Why Train With The Linux Foundation 

There are many reasons to choose Linux Foundation Training:

  1. The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts the Linux project, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released). With 100+ employees (and growing!) across North America, Europe and Asia, we partner with clients for the long run.
  2. Being so close to the kernel, we are constantly updating our training to ensure that we are teaching you the most up-to-date information. Learn more about our comprehensive Linux training curriculum.
  3. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
  4. We don't sell any software or support services so there's no hidden sales agenda in our material. Our only goal is to help you learn the material.
  5. When you train with The Linux Foundation, you're learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you're using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.
  6. For companies, we are focused on helping development and IT teams maximize use of Linux, and we will work with you to create a customized on-site Linux training program or online Linux training sessions to meet your company's specific needs. In addition, The Linux Foundation offers open-enrollment courses which can be scheduled at Linux training centers or as online Linux training. Learn more about our flexible Linux training options.
