    > Fundamentals Badge: learn about data sets and how to use VS Code. Get introduced to coding languages such as JCL, Python, and USS through hands-on challenges.
  2. >Concepts Badge: Get increased knowledge on security, uptime and enterprise scalability. Take a deeper look into subsystems, Db2 and RACF.
  3. >Advanced Badge: Further your hands on learning around REXX, COBOL, Linux, VSAM, JCL, Python, Db2 and more.
  4. What is the Concepts Badge?                                                                                               
  5. The concepts badge earner has
    learned and displayed both
    fundamental IBM Z skills and                                                                                   
    understands IBM Z concepts. This
    individual is able to perform
    everyday tasks in an IBM Z
    environment, including
    administering data sets, formulating
    commands, managing JCL, scripting
    actions in USS (Unix System
    Services), writing and debugging
    Python, and orchestrating actions

    Utilities.                                                                                                       
  6. What is the Advanced Badge?
  7. The advance badge earner can solve
    advanced IBM Z problems by
    thinking critically and applying
    information from a wide variety of                                                     
    sources. They have orchestrated
    system activities using Ansible and
    Zowe, while working in Docker
    containerized environments. The
    earner has also demonstrated key
    IBM Z skills, including REXX,
    COBOL, VSAM, and TSO.                                       
  8. What we have done in the session?
  9. We have solved the problems people face in the badges by applying our knowledge and skills used in fundamentals and advanced badge as concepts badge is based on theoretical views. Each badge takes up-to 12 hours depending on their area of difficulties and pros.
  10. > Earning the concepts and advanced badge as a professional is important because it shows that you are capable of learning new Z skills.
  11. > It shows that your knowledge in JCL, USS, Python and REXX.
  12. > At career fairs/events you can showcase your Z skills to potential recruiters.
