BMC Mainframe: RACF for z/OS Systems Programmers

The course is developed and delivered by © RSM Technology.

This advanced three-day course, designed, written, and presented by specialist RACF consultants, specifically focuses on RACF from a Systems Programmer's perspective.

The course provides a uniquely detailed insight into the technical architecture of RACF and RACF's relationship to z/OS. It describes and explains how RACF is implemented, and how it can be customized using standard RACF facilities.

Extensive hands-on practicals accompany the theory sessions, with each student having their own RACF system to customize.
