DB2 DBA Certification path and course online.

Hi DBAs, I am Oracle DBA and new to DB2 environment. Somehow I am working on DB2 stuff and doing the basic stuff like installtion / Backup /Recovery / Logging and DBA's daily day-to-day work. Working on 11.1 LUW.

Please share me the details to do the DB2 DBA Certification path and some good course / tutorial stuff.

 

Thanks

Hi Mohinder,

IBM has a good certification program at https://www.ibm.com/certify/certs.html

IBM Certified Database Associate - DB2 11.1 Fundamentals for LUW:
https://www.ibm.com/certify/cert?id=08003506

IBM Certified Database Administrator - DB2 11.1 for Linux UNIX and Windows:
https://www.ibm.com/certify/cert?id=08002109

You'll need to research online training. IBM does run some DBA courses online.

IBM training info: https://www-03.ibm.com/services/learning/ites.wss/zz-en?pageType=journey_description&journeyId=DB2002&tag=o-itns-01-01

In the past, IBMs in-class training was excellent. However, I've done a couple of their short courses online which weren't any better than reading the documentation. YMMV.

Amazon does have a certification guide, there may be others around as well:

https://www.amazon.com/IBM-11-1-Certification-Guide-administration/dp/1788626915

If there's an IDUG conference in your region, that may well be worth attending after you have learned the basics, but you'll need to check the agenda to see if the topics are relevant to you: https://www.idug.org/page/events

Hopefully some others can chip in with tutorial suggestions, but you should be able to find some online with a bit of searching.

 

Cheers

Greg
