You expect service, and we deliver. In the early years of OpenVMS, we were training the OpenVMS engineering group. That speaks to why our techs are among the elite in the industry. Bringing PARSEC OpenVMS services to your business will be a decision you won't regret.

Whether you are running the latest version of OpenVMS on an Integrity server, an older version on an Alpha, or a very old version of VMS on a VAX, we can help. But that's not all.... we know our stuff across most major platforms so you can count on us for much more.

OpenVMS Training

OpenVMS training has been our specialty since 1986, with some of our instructors OpenVMS experience dating back to before Version 1! We have no rival in the number of professional training sessions that we have delivered through the years. Learn more about our training below.

Thank you for doing a great job teaching the class. I have had 17 years experience of Tandem System administration, followed by 10 years of UNIX (primarily AIX) and now VMS... it all makes more sense now. I would recommend your class to anyone.

The key to PARSEC Group's quality training is our instructors; all our courses are delivered by senior level instructors who bring valuable, real-world experience to the classroom, which makes for increased applicability of your newly gained knowledge in your own real life situations. This, along with the written course material, will be valuable assets in the future!

Additional Resources

Here are some helpful links to other resources available for OpenVMS.

IQ Quiz

PARSEC Group created an IQ Quiz for OpenVMS, Tru64 UNIX and AIX to test your knowledge. It's fun and challenging with a number of brain teaser questions and is very popular with the OpenVMS, Tru64 UNIX and AIX communities and is right up there with Wayne's Joke of the Week!

It's simple:

  • An e-mail is sent out 1 or 2 times each week (you choose the frequency) containing a question and up to 5 multiple-choice answers
  • You click on one of the answers to be taken to the PARSEC Group web site
  • This displays the answer you have chosen, the correct answer if yours happens not to be correct, and a brief explanation

Those who have completed 50 or more questions may be eligible to be included in the Hall-of-Fame. For complete details, or to see those who have become members, visit the Hall-of-Fame for OpenVMS, AIX or Tru64 UNIX.

To sign up for the IQ Quiz, or to maintain the frequency, log in to our site. If you have not previously registered, you may do so there. After registering, you will receive an e-mail to confirm the registration.
