COBOL, Just In Time! Course
Why it's right
a graduate told ComputerWorld, "The 21 Day
book will get you up to speed much quicker than
college classes. It teaches you what you need to
know in the workplace."
Colleen was a sales clerk studying COBOL in night
class. After completing the home study course, she
moved into a full time programming position.
an Inside Technology Training article, Rick
Prouser, Director of IS at Oregon Mutual
Insurance says he bought three packages for his
training class and is planning to buy more.
"The students are able to be technically
proficient for our Year 2000 projects in a short
amount of time. That's definitely worth a couple
of hundred dollars."

a "ComputerWorld" article on COBOL training,
Sheldon Glasser, a 35 year COBOL veteran and president of
the consulting firm R. Dunn Associates, recommends that
graduates of the course be used on maintenance work to
free up experienced programmers to work on more complex problems. "The smart thing to do," he
says "is to hire a bunch of younger or older
programmers, teach them COBOL and have them do some of the
for all levels of students....
Just in Time! is a simple easy to do course, written for
the novice programmer. It is also suitable for COBOL

Just in Time!" is not an academic course. It
is a working course created by a working programmer and
tested on people who have had no prior exposure to
programming. One of the great things about the course is
that it can be done using a PC - at the students home, or
off the main computer resources. It can be done at the
students own speed and at whatever schedule suits him. And
it is written so that it can be done without a teacher.
