AS24G - System Operator Workshop for IBM i

Course Eligible for IBM Digital Badge

This introductory course enables a new system operator to develop basic to intermediate level skills needed for day-to-day operations of IBM i. Focus is given to using the GUI (IBM i Access Client Solutions and IBM Navigator for i) as well as 5250 emulation sessions to perform tasks including job control, monitoring, sending messages, managing systems devices, and more. Hands-on exercises reinforce the lecture topics and prepare the student to successfully operate IBM i.
