Test C2170-050: IBM i2 COPLINK Detect V4.x

It is highly recommended that you use a variety of resources to prepare for certification exams. 

It is first recommended that you are familiar with:

  1. the job role description and the parameters this certification is based on.
  2. the test objectives/skills measured on the test. Use this as your checklist to determine your strengths, and identify those areas where you may need to focus more attention in your studies and preparation.

Next, use the recommended training resources on this page to further your knowledge.  The recommended courses are: 9I36G and/or 9S205G.  The courses along with the other educational sources are recommended, but not required before taking a certification test.  Determine for yourself how much preparation you require. 

It is important to note that actual hands-on experience is a critical component in preparing for the exam. Direct application of the skills learned cannot be substituted by any resources listed here. You must spend time using the product and applying the skills learned. The exam is designed to measure hands-on experience, or how well you know how to perform job-related tasks.
