midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx If I understand it correctly COMMON
now manages the RPG exams, so they are alive and well. 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...
