Why Learn DB2 ?

Better paid jobs and a great career choice !

An average DB2 DBA salary is $72,000 p.a. --(source-indeed dot com)


What are the chances of landing up with a DB2 Job?

High !

Most people go for Oracle, MS SQL and other DBA jobs.

There are a good number of DB2 DBA jobs too (for freshers and exp.), but it's hard to find good DB2 Professionals.

Take the advantage, get hired by Big Companies and get a Better Compensation.

To name a few

Dominos Pizza, Morgan Stanley, PricewaterhouseCoopers(PwC), American Express, Coca Cola, IBM, Deloitte, McDonald's, VISA, Mastech, Conexess Group, Accenture, Kforce, Open Systems Technologies , Walmart , TCS, Infosys, CSC, XEROX, HP, Guardian Life, CapGemini, WIPRO

and many more. (source - indeed dot com and glassdoor dot com)


What's the future of being associated with DB2?

DB2 is high competition to other databases and being IBM's biggest selling software in databases, its here to stay for ages.

With it's Oracle compatibility features in DB2 9.7, it's getting harder for competitors.


Is this course sufficient to get a DB2 DBA Job?

Yes.

This course provides a strong conceptual knowledge (that most interviewers look for) backed by practical learning (that adds to your employment chances).

After completing the course, you will have the knowledge of DB2, equivalent to a 0.5-1.5 Years exp professional.


Will I be able to learn DB2?

Sure !
You just need to have the zeal to learn. I've put in best of my efforts to make this course as simple as i could (from a beginners perspective) , by explaining concepts that should be easy to understand and the step-by-step tutorials (demos) will be really easy to follow.
The course has Quizzes, Exercises and Resources to back you up with your learning.

I am here to share my knowledge and experience on DB2, connect with you guys, participate in the discussion forums, answer questions you ask and make sure you learn DB2 like nobody else can do.

You'll be a pro at DB2 !


What about the Professional IBM DB2 Certification?

A professional DB2 certification ensures that you have been tested on the skills by the giant itself (IBM).

I have trained 12000+ students on DB2 and the certification success ratio has been over 95%.

This course covers all concepts and practicals that will help you clear the certification (if you choose to go for it) with good marks. There is a section dedicated completely towards clearing the DB2 Certification. The sample certification questions will help you in clearing the main DB2 exam.



Any Pre-Requisites?

It's good to have a basic understanding of DBMS concepts and SQL. Although, i've covered these concepts too during the lectures.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course if for those who want to start their careers in the field of Database Administration on IBM DB2
  • Students, who are not comfortable with programming, can choose this course for a highly paid career in the field of databases
  • People looking for careers in Database Development
  • Already experienced DBAs (from other databases), can take up the course to increase their horizon for better paid DBA jobs
