Linux Community Intitiative

Linux Essentials2In collaboration with The Open University the Cisco Networking Academy is launching an initiative to enable schools, colleges and other educational organizations who are not yet a member of the global Cisco Networking Academy Program to teach Linux skills for free. The initiative was born in the UK but quickly expanded into other countries in Europe.

If you are from a school, college, training provider, educational charity, university or another valid interested party, you can join this community and apply to become a Cisco Networking Academy delivering LPI Linux courses.
