Need Information on DB2 Certification

P: n/a
ssb
Hello,

I would like to have information on the following:

(1) What is the "entry-level" certification for DB2..?

(2) Are certification courses for DB2 for mainframes different from
the ones for non-mainframe systems..? I have an experience in
mainframe based DB2. I am not sure if that works for DB2 UDB as well.

(3) What is the fee for these tests..?

(4) What are the recommended textbooks..?

(5) Are there any sites which offer deals for these textbooks..?

Thanks so much...

This article will provide a lot of information you want. By the way,
mainframe based DB2 has a different architecture with db2 udb on
linux/unix/windows.

Depends what you mean by entry-level?
- End User
- DBA
-- Application Developer
- etc
(2) Are certification courses for DB2 for mainframes different from

The certifications (like the databases) are quite different, especially at
the DBA level. The DML SQL is very similar. The DDL is a bit different. The
admin commands are much different.

(3) What is the fee for these tests..?


$120 each, You need to pass 2 different tests to become a certified DBA.

See the following web site.
