One of Ubuntu's strategies for gaining a larger user base is providing quality, comprehensive training for everyone who desires. For that purpose, Canonical has recently included Fast Lane and Bridge Education in its Ubuntu Training Partner Programme, signing and training instructors. The courses are held all across the United States of America.
There are two types of courses available: one for training System Administrators in maximizing the efficiency of Ubuntu in offices – consisting of two, 5-day courses, and a quicker, 2-day, desktop-user oriented course that focuses on providing an easy, hassle-free switch from other platforms. Trainees are also familiarized with the most important aspects of the operating system such as office suites, Internet browsing and connectivity, graphic tools or multimedia players.
All the courses are available in both classroom and e-learning formats. "Ubuntu training activities will be expanding significantly throughout 2009, with new courses and delivery mechanisms available to students globally. Stay tuned for updates over the coming months as learning to work with Ubuntu gets even easier." was stated in the official announcement on Canonical's blog, where you can also find more enrolling details.
