I like that my blog entries this week have all had the theme of certification. Maybe I could do week long themes for blog entries this year….
Anyway, after I posted my Cert 101 blog entry, I was informed by Scott Hayes, host of the DB2 Night Show that Roger Sanders is his guest on next Friday’s show.
An In-Depth Look at DB2 Certification
Insider Secrets and Tips for DB2 LUW and z/OS
with IBM Champion Roger Sanders
Friday, January 20 from 11:00 – 12:00 EST.
If you are interested in getting certified, and I think you should be if you are working with a product as complex as DB2, you should join this show. Roger has been involved in the DB2 certification program for years now. He takes part in the exam development as a subject matter expert. He and the other experts create the questions that appear on the exam.
Roger takes creating questions very seriously since once he’s finished creating questions for the actual exam, he makes up a whole set of sample questions that appear in his books. He gives you the answer to the questions in the book and explains why the correct answer is correct. I think this is a great way to learn the material, don’t you?
Roger also teaches this material in the form of a Crammer Course. Many DB2 conferences throughout the year my feature Roger and his Crammer Course.
