While I am not familiar with the IBM program, I would wager the answer is probably “yes” and “yes”.  Check job listings to see whether the material you have covered is enough to get you a job doing what you learned.  There may also be remote or part time positions from websites that cater to that crowd.  Having said that, To keep advancing, you will probably have to take the advanced class to get the really “fun” projects.  In my experience, you may have to change jobs once you complete the advanced class if you decide to take a job while pursuing the advanced certificate.  Many employers do not know what to do with people who have grown their skills.
