Licensing and Experience Courseware for Teaching Quality Control

The z/OS Mainframe Operations and Systems Programming training program is a modular industry standard curriculum: concepts and operations, installation and security, and tailoring and web enablement. The client selects the courses which comprise each module. The duration of the entire program is 19 weeks = 95 days; inclusive of on the job training. The most common program duration has been 30 days = 6 weeks, 40 days = 8 weeks, and 60 days = 12 weeks. A lesson plan based upon the standards of the New York State Department of Education will be provided as part of qualifying the subject matter, examples, exercises, and program duration. Educational consultancy topics, inclusive of project specifications also can be incorporated into the program.

SYS-ED's training programs utilize the full complement of delivery medium: distance-learning, web-based, and technology driven classrooms. As part of conducting a training program, subject matter is organized for utilization in courseware as a learning center. In order to accommodate employee workloads and staff in remote geographic locations, component courses can be scheduled over non-consecutive weeks utilizing a combination of classroom training and distance-learning. At the client's discretion, checklist of completed tasks, validation assessment, and a final examination can be utilized.

The training program can be augmented with modules from 1- programming language training programs 2- system software training programs 3- fast-track specialized courses.

This z/OS Mainframe Operations and Systems Programming training program provides a framework for evaluating course modules: duration and subject matter. The assumption is that the client will incorporate and substitute subject matter and course modules.
