Obsidian extends training arm into KZN and Western Cape

By   |  June 21, 2005

Obsidian Systems today announced plans to offer Linux training in the Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal. To expand into these two new regions the company has linked up with IT Intellect which will provide the training facilities in the two provinces. Obsidian will provide the trainers and examinations.

Muggie van Staden, MD of Obsidian Systems, says \”this is exciting news for Obsidian and the corporate market, since it not only strengthens the name Obsidian has built for itself in the training market, but will ensure that an even greater volume of Linux skills are made available to the South African market over the coming year.\”

Van Staden says that the training on offer will be alternated between Durban and Cape Town each month. “We will most likely start with our first course in Durban however, since this is where the major demand stems from,” he says.

Exams will be written at the IT Intellect training centres based on demand.

By taking this alternate monthly approach, it’s possible for a student to complete the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) qualification within six months. Through Obsidian’s Johannesburg training facility the same track can be completed in the space of one month. Van Staden says, however, that he advises against the one month route since it is a rigorous curriculum and students need time to practice the skills gained before writing the examinations..

Van Staden says the increasing demand for Linux skills in the past few months has been overwhelming. “We are training and certifying at least three times the volume of students compared to last year. \”

The demand is so strong, says Van Staden, that the company is also looking to expand its coverage into Sub Saharan Africa. \”In the months to come, we will be investigating offering training services throughout Sub Saharan Africa and may well see expansion into those areas sooner than the market anticipates.”
