E-Commerce Times: Red Hat and Global Knowledge Team Up To Offer Linux Certification

“Linux operating system (OS) vendor Red Hat, Inc. this week
announced a partnership with Global Knowledge Network, an
independent IT training company, to advance the open-source cause
through a new exams-based certification program.”

“Registrants from beginning to network professional levels —
who are actively interested in moving to open-source solutions —
will be required to demonstrate performance capabilities in such
areas as diagnostic testing and troubleshooting, installing and
configuring Red Hat Linux, performing essential administration and
setting up common network (IP) services.”

“Industry analysts have predicted that other Linux vendors
will follow suit.
In May, Caldera Systems, Inc. announced
sponsorship and support for the Linux Professional Institute’s
(LPI) exam-based certification program. Caldera, however, is
expected to announce their own program, possibly tapping the
services of Global Knowledge.”
