Learn implementation for Information Management System (IMS) using Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) as the external security manager, and the installation provided security exit routines. Apply classroom lectures with security workshop exercises in which you setup the security definitions.

This course is taught in a Web conference medium with live instructor audio, and Internet Web conferenced materials. You have chat type Question and Answer (Q and A) ability, plus live audio. The course is taught 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Central time for eight work days over a two week period. Since the class is taught live using Web conferencing methods, you can attend from your home or work.

Only issue I had is with lab completion. Some labs didn't show up as complete which left me confused. Other than that the material itself is amazing and the hands on experience is extremely useful.

ExitCertified provided the participants with all the required information we needed to join the training one week in advance and ensured that we had all the required materials to make the experience as seamless as possible.

Very informative and helpful. Provided lots of extra resources and explained the process clearly.

I took a 1-day AWS Essential. It was too short and too much materials. It is a good overview and exposure overall. I like the lab materials, and the console worked flawlessly without any issue. Good preparation!!

Great learning center. My first online class experience -- went better than I anticipated.
