"Sair Linux and GNU...the nation's leader in Linux and GNU certification, has entered into an agreement with global publisher John Wiley & Sons, Inc. to provide Sair's corporate training materials to training centers and educational institutions worldwide. John Wiley & Sons contracted with Sair in May 1999 to publish the Sair Linux & GNU study guides which will be available through traditional and online retail booksellers beginning in December 1999."

"The partnership will utilize Wiley's international sales force to make Sair Linux & GNU Certification (SLGC) -- a comprehensive, three-level training and testing program for information technology (IT) professionals -- accessible to corporate training centers, corporations and public sector facilities both in the U.S. and abroad."

"Linux is the fastest-growing open-source operating system in the world, and Wiley is one of the world's top computer book publishers," noted Dr. P. Tobin Maginnis, president and founder of the Oxford, Miss.-based Sair, Inc. and a leading expert on open-source software. "With this partnership, we can assure that Linux Certification maintains its integrity and value while reaching the broadest possible market."
