This Competency Exam was designed as a mastery test for the Fundamentals of Operations Using Navigator for i series. We recommend that you take the exam after you complete the series. Alternatively, you can take the corresponding portion of the exam when you complete each course.
Another use for the Competency Exam is as a pretest. Depending on your previous experience and training, you may feel that you already know the material covered by a given course. If this is the case, you should take the exam corresponding to that course. If you successfully complete the exam, you can skip the course, confident that you have already mastered the skills it teaches.
The exam automatically evaluates your performance and reports how you did. To "pass" the exam, you must successfully work at least 80% of the exercises corresponding to each topic. If you score less than 80%, you will be directed to the appropriate course for review.
The Fundamentals of Operations Using Navigator for i series, including this exam, should be taken by the person responsible for the operation of an IBM i system. This person may be a dedicated operator, a system administrator, or a designated user.
The first two courses and their exams are also recommended for programmers and users who submit and monitor the execution of their own batch jobs and/or who control the printing of their output.
This course assumes that you have a basic knowledge of IBM i facilities. You can satisfy this prerequisite by successfully completing the Introduction to the IBM i Environment series.
