Software version used in the course: 

  • This course has been built in Access 2019/365 but works on most other versions (2007,2010,2013, 2016)

Access has been around for over two decades and it’s not going anywhere due to its ability to be ‘up and running’ very quickly!

Sure, big companies like big databases that serve the company needs on an enterprise level, but the value of Access is about what can be done at a local level, in small teams and on smaller or temporary projects.

For example, if you are working in a small company and you want to be able to manage your data whether that be some kind of sales data, expenses, marketing information or project focus data and you need to get up and running quickly with a database to handle it well, Access is definitely the tool for you.

You can be up and running in an afternoon with no need to get IT permissions or ask for a big budget! That’s why Access is known as a self-serving or end-user tool.

Given that is how Access is now used, we have built a course with exactly that in mind, to teach you how to use Access for it to be a great end-user tool that you can get up and running quickly but also give your Database more advanced capability if you wish to.

In order to build the right course for you, we worked with Guy Vaccaro, who has been building Databases, including Access Databases for over two decades. Rather than build an unnecessarily long training, Guy has condensed his two decades of mastery in under 6.5 very focused hours, not learning unnecessary functionality so you can get up and running and maintaining your database in a very quick time frame!
