Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You would have to do some research on what languages they are teaching and on what platforms. You might also try and contact IBM to see where they send their employees for schooling. Sites like http://www.400school.com/

    Not possible to say. Different schools/universities have various courses to teach AS/400. But it is a common practice to start from a scratch that is beginners learning stage or basics of AS/400. You can check here for more information - IBM: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/We13116a562db_467e_bcd4_882013aec57a/page/Coding%20in%20RPG%20IV%20-%20a%20beginner's%20tutorial

    I have taught in a program that used to do AS/400 based courses. There were 4 potential courses. The 1st was pre-req course for the others. It covered basics of the operating system from a user perspective. We used "Mastering the AS/400" by Jerry Fottral. It has since been updated to "Mastering the IBM i" by Jim Buck.  The other courses were  RPG, COBOL and advanced COBOL.  I never taught COBOL courses, but I did teach the RPG course. Mostly RPG IV and it was pretty basic, mostly report writing, but we did do a little interactive and as I recall a subfile program. Limited exposure to RPG II and RPG III. I wrote a program in RPGII, RPG III and RPG IV  (pretty much pre free format days) that all accomplished the same thing. (For me it was interesting to see the growth of the language). I passed copies of the source out to the students.  There was a 2nd RPG course in the cataloge, but it was never offered.  The program was abanded when the area opportunities for entry level programmers dried up. There are still a some jobs in the area, but they are all for experienced talent.  Most of the places around here have very small Power Systems staff.  It has been 19 years since I was not the only Power Systems staff person.
