IBM Certified Solution Expert CMOD multiplatform
« on: July 05, 2011, 06:31:54 AM »
Hi

I want to be a certified solution expert for CMOD.
Can someone point to the recommended material for preparation.

I also want to know about the syllabus for this exam.
On IBM website, I couldn't find any certification for CMOD multiplatform.

Thanks
Pankaj.

There really isn't a study guide -- just make sure you review the manuals, and understand the relationships between Storage Sets/AG/App/Folder/Groups, etc.

I'm not sure if the certification exam has been updated for 8.5 yet, so I'd focus on 7.2.1.x and 8.4.x.

After nearly 10 years of working with CMOD, I've finally made the Certification at the beginning of this year (would be a shame to be a CMOD specialist at IBM without Certification, isn't it!!)

So if you understand the official manuals, know ODWEK (not at the deep API level!), know the relationship from CMOD and other IBM products (CM/FileNet/TSM/...).
Know a bit about the Indexer (ACIF, PDF, ...)
How the admin works (cache, migration, Cabinets, Holds, Printer, ...etc...)
the CMOD configuration (ars.ini, ars.cfg, ...)

Well everything in the manual. If you know it, or at least do a refresh...

I think that since you have already knowledge and experience from CMOD, then by reading the whole set of manual for a refresh, you'll have nothing to fear.

Good luck!

I believe it's available worldwide.

If you get the chance to go to the IOD 2011 Conference, you'll have the opportunity to take many certification tests.

To pass the exam you must go to the prometric website:

http://prometric.com/IBM/default.htm

And there you will be able to find your country with all authorized certification center.

(just for your info, if you go to check the certification on the IBM website (http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/27001002.shtml), and look at the right of the web page, you'll see the link to prometric website, with the following text: Register for an IBM Certification test at Prometric and take a step into your future.)

Cheers,
Alessandro

Another precision from what I said for testing before taking the actual test.

Yes it is possible to test your skill before going to the real test:

http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/sam444.shtml

It costs 10 USD to get an evaluation of your knowledge.

Cheers,
Alessandro

I did not receive an actual paper certificate, but I did receive an informational email from IBM about the certification along with a pdf file of the actual certificate.  Not sure if this still happens, my certification was in 2004.

Here are the instructions to request a PDF certificate.

Please follow these instructions to receive your certificate:

Register on the Member Site at www.ibm.com/certify/memberinfo.shtml
Sign the certification agreement
Obtain your certificate: select "Request e-Certificate"

Your pdf certificate will be sent to the email address listed on your IBM profile within 2 business days.  You may also make changes to your
Address Information on the Member Site.

You would need your prometric test ID to register.
Additionally you may also request a paper certificate from the same website.
It costs approximately $6 plus courier charges.

Did you study a lot to pass or?
Many double negative questions?
Are you a native speaker? :)
