"Red Hat, the leader in open source Internet infrastructure solutions, announced today that it has partnered with e-learning pioneer DigitalThink to deliver Red Hat's leading Red Hat Linux training and certification over the Web. Under the agreement, Red Hat will collaborate with DigitalThink to develop a suite of e-learning offerings that will prepare individuals anywhere in the world to take the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam. The RHCE program has distinguished itself as the certification choice of corporate IT organizations and individual professionals."

"The Red Hat E-Learning Curriculum will provide a complete Web-delivered training program covering the same skills and objectives as the instructor-led classroom track, as well as prerequisites and e-learning on Internet and open source technologies. Red Hat is among the first to offer e-learning that is completely coordinated with instructor-led training and with a skills path toward a major certification, affording customers unparalleled flexibility in deciding how to obtain training towards the RHCE Exam. The RHCE Exam is a performance-based certification exam that tests actual competency in managing Linux servers for enterprise roles."

"As Red Hat continues to build out the open source Internet infrastructure, it makes sense to work with DigitalThink, a leader in e-learning solutions, to help us deliver the innovation, skills and technologies of the Red Hat training curriculum through redhat.com," said Matthew Szulik, president and CEO of Red Hat. "Through redhat.com, we can have a one-to-many relationship with those wishing to deploy open source solutions for their Internet architecture."
