e-Learning Courses

Across your organisation, mainframe computing professionals are striving to keep your mainframe systems running at their best, complete critical projects, and help the company exceed business goals. Given the realities of mainframe computing today, when an hour's delay can have a serious business impact, the development and maintenance of critical mainframe skills is essential.

Interskill Learning's e-learning curriculum provides a rich array of content assets and flexible delivery technologies to support the full range of formal and on-demand learning needs of mainframe computing organisations. With instant access to the right resources learning is continually available close to the work, resulting in immediate impact to critical mainframe decisions and projects.

Interactive, Engaging and Effective

Interskill Learning is serious about creating a successful learning experience for your mainframe and midrange IT personnel. Rather than just focusing on the technical aspects of online learning, we try to focus on the learning itself and how technology can be used to facilitate advanced learning outcomes.

Simulation of Mainframe Environments

The experience and familiarity gained serve to not only increase student knowledge and skill level, but boost confidence when working on live systems. In addition to simulations spread throughout our courses, we offer a z/OS console simulator. Students will gain hands on expertise in manual IPL and shutdown procedures, as well as practicing a multitude of other commands.

Ongoing Reference Tools

Course indexing allows students to access their training as an ongoing reference. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, this content is always at their fingertips. Whether as a refresher to a course long since completed or a quick reminder on a technique or concept before an upcoming project, e-learning is no longer just an online class, it is an ongoing learning solution.

Unmatched breadth, depth and currency of courseware

Each of Interskill's 200+ courses can be completed by itself but typically we consider each course one component of a complete training solution. A real strength of this comes when your people have completed multiple courses on multiple facets of their work environment and job competency. It offers the opportunity to build a cross trained, multi-skilled mainframe workforce.
All courses are kept up to current version so even your senior people will benefit by keeping up with the latest releases of your core software.
This training is also invaluable to pre-train your people before you upgrade current software or implement new software.

Testing Throughout

All our mainframe training is designed as structured courseware. Each course teaches basic principles or skills, promotes understanding, and then builds on that strong foundation with further development. Insuring this understanding at each stage is achieved by continual testing throughout all modules.

Testing methods are designed to be the most effective for the content being taught. i.e.

  • Testing on concepts is done with multiple choice, fill the blank and drag and drop questions
  • Testing on applications utilise simulations that replicate real-world scenarios
  • Testing on coding requires students to practice their programming skills
