Licensing and Experience Courseware as Learning Center Quality Control

The CICS Transaction Server training program is comprised of concepts, programming, utilities and development tools, application design, and advanced topics. The client selects the component modules and program duration. The standard duration is 4 weeks = 20 days; followed by 15 days = 3 weeks of client-specific IBM system software training: 1- CICS Web Enablement 2- DB2 UDB 3- WebSphere MQ. A lesson plan based upon the standards of the New York State Department of Education will be provided as part of qualifying the subject matter, examples, exercises, and program duration.

  • For new hires with minimal experience in application development on IBM mainframe systems, the training program can be augmented with client-specific programming language subject matter and examples.
  • Industry standard content can be extended to included educational consultancy topics and guidelines which will address project specifications for implementing CICS web enablement.
  • For experienced information technology professionals, the training program can be tailored to present and implement the principles of a SOA: Service Oriented Architecture for repurposing applications and platform migration in a IBM or hybrid computing environment.
  • A program can include system software used in application and platform migration: 1- CICS Transaction Server to an IBM web server platform. 2- Tuxedo on an Oracle web server platform.

SYS-ED's training programs utilize the full complement of delivery medium: distance-learning, web-based, and technology driven classrooms. As part of conducting a training program, subject matter is organized for utilization in courseware as a learning center. In order to accommodate employee workloads and staff in remote geographic locations, component courses can be scheduled over non-consecutive weeks utilizing a combination of classroom training and distance-learning. At the client's discretion, checklist of completed tasks, validation assessment, and a final examination can be utilized. A CICS training program can be taught with a programming language other than COBOL: Assembler, PL/1, C++ or Java. The training program can be adjusted to include technology updates and third party mainframe software.

The course modules and duration can be used as a foundation to evaluate an integrated training program or select standalone fast-track courses.
