Your Google-Fu seems weak.


Now, I suppose what you really want to do is skip all of this free training and just install zOS and poke around until you've figured out everything on your own.

You're right in that it's really difficult to access an actual mainframe to gather proper, practical, experience before getting a job.

But, here is a big thing for you to consider:

Employers who NEED mainframes KNOW their talent pool is retiring, and they SERIOUSLY want replacements.

If your resume were structured to highlight your focused efforts to prepare yourself for a mainframe job, I'm fairly confident it would be a significant boost for your employment chances.
