New Linux courses

We are proud to present our partnership with Guru Labs for Linux Training.

The founders of Guru Labs, Bryan Croft and Dax Kelson, are experts in their fields. They had successfully deployed Linux in many environments from the early 1990s. Bryan and Dax recognized the limitless possibilities of Linux and open source contribution. With the rising exposure and popularity of Linux, a large number of potential users and existing users were seeking in-depth, specialized training.

These Linux courses will be GARUNTEED TO RUN and offered multiple times throughout the year.  Each course is currently supported on the latest releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with additional support for Fedora Core Linux and SUSE Linux Professional.

Let’s take a look at a few of these classes:
