Why train with The Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation is the go-to source for training on virtually every aspect of Linux and many other open source technologies. Here are a few things that make The Linux Foundation the right choice for training:

  1. The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts Linux and many other open source projects, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released).
  2. Being so close to the kernel The Linux Foundation is constantly updating training to ensure that the most up-to-date information is being thought. 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).
  3. The Linux Foundation does not sell any software or support services so there’s no hidden sales agenda in the training material. The only goal is to help students learn the material.
  4. 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.
