Announcement: SQLMaestros Master Classes are not happening at the moment. We are focusing on Video Courses, Hands-On-Labs, Learning Kits & Electronic Books.


SQLMaestros In-person Master Classes are 40 hours of intensive, advanced, deep-dive, practical training. We have successfully delivered more than a dozen instances of Master Classes across various cities in India, especially Bangalore, Hyderabad, Gurgaon, Mumbai etc. Master Classes are exclusive, on-of-its-kind; therefore, they are conducted only once-in-a-year.

Starting from 2017, Master Classes will be scheduled only in Bangalore. To cater to other cities, and global community, we have introduced online delivery of Master Classes.

Schedule & Class Duration:

In-person Master Class is a 40-hour training program divided into two parts:

  • Instructor-led Delivery: 3 days of classroom training of 8 hours each (total 24 hours). Class timings will be: 9 am to 6 pm with 1 hour of lunch/refreshment breaks.
  • Hands-On-Practice: Attendees will do hands-on-practice at their own convenience using SQLMaestros Hands-On-Labs. Self-paced. On-demand.

To summarize, the instructor delivery portion will be 3 full days (24 hours) and the remaining 16-20 hours should be spent by the participant on hands-on-labs at his/her own convenience.


For each registered participant of the Master Class, SQLMaestros will provide 1-month FREE access to its Hands-on-Labs portal. All master class labs are hosted in the library. Access to Hands-on-Labs portal would give you more than 100+ labs to practice at your own pace & time. Apart from practicing course-specific labs, you will have access to the entire library for a month. You are most welcome to learn & practice beyond the master class. However, since the free access is only for 1 month, trainees are encouraged to practice hands-on-labs exercises within 1 month or before the free subscription ends.

SQLMaestros will provide you online support with hands-on-labs as required. If you get stuck up or need help, our team will assist you so that you have a smooth hands-on experience. Support will be provided through hands-on-labs email & remote desktop support.


SQLMaestros will provide you setup guides/instructions using which you can setup your own environment for hands-on-labs exercises. The setup is very easy. Once you are registered for the class, we will share a setup guide which will contain step-by-step instructions. In case you need help, SQLMaestros can assist you.
