Mainframe Education Without the Classroom: Longpela Expertise Launches Unique z/OS Systems Programmer Training
Longpela Expertise launches unique new z/OS Systems Programming mentor package.
Perth, Australia - Apr 30, 2009 - Longpela Expertise, a System z Mainframe
technology company, today announced the launch of their new z/OS Systems Programmer
Moving away from the traditional classroom course, this package provides one-on-one
mentoring with a senior Systems Programmer. Each week, the student and teacher
informally discuss issues and problems directly relating to the student's current
"We're more interested in showing students how to find answers themselves,
rather than simply feeding them information", Lead Systems Programmer David
Stephens said. "We've found that our mentoring approach is a great way
of achieving this."
Teachers structure discussions and assign regular reading and project assignments,
providing students with guidance as they learn to find answers themselves. Teachers
review and discuss completed assignments, and are also available via email to
answer student's questions.
Students undertake training at their desks, and communicate with their teacher
using email, telephone and the internet. This reduces the costs of training,
as well as the disruption to the student's working day.
Training for most z/OS, CICS and IMS Systems Programming topics is available,
including advanced Assembler programming, dump analysis and performance tuning.
Longpela Expertise's teachers are all practicing Systems Programmers with over
18 years experience. They all have formal teaching qualifications and extensive
Longpela Expertise's Systems Programming training is available worldwide.
