- PRESS RELEASE
The course covers the objectives outlined by CompTIA for its Linux+ exam and certification, an international industry credential that offers proof of knowledge in key Linux areas, from networking configuration to directories to the Linux desktop and more.
"Novell is committed to promoting Linux at the high school and college levels," said Dan Veitkus, vice president, Novell Training Services, as Novell yesterday launched a new introductory Linux training course designed for academic environments, "Getting Started with Linux: Novell's Guide to CompTIA's Linux+", that gives educational institutions what he hopes will be a powerful new tool to promote open source training and providing students a new option for learning Linux.
"The new course's combination of expertise from a leading Linux vendor and focus on a vendor-neutral examination will provide a solid launching pad for interested students," said Gordon Ratcliff, GM Novell Middle East. "Interest in Linux is exploding among IT students, and Linux will soon become the de facto standard on which the students will be trained. Novell's new course is a great addition to the curriculum, as it helps students to learn the basics of Linux, and also pass a critical CompTIA exam that really strengthens their resume. Novell's contribution of software is also a great boost for schools who face constant budget challenges when trying to introduce new technologies."
"CompTIA is a leader in globally-recognized vendor-neutral certification programs," said Neill Hopkins, vice president of skills development for CompTIA. "The fact that Novell has developed training that maps to a CompTIA exam, rather than their own flavor of Linux, is a strong testament to Novell's commitment to the open source movement. This is a great opportunity for students to learn Linux from one of the leaders in the field."
