Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
The course starts with an overview of structured programming concepts. The four divisions of a COBOL program and their functions are reviewed in detail. Students will gain hands on experience through a series of class discussions and workshop exercises that include several modifications to a skeletal COBOL program. File processing, program looping, conditional program statements, and table processing are covered in detail. Development of clear and understandable program designs is stressed along with building maintainable programs. Program debugging techniques are also discussed.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
The course is for entry level students who must understand, design, code, test, and debug COBOL programs.
Six months experience with TSO/ISPF is required. No previous COBOL experience is needed.
