z/OS and DB2 Training


Very good introduction course, is very useful for my job and, through the course, discussed the next level with the trainer and realised that another course then the one I have chosen should be my next course. Guidance is excellent and I will be back for the second course I require in my job, and that course is the suggestion of the trainer. Excellent job!
