Last December 22, 2012 i took the IBM DB2 Academic Associate Certification sponsored by Western Institute of Technology Iloilo City.
The IBM DB2 Academic Associate program is exclusively for the university community. The preparation course teaches relational database concepts while also providing students with critical, hands-on database skills on IBM’s DB2 and Data Studio software.
As a professor, it is a must to be updated and of course gain some trainings and certification in order to teach the subject.
A two day training was first conducted on December 20-21, it took me again to review my database concepts and been introduced to IBM DB2 environment. A mock exam was conducted in order to qualify for the online exam on December 22, and luckily i passed the exam, and now have my certificate.
