Course Description

COBOL Online Training is designed for software developers who want to master the fundamentals of COBOL. It gives you a solid foundation in the COBOL programming language, from which you can advance your knowledge.

COBOL is short for Common Business Oriented Language. The US Department of Defence established CODASYL (Conference on Data Systems Language) to provide a language for commercial data processing requirements, which later became known as COBOL.

We can't write system software with COBOL because that language is only used to create applications. COBOL is widely used in applications like those in defence, insurance, and other industries that need to process large amounts of data.

COBOL Online Training Overview

Because of the logical control structures, COBOL is simpler to read and alter. Through this online course, you will learn how to compile and run this standard language on devices like the IBM AS/400, personal computers, and other computing platforms.

COBOL is specifically created for business-oriented applications in the fields of finance, defence, etc. You will learn how to use its sophisticated file-handling capabilities to manage large volumes of data.

The course will teach you how to use this robust language for many debugging and testing tools across practically all computer platforms. Using the numerous divisions of COBOL, you will find it easy to debug.


What will you learn in this course:

  • Learn to reach the portability and readability of COBOL.

  • Understand its applications in business, finance, and administrative systems.

  • Learn how to handle massive data processing.

  • Learn how to use COBOL in applications deployed on mainframe computers


What are the prerequisites for this course?

  • No mandatory prerequisites to learn COBOL.

Simply Easy Learning

Tutorials Point originated from the idea that there exists a class of readers who respond better to online content and prefer to learn new skills at their own pace from the comforts of their drawing rooms.

The journey commenced with a single tutorial on HTML in 2006 and elated by the response it generated, we worked our way to adding fresh tutorials to our repository which now proudly flaunts a wealth of tutorials and allied articles on topics ranging from programming languages to web designing to academics and much more.
