my studies, I was faced with a few questions and concerns on two assignments. After communicating with Darrell through email and phone calls, he was able to guide me on the right path and offer me the support and encouragement I needed to successfully complete my assignment. I didn't really need to call student support as most of my questions and concerns were answered by Darrell.
I love the fact that I can do the study 100% online and at my own pace, for this reason I was able to finish this one year diploma program way ahead of time. I have been trying to look for similar diploma programs in Canada but was unable to find any, that's why I study with Upskilled.
I believe there will be many benefits for me and my workplace in the near future, however as I have just completed the course, I can only list few:
- Design a better sql server database system.
- Improvement on project management and data management skills.
- Understand the significance of copyrights, ethics, privacy and sustainability for any workplace environment.
I may be looking at Web Development Diploma or other IT related courses in the future.
I believe I will have the opportunities to put my training into real world practical experience as time goes by.
