Ninety-three percent of companies surveyed plan to hire Linux talent within six months. The article on ZDNet, “Survey shows companies need Linux talent and they need it bad,” also shows the same survey indicates that 90% of hiring managers are finding it difficult to locate good Linux talent.
In order to take advantage of these fantastic job opportunities available in the Linux world, many people will need training. And many companies will want to provide advanced Linux training for current employees.
Millennium Technology Consulting LLC provides Linux administration training from a two day introductory class to in-depth classes that cover everything from the Linux boot process, Linux file systems, Logical Volume Management, and managing processes to setting up an email server with spam blocking, configuring a web server and problem solving.
Millennium Technology Consulting LLC provides in-depth Linux training for System Administrators. My courses are tailored to the System Administrator who needs to get the job done on a daily basis. They also provide an excellent groundwork for System Administrators who are interested in pursuing any type of Linux Certification. These are not certification courses or certification preparatory courses.
All of these courses are developed in-house and draw upon my own experiences accumulated during more than 15 years of using Linux. They are created using my knowledge and experience as a course developer and trainer for both IBM and Red Hat. These classes cover the practical aspects of Linux System Administration. They build upon the foundation of the “Philosophy of Linux” in a way that helps the student understand how and why things are done as they are.

Theory and Practice of Linux System Administration
Theory and Practice of Linux System Administration – This 5-day course is available and costs $2495.00.
This course is intended for trainee or junior Linux Systems Administrators who wish to advance their knowledge, and administrators of other Unix versions or Windows who wish to become Linux System Administrators. This class is heavily oriented towards hands-on activities. At least half of the class time is allotted to lab projects.
Students attending this class have a choice of which distribution on which they wish to concentrate and to use for lab projects. This class can be based either on Fedora because it is the upstream distribution for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and provides some insight into features and functions that may show up in RHEL in the future, or on CentOS as it reflects the current state of RHEL.
Many of the more experienced Linux System Administrators who have taken this course also find it very valuable.

New course materials cover CentOS too
The new course materials for all courses developed by Millennium Technology Consulting LLC will cover both Fedora and CentOS. This means that presentation slides will cover those differences between distributions that are significant and meaningful. Lab projects will provide instructions for both distributions where differences exist in the commands or the tasks required to meet an objective.
The instructor will be able to teach classes using either CentOS or Fedora as the primary distribution depending upon the needs of the students and the measure of the differences between the two distributions. The instructor can then cover the differences between CentOS and Fedora in as much detail as there is time and need for.
And after the class is over, the course materials can be used as a reference for both distributions.
So whether you need to prepare for what the future of Linux holds, or you need to know exactly how to do things with today’s distributions, Millennium Technology Consulting LLC can meet your training needs.
