Rajesh Goyal writes “ LinuxCertified, Inc., a leading provider of Linux training in Silicon Valley, will offer its next weekend system administration bootcamp on February 2-3, 2002 in New York. This workshop is designed for busy information technology professionals and is designed to cover the most important Linux administration areas. All attendees get a free Linux laptop.In addition to carefully designed lecture material delivered by experienced Linux professionals, there is a heavy emphasis on hands-on learning. The training starts two weeks before the actual class, with access to an online Linux server, where students complete few challenging pre-class activities. Attendees get a powerful Linux laptop on their arrival, along with other class materials. They load Linux on their laptop during the class, and use it for all the class activities and assignments. At the end of the class they take this laptop with them to further enhance their Linux expertise. Absolute beginners with no UNIX experience can first come to the popular “Linux Fundamentals” class and subsequently join the system administration bootcamp.

Rapid growth of Linux into corporate and government IT environments is fueling the need for Linux certified professionals. CIOs and managers are eager to have Linux experts in their organizations. A certification provides a tangible mechanism for their hiring evaluation, as well as a means to market the prowess of organizations.

“As an independent IT consultant I am always on my toes to learn new technologies, without much free time to devote to classes. The LinuxCertified bootcamp was a perfect way for me to jump start my Linux knowledge. I can now use Linux as a valuable tool in my career,” said Taylor Cottam, an independent consultant who joined one of the LinuxCertified, Inc. weekend bootcamps.

This weekend bootcamp is specially designed to prepare the attendees for the objectives of Level 1 certification exams offered by Linux Professional Institute (LPI). The workshop also meets the objectives of the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam and Sair Linux & GNU certification (LCA). Our attendees build a strong sense of community with our instructors, fellow students, and our network of recruiters and companies looking for Linux consultants.
