“In a matter of 3 months, I went from not knowing what RPG stood for to being able to build full-on ILE RPG programs. Within 2 days after completing the course, I was able to get down to business and begin helping my current employer with building and maintaining company programs.”

Bucking the System, Hold the College

Jim Buck spent 15 years teaching IBM i and RPG at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Buck achieved great things there, finding hundreds of students good jobs around the country. But ultimately the college experience grew old for Buck, so he ventured out on his own. That’s when he founded his own online IBM i educational company, imPower Technologies. Click here to read the interview with Alex Woodie on IT Jungle
