CRN: Tech Data Offers Linux Training

“Tech Data’s Authorized Linux Education Center will offer
three Caldera courses and prepare customers for Linux Professional
Institute Certification
, according to CW Rogers, vice
president of customer education at Tech Data, based here.”

“The courses include Linux System Administration, which focuses
on the basics of administering a Linux system; Linux Network
Administration, which offers training on advanced Linux networking
including configuring network services and integrating a Linux
system with a heterogeneous environment; and Linux Enterprise
Administration, for installing, managing and maintaining Linux
servers in a network.”

“The courses do not focus only on Caldera, said Jeff
Hunsaker, senior director of channel sales at Caldera. In the
enterprise class, students will install Linux versions from Red Hat
Inc., Research Triangle Park, N.C.; VA Linux Systems Inc.,
Sunnyvale, Calif.; and other companies. ‘We realize that one Linux
distribution is not going to dominate everywhere,’ Hunsaker said.
‘If we made our Linux training neutral, no matter if you use Red
Hat, VA or Caldera, you still need Linux training.’ “
