LinuxCertified.com,  a  leading  provider of Linux training, will
offer its next weekend bootcamp on November 18-19th in San
Francisco  bay  area  (south  bay).  These workshops are
designed for busy information technology professionals and
prepare  them  for Linux Certification exams.

In  addition  to carefully designed lecture material delivered by
experienced Linux professionals, there is  a  heavy  emphasis  on
hands-on learning. The training starts two weeks before the actu-
