Oracle SQL - Grouping the Results of a Join

Introduction

The query in the following code shows the average evaluation ratings for each trainer, over all courses delivered.

It uses the USING clause with the COURSE and BEGINDATE columns.

This USING clause with two columns is needed to get the correct join results.
