Can any one tell me about IBM JCL certification? IBM providing JCL certification or do we need to go for BrainBench?

As fas as i know, IBM does NOT provide certification for JCL. Neither does any training/testing organization provide JCL certification that is recognized bu IBM.

Many places offer "certifications" of all sorts, but mostly they just charge money and their "certification" is not industry standard. . . There are some employers who might concider these non-IBM certifications valid, so i would ask potential employers if this is worth your money.
Have a good one
