Db2 for z/OS fundamentals course

This course presents a detailed description of the Db2 system on z/OS: what it is, what it is intended for, and how it can be used. Rather than just giving a description of the system, the course will also deal with how it relates to other RDBMS, and topics like the Db2 catalog, performance, authorisations, and integrity.

In addition, the course teaches how the system is used in practice. At the end of the course the participants will not only have the necessary theoretical knowledge of Db2 as an RDBMS, they will also have had sufficient practical training to start working with Db2 in an independent way.

Together with the course SQL and relational databases fundamentals, this course forms a well-balanced whole, in such a manner that the participants have a 'complete overview' of Db2 as RDBMS after having followed this course.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Analysts, programmers, and database administrators who will be using Db2; and anybody wanting to gain a thorough knowledge of a relational database system. You can test for yourself to see if this course contains enough new information for you by filling out the on-line self-testthe on-line self-test.


The participants must have insight in relational database systems and they must be able to write SQL select statements. This means, knowledge on the level of the course SQL and relational databases fundamentals, courses who precede this course. You can test for yourself to see if you have enough background by filling out the online self-test.

Bon cours de manière générale. Un peu plus de pratique pourrait rendre le cours encore plus attractif. (, )
Goede cursus: heel leerrijk en goed qua niveau. Wel iets te kort om te kunnen stilstaan bij de BETEKENIS van alles achter wat er gecodeerd wordt en de compile- en runfiles, voor een leek als mezelf. (, )
enorm positief (, )
Le cours est complet, un bon equilibre entre théorie et pratique ! (, )
J'ai trouvé le cours désorganisé et les notes d'un niveau nettement inférieur à celui des notes de la partie cobol. (, )
Prima, en duidelijke uitleg (, )
Voldoende mogelijkheid om met de stof te oefenen. Verhouding theorie/praktijk is prettig. (, )
goede basis voor DB2 (, )
Tres bonne appreciation générale (, )
Goeie uitleg door lesgever. (, )
