Today I launched a Certification Checklist on My Developerworks that you can use to track your progress on following the steps required to earn a certification: Getting Started Guide to DB2 Certification. You can use most of the steps in this checklist to track your progress for any IBM software certification, but many of the steps are specific to DB2. I would like to expand the list in the future, but started with the basics.
Please note that you'll need to be logged into My Developerworks in order to access and use the template.
What is a checklist template?
A Checklist template allows you to create a copy of the steps that must
be take to achieve a specific goal (in this case to earn a
certification). By creating a copy of the checklist, you are able to
check off the tasks as you complete them (or if they are not applicable
to you) so you can keep track of your progress. You can set specific
deadlines for completing each step and use My Developerworks to keep
you on top of the schedule.
This is the first checklist that I've created, so I'm sure there are
areas for improvement. If you have suggestions for how I can improve
this checklist, I'll be happy to hear from you.
Frances Pastuszenski was my mentor for creating this template and I encourage you to follow her checklist for "Getting Started with My DeveloperWorks" and to read her blog entry about her checklist.
