    Unanswered: Certification Details

    Hi,

    I am planning to go for DB2 certification. I am a MCP. Interested in doing DB2 certification. Please suggest me what are the papers i should write to get the certification....

    Is there any basic level certification available for DB2. I've already visited the IBM site Since I am totally new to DB2 It is totally confusing for me to select the proper channel.

    First I want to get the basic level certification...


    Please help me!

    Thanks,

    Give a look at
    http://www.ibm.com/certify/certs/db_index.shtml

    You'll find the certifications lister by category. IBM doesn't have an "entry level" for the certification. You choose the certification that applies to your role (user, appl. developer, dba).

    IBM Certified Specialist - DB2 V6.1/V7.1 User certification

    For this I am planning to take the test: 509..

    Hi Sathyaram,


    I am not that much strong in database concepts. that's why I've opted out for 509. You have got lot of experiences in this field. Could you please tell me can I able to complete the paper 512.

    My knowledge in database concepts is 5 out of 10.

    Please guide me

    Thanks,

    Both 509 and 512 are DB2 Fundamentals, the former is V6 and the latter V7 ..

    I don't think 512 is much different from 509 ...

    Cheers

    512!

    No need to take an exam of 509. In a short time, 512 will be replaced since v.8 will be released soon.

    Re: 512!

    azcheng has a valid point ...

    But you can start preparing with the Objectives of 512 and when the new exam for V8 is announced, you'll can check the differences and take up the new exam ...

    Cheers
