Cobol training course (code: IBMCOBOL)


This COBOL training course is designed for programmers who need to code, maintain or debug COBOL programs. It covers the COBOL coding required for typical commercial programming. Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.
