Linuxcare University Introduces First-Ever Linux Courses for Windows NT Professionals

In a groundbreaking move to facilitate corporate adoption of Linux technology, Linuxcare, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise-class technical support, consulting, education, and product certification for all distributions of Linux, has announced the launch of four new Linux courses. These courses, designed specifically for professionals with experience in Windows NT, mark the first Linux offerings tailored to this demographic (San Francisco, August 6, 1999).

Jim Schweizer, General Manager of Linuxcare University, emphasizes the importance of Linuxcare's extensive expertise in supporting various Linux distributions: "Our unique focus on real-world business environments enables us to teach students how to prevent potential issues before they escalate."

Linuxcare University's new courses include:

  1. Linux for Windows NT Administrators
  2. Installing and Configuring Linux for Windows NT Environments
  3. Linux System Administration for Windows NT Users
  4. Linux Network Administration for Windows NT Professionals

These courses will be accessible in the fall of 1999, joining Linuxcare University's popular offerings such as Linux System Administration, Linux Network Administration, and Linux Security. These courses have already been piloted at Fortune 500 companies like Dell Computer, Inc.

Linuxcare University training is available on-site for enterprise clients and covers vendor-specific features in Caldera, Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, and TurboLinux distributions. Linuxcare trainers recently provided a custom six-day class combining modules from Linux System Administration and Linux Security for Silicon Graphics, Inc., teaching at their facilities worldwide.

To further expand its reach, Linuxcare University has introduced a partner program for corporate IT training providers. Qualified training partners receive courseware, teacher manuals, lab materials, and practice exams. Linuxcare's innovative Train-The-Trainer program offers personalized instruction, technical support from Linuxcare gurus, and access to an exclusive intranet with up-to-date Linux information.
