I have been assigned a program for work called PDMWorks Enterprise that uses SQL 2005 for the metadata. Do you have any good resources on how to learn SQL 2005?
Places in Detroit or online that offer training? Any free training would be useful but the company is willing to pay for training.

For a good series of freebie tutorials
SSQL Tutorials

A specific subject matter tutorial (SQL Server Management Studio)
Try this amongst many others
SSMS

If your company is willing to pay try this for a list of MS books

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

I am part owner in End to End Training, in Orlando, but good training. We do have a custom mentoring course if you want it.

Are you looking to admin or develop stuff? Two different training scenarios. I'd recommend picking up a book on the side you want to learn and work through it. That will help somewhat.

Personally, I have found that one of the best ways to learn T-SQL is by reading through the posts on this site. :)
I come on here every morning, read the questions asked, and try to solve the problem.
Then I look to see if anyone else had a better solution.

Do you have a suggestion for a place to buy the DVD/CD training video?

check out appdev.com. That's where I got my CDs when I started to learn SQL Server 7.

The SQL Server 2000 DVDs are only 500 bucks. And that set will give you everything you need to learn including admin and t-sql. With this, you learn at your own pace. But you need to be dedicated in learning it.

The 2005 version is still a bit pricey. But if your company is paying for it, it will be worth their investment.

Also, I recommend this book: "The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL" Its by by Ken Henderson. Its nice to read on your commute home.
