As companies use open source to accelerate innovation and reduce R&D costs, hiring managers are looking for the talent to help establish, build and sustain these projects. In fact, according to the 2016 Open Source Jobs Report, 65 percent of recruiters say open source hiring will increase more than any other part of their business over the next six months, and 79 percent of them have increased incentives to hold on to their current open source professionals.
This is where The Linux Foundation and its global Authorized Training Partners (ATP) come in. From tools to licensing, certification, training and events to scale any open source project, we work together to increase access, grow talent and support career development opportunities for open source professionals all around the world.
Our Authorized Training Partners program offers open enrollment and corporate onsite training courses that utilize the same course curriculum as we do. They meet strict benchmarks for experience and quality and are able to supply The Linux Foundation Authorized Instructors for course delivery.

“It’s fantastic to be able to work with such experienced and well-respected training providers to expand the reach of our Linux and open source courses,” said The Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin. “Our courses are very accessible because they're available online or by subscription; however, some individuals prefer a classroom environment. Our Authorized Training Partners enable people all over the world to receive the highest quality educational content in their own communities, helping us to meet the growing worldwide demand for open source talent.”
