Jim is right. The best way to get experience is to get your hands on a NON production machine, and start to play while you read.

Subject: Re: Hardware Courses for iSeries
There are several classes run by IBM but they tend to be reserved to IBM business partners.
Truthfully most of us get that information from three sources, 1) experience, 2) Networking usually at a COMMON event or IBM event, and 3) reading the announcements and documentation that is published.
A great way to start understanding how all the hardware fits together is to download the System Planning Tool. That will allow you to document the configuration of your own system, and create configurations that
would have valid card placements and combinations of hardware. See :

I have checked the IBM site but there really isn't a true course per-se that deals with the overall hardware - there's courses on the HMC, LPAR, etc., but nothing else at the component level (such as DASD, Main Storage, processor cards, etc.).
