imPower Technologies

imPower Technologies helps companies hire and train the next generation of IBM i developers. We provide online, self-paced, instructor-led IBM i training for new and seasoned developers. Our courses enable new developers with little to no IBM i experience to become highly competent and seasoned developers to learn new tools for modernization. Courses include videos, sample programs, graded quizzes, weekly meetings and the use of an IBM i partition.

This comprehensive course is designed for entry-level and other platform developers to learn the IBM i. Upon completion, students will be proficient in using the IBM i operating system, Db2 database and IBM’s new development tools. The course includes a mixture of videos, graded quizzes and labs, and weekly online meetings to ensure optimal retention and understanding of the course material. Class duration varies and is based on student activity—maximum of eight weeks.
