HATTIESBURG, Miss., Mar 29, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Linux Professional Institute's United States Affiliate (LPI-US) is pleased to announce that The Training Camp has been approved to receive designation as a LPI-US Approved Training Partner (LATP).

"The LATP program was established to identify and support professional IT training centers that demonstrate a higher level of commitment to LPI and IT professionals," said LPI-US program manager Wesley Duffee-Braun. "We have tremendous support for the LATP program throughout the country, and we're pleased and honored to have The Training Camp (www.trainingcamp.com) serve as the inaugural member."
