CMDBID: 59243 | Course Code: VME,COBOL | Duration: 5 Days
Delegates will learn to use all aspects of the COBOL language, along with the required SCL and Data Dictionary usage to input, compile, test and debug programs in a VME Environment.
This course is for applications developers required to write, maintain or support VME COBOL applications. It is also suitable for staff requiring a COBOL refresher course, or those who are unfamiliar with the VME system.
This is an intensive course where delegates should be computer professionals with an aptitude for programming. Experience with another programming language would be beneficial but not essential. Delegates who are very new to IT should consider the more comprehensive, leisurely paced COBOL for VME superNOVA.
