A major barrier against adoption and deployment of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) in developing of countries in the Asia Pacific is the lack of human resources with FOSS skills. This introductory programme aims to address the problem by training trainers in countries, so that these trainers in turn will be able to train other trainers and therefore kick start self sustaining development of FOSS human resources. This course also introduces Linux trainers to training with open content Linux system administration training materials and low cost LPI certification examinations.
TrainingTrainees for system administration will be able to maintain workstations and basic LAN and Internet server services. Detailed objectives for LPIC Level 1 certification are available from the links provided below:
