Course Title Duration Description
IBM i Fundamentals Series
IBM i Fundamentals 5 The IBM i Fundamentals course explains the origins of the IBM i system and describes the configuration of hardware and software needed to support it. It discusses the types of devices that can be used to access the IBM i system and the interfaces most commonly used. Examples are also provided of several products commonly used to perform IBM i administration tasks.
Introduction to IBM i for System Operators 5 The IBM i Fundamentals Series provides learners with an introduction into IBM i from an operations point of view. The courses will familiarize you with the IBM Systems Director Navigator for i, IBM i navigator, and 5250 emulation interfaces and provide examples of some of the tasks that can be performed using them.
Monitoring and Managing IBM i Workloads 5 The Monitoring and Managing IBM i Workloads course provides an overview of the processes involved in monitoring, managing and controlling IBM i workloads and printing.
IBM i System Administration Series
IBM i System Administration Fundamentals 5 This course introduces the learner to the core tasks performed by the IBM i System Administrator, and includes information on system configuration, security, backup, recovery, performance monitoring and capacity planning. The use of third-party and IBM products to achieve these tasks is also discussed. The Management Central software, which is used to monitor and control IBM i system activity and performance is also explained in detail.
IBM i Security Implementation 4 This course focuses on the security-related tasks undertaken by the IBM i System Administrator. As well as discussing how overall security requirements are identified, it also delves deeper to describe how IBM i system security relating to user, system and resource components are created and managed. An overview of IBM i system auditing requirements, implementation and reporting is also provided.
Journal Management 5 This course highlights the importance of IBM i system journaling and describes the type of data that can be captured using this feature. Tasks associated with displaying journal entries, implementing journals, managing journal activity, and recovering data from journals is discussed in detail.
Storage Management 3 This course provides an overview of the levels of disk storage that are available on an IBM i system and how they can be configured for use. Information relating to speed, availability and data recovery features associated with IBM i disk storage are also discussed in detail.
Logical Partitioning and Virtualization 4 This course looks at logical partitioning and the benefits that can be gained from implementing this feature on your IBM i system. Details of the products that can be used to define partitions as well as the process itself is provided, and the management and performance of partitions is also discussed in detail.
IBM i Programming Fundamentals Series
IBM i - CL Programming 8 The CL Programming course introduces programming that uses the iSeries Control Language (CL). It explains how to use the variables utilized in a CL program and control its processing.
IBM i - CL Programming Functions and Messaging 4 The CL Programming Functions and Messaging course describes the more advanced features of Control Language programming. It focuses on how to use CL message handling to monitor the correct execution of CL programs.
IBM i RPG Series
RPG/400 Introduction 6 The RPG/400 Introduction explains the fundamental features and structure of a Report Program Generator (RPG) program. It also describes the concepts of RPG programming.
RPG/400 Coding 4 The RPG/400 Coding course explains the fundamental Report Program Generator (RPG) operation codes that enable programmers to manage field values, perform numeric operations, and manipulate dates for retrieval and viewing.
RPG/400 Programming 4 The RPG/400 Programming course explains how to use Report Program Generator (RPG) features to write reports. It also describes structured programming and how to affect the flow of control.
RPG/400 Workstation Programming 5 The RPG/400 Workstation Programming Introduction course shows how to design and develop screen layouts and how the program can interact with the user to deliver and accept data.
RPG/400 Advanced Workstation Programming 6 The RPG/400 Advanced Workstation Programming course shows how to use the standard IBM i tools to write and compile RPG/400 programs. This course also covers the design and use of dynamic databases in your program.
IBM i Query Series
Database Basics and the Need for Query 4 The Database Basics and the Need for Query course describes the IBM Query for i sort, report and analyze capabilities providing examples on how IBM Query for i is used to create business reports. Basic concepts relating to database structure and the data that can be accessed by IBM Query for i are explained in detail.
Creating a Simple Query 6 The Creating a Simple Query course begins by describing how database files are joined, enabling IBM Query for i to more easily reference data. This is followed by the identification of data that will be required by IBM Query for i and the subsequent coding required to extract that information. Details on options used to save the query and print, or display, the resulting report are also covered.
Advanced Query Features and Management 6 The Advanced Query Features and Management course begins by looking at more complex capabilities associated with query definitions. It then moves into the management of queries, explaining how queries can be copied, modified, deleted, printed and run. The Data File Utility and its purpose are discussed, and finally a number of tips when managing queries are provided.
IBM i Application Programming Introduction Series
DB2 for IBM i - Introduction for Programmers 3 This course is intended for new programmers, with some existing operational knowledge of databases and the workings of the IBM i system, who will be writing programs which access the IBM i database. At the completion of the course the student will have a basic understanding of the IBM i system's data file specifications (DDS) for both Physical and Logical files. This course is not intended to teach the basic operations of IBM i system and its usage.
