Content and Overview  Through this course of over 12 hours of content, you’ll learn about the Mainframes and establish an understanding of the mainframe system.

Starting with an overview of the Mainframes, this course will take you through the types of datasets, Operating systems and data processing used on mainframes.

With these basics mastered, the course will take you through TSO commands, will introduce you to ISPF commands, allocation of datasets and then the different operations you can perform on the datasets.

It will then cover JCL, VSAM, COBOL, and CICS.

Upon completion you will be literate in Mainframe terminology, understand how datasets are created, and how you can use commands to operate on the data in these datasets. You will gain enough knowledge to self learn further Mainframe topics such as CICS.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to start a career in Mainframes but don’t know where to start.
  • IT professionals looking for a switch in their careers.
  • Mainframe Professionals who want to brush up their knowledge about mainframes.
