Informix 11.70 Certification Test now available

IBM released a new certification test for Informix 11.70 (Panther).

There are about 63 questions which much be answered in 90 minutes. So the average time for each test question will be about 85 seconds. This is quite tough but fortunatly you'll get the Informix 11.70 certification with a relatively moderate passing score of 60%. The previous Informix 11 certification required a passing score of 70% !

New IDS Certification Test


Good news for all Informix newcomers:

You can now become an IBM Certified Database Associate. IBM has released a new certification test (Exam 555 - IBM IDS 11.50 Fundamentals) that is more directed to people new to Informix or people who are not working every day as an Informix DBA. The new certification is also a good preparation for people planning to take the already existing advanced certification called IBM Certified Database Administrator IDS 11 (Exam 918).
