People who are new to the RACF component of the z/OS Security Server, and responsible for security administration. This includes people who are planning to implement RACF for the first time, and people who are security administrators in installations where RACF is already implemented. Those inexperienced z/OS users may find the course Basics of z/OS RACF Administration (ES19/H3917) more appropriate.
Anyone planning to implement the advanced features of RACF should consider attending Implementing RACF Security for CICS (ES84/ES840), and Exploiting the Advanced Features of RACF (ES88/ES885).
