Hi - I took several IBM Certifications and found a few things recently - here's the wayback machine which describes the exams I was lucky enough to take (for free) and when from an old OS/2 website I used to maintain:

https://web.archive.org/web/20040612073115/http://www.haynes97.freeserve.co.uk/exams.htm

There's some links in there to the sample IBM questions/answers too which don't work but give you the filename you can search for.  For example CERT94.ZIP can be found here:

http://ps-2.kev009.com/pccbbs/misc/

I also found my old New Riders OS/2 exam books that have a million memories for me - they were the ones I used to do my last minute revision with.

You got a mouse mat and a pin badge for passing exams that I have kept for 25 years - again, photos in the link.

Hope this brings back some good memories for someone.

Colin.

Thank you Colin.

You post helped me found some other test and links I was missing on the IBM Courseware Wiki page.

If by any chance do you have any printed material of that courses, please let me know, I can ask IBM permission to republish it.

I don't have any further training materials I'm afraid, but I've found some links for information regarding the exams which I don't believe you have.

Here's a link which gives you details on the Warp 4 Systems Expert detail:

https://web.archive.org/web/20000815084735/http://www.ibm.com/education/certify/certs/o2_index.phtml

Lots more Warp 3 and Warp Server detail on this link:

https://web.archive.org/web/20000815084636/http://www.ibm.com/education/certify/tests/index.phtml

Hope his helps.

Colin.

Hi

I got the scans and permission from IBM to republish the following:
- P1071 - Installing and Supporting OS2 2.1 - 1st Edition
- P1071 - Installing and Supporting OS2 2.1 - April 1994
- P1072 - OS2 2.1 Advanced Supported Workshop Course
- S7049 - Extended Services for OS2 Communication Manager - Student - Lab Notebook

I will be posting it on the next days on Archive.org and the OS2World wiki.

Thanks to all the people that are helping me backstage to get this "IBM Courseware" material to the public.
