Learning Plans

Mainframe Learning Plans are a key component of Interskill’s industry leading mainframe workforce training resource.

A Mainframe Learning Plan provides mainframe professionals with a graphical, defined plan of learning activity that lays the foundations for technical competence in their IBM Z job role. These “training road maps” guide and motivate personnel to undergo structured, targeted training and achieve significant skill and knowledge gains over the course of the training program. 

The array of mainframe job-role specific Mainframe Learning Plans provide the mainframe organization with out of the box structure, enabling a sophisticated mainframe workforce training program with a minimum of setup. The structure keeps learners focused on learning the skills most important to their jobs, maximizing their available training time and delivering maximum ROI for the organization.
