You should have an understanding of the objects (tables, indexes, databases, and so forth) used in DB2 systems, and of how those objects are created, managed, and recovered.
These skills can be developed by taking the DB2 Database Administration Workshop (CF83) / DB2 9 for z/OS Database Administration Workshop Part 1 (CV830) or through equivalent experience. You should also have a working knowledge of SQL. The DB2 SQL Workshop (CF12) / SQL Workshop - Instructor Led Online (3E120) provides that.
In addition, you should have:
- At least one year as a z/OS systems programmer or equivalent experience
- Or, one year working with DB2 on the mainframe as a DBA on the mainframe or equivalent experience
