Re: advice on training for operators new to iSeries?



fixed

I have some portable classrooms from  ATS.
They come with audio tapes which you listen to while looking at step by step educational presentations, and there are exercises you can do via a special ATS sign-on. The 400 footprint is very small. In theory each new person entering some job function can take the same class, review the materials, managers can also use.

In my reality, the work place is beset with interruptions, so I need to be doing this at home, telecommuting. There's a question about whether we have the right audio tape player, then if multiple co-workers encouraged to borrow, take home, some of the contents go missing.

List,

We are new to the iSeries world. We will be migrating from a VSE/ESA system
to i5. We've already migrated our database from DB2/VSE to UDB/iSeries. So
far - so good.

I would like to get some advice concerning the best way to train operators.

1) What is the best application to train operators to use that are new to
the iSeries?
iSeries Navigator?
WDSC?
traditional green-screen via TN5250?
All the above?

2) Are there any recommended classes for operators that are new to the
iSeries?

3) Is it better/more economical to bring someone in for the training?

4) Any other ideas or suggestions we should be aware of as we move forward
with the migration?
