Follow-On Courses

AIX System Administration Part II


The course assumes knowledge of the AIX Operating System to the level covered in the AIX Basics Course. Some shell programming experience may also prove advantageous; this can be gained on the AIX Shell Programming Course.


The AIX System Administration - Part I course in conjunction with either the AIX System Administration - Part II course or the AIX Jumpstart for UNIX/Linux Professionals course covers the major topics for the IBM Certified Associate System Administrator - AIX 7.1 exam.

Following attendance on the relevant courses, delegates will need to dedicate time for self study and researching the topics covered on the course. They will also need to gain hands-on experience so they can put into practice what they have learnt on the courses.

Attending courses alone will not guarantee exam success, previous experience, practice, self study and aptitude are also key requirements.

Before taking any exam, delegates should ensure they have the recommended experience by checking the vendor website for current exam requirements and pre-assessment questionnaires.

Exams are not included as part of the course nor in the course fee.
