CCSS OpenVMS Training Environment
CCSS - Computer Consulting System Services
strives to provide clear and understandable OpenVMS training
designed to get you quickly up to speed and productive on
your OpenVMS system. We realize that you may be taking one
or more of these web based courses from the privacy of your
home, or from another location other than in front of your
OpenVMS system. To help you get the most benefit from these
courses, we have provided a suitable OpenVMS training environment
for your use. While it is possible to take these courses without
direct access to an OpenVMS system, we feel you will achieve
maximum benefit by working through the material and performing
the exercises on a 'live' OpenVMS system.
All of our courses are complete. We
provide the course material, documentation, access to the
computer resource as well as tutoring and testing. Each page
of a course has acces to these facilities, although it is

have details on how to connect to our OpenVMS computers.

to an OpenVMS system immediately.

The objective of all of our courses
is to provide very focused and relevant instruction designed
to make you productive at your assigned OpenVMS task(s) in
the quickest and most painless way possible. Individual topics
are presented in small bite-size pieces with examples and
exercises that lead you on the most direct path from topic
introduction to topic mastery. We strive to provide the highest
return value on your educational investment.
Depending on the course you take, you
may have need, or find it convenient,to have several browser
windows open at the same time. We have taken pains to ensure
that you have maximum flexibility in arranging your desktop.
All of the HTML windows we open on your system are resizable
and have scrollbars where appropriate.
Our HTML layout is kept as simple and
straight-forward as possible. You will find no unnecessary
or distracting frills. Graphics are kept to a minimum and
employed only where deemed necessary to illustrate a point
or to make clear an example.
We hope you find our material and methods
effective and useful. Comments, suggestions and ideas are
always welcome and can be sent to our Director of Training:
