Description of event:

LinuxCertified.com,  a  leading  provider   of   Linux  training, will
offer its   next   weekend bootcamp on April 7 - 8th  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 actual class,  with  access to
an online Linux server, where students complete  few  challenging
pre-class activities.  Attendees  get  a  powerful Linux laptop on their
arrival, along with other class materials. They load Linux on their laptop
during the class, and use it for all the class activities and assignments.
At the  end of  the class they  take  this  laptop   with   them   to
further enhance their Linux expertise. Absolute beginners  with no  UNIX
experience can  first come to  the   popular   "Linux   for   Beginners"
class  and subsequently join the certification bootcamp.

Rapid growth of Linux into corporate and government  IT  environments is
fueling  the need  for  Linux  certified  professionals. CIOs and
managers are eager to have Linux experts in  their  organizations. A
certification provides a tangible mechanism for their hiring evaluation, as
well as a means to market  the  prowess  of organizations.

The  weekend bootcamp is specially designed to prepare the attendees for
the objectives of Level 1 certification exams offered  by  Linux
Professional Institute (LPI). The   workshop also meets the objectives of
the  Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam and Sair Linux & GNU
certification (LCA).
Our attendees build a strong sense of community with our  instructors,
fellow students, and  our   network  of  recruiters  and  companies looking
for Linux consultants.
