Mainframe Education

Like many, when I’m not working, my second full-time job is taking care of my fur baby. As a dog owner, I am always on the lookout for the newest and most interesting gadgets to make dog ownership a little less of a hassle. One of the recent gadgets I purchased wasn’t intuitive to use, so I did what I most dread doing: I pulled out the old-fashioned owner’s manual. With black and white smudged ink on what resembled tissue paper, I could hardly make heads or tails out of the instructions. 

How nice would it have been to simply have a URL to visit, with clear videos to help polish my understanding?

My own experience here in searching for easy-to-use training reminded me of how proud I am to work in the Broadcom Mainframe Education department, which provides high-quality training for our customers – whether you’re new to the mainframe, or an experienced mainframe professional.
