At the Linux World Expo in London today, the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) announced the Linux Authorised Training Partner (LATP) program. This will be the only training program covering all versions of Linux, and complementing the LPI’s existing internationally accepted certification standard. The program will be run in the UK by LPI affiliates Open Forum Europe.

At the program launch, the ITS Group were announced as the first LATP partner in the UK. Already well known for over a decade of vendor certified training and IT services to the public sector, the ITS Group already offers SuSe training as part of the Novell Certified Linux Engineer training program. The addition of the neutral LPI certification training is a response to the recent strong interest in Linux and Open Source shown by public and private sectors alike.

Part of the growing maturity of Linux is the increasing compatibility of the various distributions. In today’s marketplace Linux skills need to be version independent and now Linux training is changing to reflect this. As part of the LATP’s quality assurance requirement, partners like the ITS Group must use approved training materials and LPI certified trainers. The program will be a benchmark for the industry, helping Linux to achieve it’s full potential as one of the world’s leading operating systems.

The ITS Group is offering the LPI 101 and 102 courses and the Novell Certified Linux Engineer track at it’s training centres in Bristol and Edinburgh and on customer sites. For more information visit []
