Canonical streamlines Ubuntu training
Following the announcement earlier that month by the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) that it was updating its certifications to bring them in line with current Linux developments, Canonical has announced changes to its Ubuntu Certified Professional (UCP) qualification. The changes will mean that the two foundation courses of the UCP, previously covered in two five-day courses, will now be completed in just one five-day course.
The five-day course will focus solely on the Ubuntu elements of the certification and preparation for the Ubuntu 199 exam, Canonical said on its official blog.
UCP is designed for junior-to-intermediate-level system administrators working in organisations that are about to deploy, or have already deployed, Ubuntu desktops and servers in the office.
Ubuntu Training Partners will offer classroom-based training for this course from May 2009, the company said. An e-learning version of the course will also be available from June.
