Job Role Description / Target Audience
An IBM DB2 Academic Associate is a member of the academic community (faculty member OR a student in a degree program) who has completed a course that covers the IBM DB2 Academic Associate CE302A course material (including all of the hands-on labs) and passed an IBM exam on the course contents.
An IBM DB2 Academic Associate is knowledgeable in fundamental concepts of RDBMS, basic administration of DB2 9.7 and understands the minimal requirements involved in the development of applications for DB2.
The holder of this title also demonstrates that the theoretical gap between traditional database courses at college level and real hands-on experience with the DB2 data server has been closed.
Individuals who successfully attain this title should have enough knowledge to start building application that utilizes the DB2 database, and perform basic database administration tasks.
The IBM DB2 Academic Associate Exam is offered through two IBM programs. It is offered at no charge for approved classes through the IBM CAS testing system. An equivalent exam is also offered as a DB2 Academic Certification for a fee through the IBM Certification testing system using PRIME.
Most universities make use of the no-charge testing that is available through the IBM CAS testing system. Testing using the PRIME testing system can be used when students wish to try a second time to pass the exam or when it is critical that the student results be collected with other IBM Professional Certification information.
Instructions for preparing for both exams are identical and are available on the IBM DB2 Academic Associate Program website (ibm.com/db2academic). When the IBM proctor (a requirement for both types of testing) requests the testing codes, they need to request them in the appropriate testing system. Faculty members providing this course for their students must be a member of the no-charge IBM Academic Initiative program (ibm.com/academicinitiative)
