Are you using the course as delivered on cd, or the online?

I'm using them now. The operators course seems to be a really good starting
place

WDSC is great, but for an operator?  It's primarily for writing code.  You 
can, and people have, put in extensions for doing stuff like looking at 
spool files, etc, but probably not where to start.  But if your operators 
do bang out a bunch of CL to write backup programs and stuff, it might not 
be a bad thing to put on the "to learn" list - just not at the top.

I've done the ATS courses.  Not bad.  They're geared for the 5250 
interface and not iNav. 

I use both iNav, and 5250, for operations.

InfoCenter is your friend.  Check out

rview.htm#sysmanage

There is stuff in iNav, especially in the Management Central part, that 
you would have to pay extra for to get a green screen version of.  iNav is 
a "freebie" and while it is bundled with iSeries Access, you do not have 
to purchase that product to load iNav.
