Hello all

A couple of my colleagues have  opportunities long term contracts on a clients site.

Presently they are entry level very Junior Technicians with basic PC and MS Windows experience.

However everything on the clients site is Linux based.

I am looking for ideas on how to:

start them off with Linux training courses.  

Training that is of a decent quality,

Starts with the very basics and has a good progression into more advanced stuff should they wish to do so.

They would consider anything from Online, DVD, or Classroom(based in Ireland).

Value for Money is hugely important as these people are on entry level salaries

Thank you
Robbie.

here are a couple of online resources which helped me

http://www.tutorialspoint.com/listtutorials/linux/basic-concepts/1
http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/

As they move into advanced topics a good book I would recommend is:
"The Linux Programming Interface"

Beginners guide to bash should help them get started too.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Be aware, LinuxCBTs are good only for basic or conceptual understanding

Would anyone recommend this?

definitely. But do it after having worked for sometime on practical Linux projects. Don't do it for the sake of a certificate.
