Education

We Make Learning Easy.

illustro has a full set of education courses to make it Easy for you to learn the skills you need to keep current. Our instructors have been in front of thousands of customers over the last decade bringing a full-range of topics and skills to classrooms and seminars all over the world.

illustro's classes always feature actual hands-on lab exercises at every class to make sure you immediately practice what you've just heard. With this approach, our students leave our classes with practical experience and return back to their installation ready to put their skills to use.

In keeping with our commitment to innovation, we announced a new class in 2009 titled "Connecting VSE to Other Platforms", class A3760. This class offers hands-on skills to learn what it takes to connect the VSE/ESA and z/VSE platforms with the multitude of other platforms. This includes using the VSE Connectors for Java exploitation, and XML and Web Services facilities.

In 2010 we developed a new class in demand for some of the personnel changes taking place around the world with new (and sometimes younger!) staff learning the trade of the mainframe. "VSE Systems Operations", class A3714 teaches the ins and outs of operating a z/VSE system to train new operators. Graduates of this class are fully ready to assume operator responsbilitiy immediately.

Additionally, we continue to create custom-classes to be taught on-site for organizations who are also training new systems support staff, including systems programmers for z/VM and z/VSE. We custom build an agenda based on your individual needs, drawing from our existing classes including VSE Systems OperationsVSE Under the CoversTCP/IP Under the CoversCICS TS for z/VSE and VM for Systems Programmers.  This is a very cost effective way to mentor a new staff member with systems support responsibilities transferring knowledge from illustro team members who have decades of VSE and VM support experience. Just let us know what you need.

There are many ways to find an illustro education course to fit your schedule and budget.

And if that doesn't suit your needs, we also arrange private classes for organizations all around the world. This works well for customers who need to have multiple people from their organization attend the courses, but want to reduce travel costs and time out of the office. We'll bring the knowledge to you.
