Get In A Mainframe Of Mind At Upcoming Open House

August 11, 2008 - "Mainframe" is the buzzword for an open house hosted by Collin College's Continuing Education from 10 a.m.-noon, Saturday, Aug. 23.

The Mainframe Computing open house is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Courtyard Center for Professional and Economic Development, 4800 Preston Park Blvd. in Plano.

The open house is a venue to meet instructors, review curriculum, ask questions and find out the best path for someone seeking to re-career, improve his or her skills, or just learn new ones.

Mainframes are everywhere - from credit card use and ATMs to cell phones and computers. Mainframes are used by most Fortune 500 companies, contain 80 percent of the world's mission critical data and process 70 percent of all business transactions.

The mainframe workforce is getting older so the demand for people with mainframe skills will continue to increase. Attend this session and learn about mainframe training classes that are being planned.
