Media Alert - Red Hat Introduces Expanded eLearning Course Curriculum


Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), a leader in training and certification on Linux and open source technologies, today announced an expanded catalog of eLearning courses. These courses add to Red Hat's already popular classroom and eLearning programs for the RHCE track and for developers.

The new Red Hat eLearning schedule includes courses on Internet infrastructure, networking fundamentals, eCommerce architecture and planning, database design and skills, and web development skills including XML, HTML, JDBC and JSP. Many of the new courses provide pre-requisite or co-requisite skills for Red Hat's RHCE Program or other classroom-based hands-on training offerings for Linux programmers, eCommerce developers, embedded systems engineers and security skills.

Each Red Hat eLearning course offers results-oriented, interactive learning at the student's own pace. Tutors are available to guide students and answer questions via email. Command-line simulations of actual tasks together with other interactive capabilities assure rapid skills acquisition. Students can also access fellow classmates via discussion groups and chat.

"These new courses provide the perfect complement to our classroom-based training courses by enabling students to rapidly develop the skills necessary for the pre-requisite networking fundamentals of RHCE, as well as for Web and eCommerce-related scripting and programming languages," said Peter Childers, vice president, Red Hat Global Learning Services. "By combining eLearning with classroom based training, our corporate and individual customers can get the ultimate in flexibility and value for professional development."
