The IBM Administration test was just updated to V7 A new IBM Administrator test was created that is for graduates or very recent graduates to show they learned what was needed in school to step into a shop and be productive. Many of the tech schools in the upper Midwest are using it already. I don't think there is enough distinction between and operator and a junior administrator to actually have a operations test anymore. If there is a need for an Operations test, COMMON now has the infrastructure and SME talent pool to create it. The new Virtualization Technical Support for IBM i (000-121) test is advanced enough that if you pass it, you know your stuff on IBM i (same for AIX for those that take that version) None of those are aimed at business partners, although truthfully you should strongly consider if you want to let a partner mess with your box that did not have those certs...

happening with operations? It looked like they were getting out of the
certification business entirely, except for business partners.
