Novell Adds Several New Courses to On-demand Training

  • Audio

The Novell On-demand Training direction is simple and it just happens to be filling the biggest customer-satisfaction need for Novell training customers: making courses available to as many users as possible in an easily consumable way. Novell is moving into Web-based e-learning to meet the needs of students who don't have classroom training available in their area or, with this economy, in their budget.

In the April issue of Novell Connection, the article "What You Need, When You Need It: Getting Novell On-demand Training When You Want It Wherever you Are" introduced the value of On-Demand Training, a delivery method that provides a convenient and flexible way to access Novell training courses that is available whenever and wherever you are from within a browser. (Check out the complimentary On-demand Training Courses so you can actually experience them.)

The perfect option if you do not have the time or budget for onsite or even scheduled online classroom training, On-demand Training eliminates the need for you to take time away from work for travel and training. It reduces expenses and lost productivity while still giving you the expertise you need to remain competitive. With On-demand Training, Novell is also able to more easily reach students who prefer the digital type of learning experience, a group of us that is obviously growing every day.

"What You Need, When You Need It" focused on the value, flexibility, convenience, quality and content provided by this important training option. In regard to this last benefit-content-we noted that at the time, Novell was offering 40 courses for new product users, administrators, technical experts and end users. Furthermore, we promised that Novell would be providing an even more diverse and ever-growing library that covers the spectrum of Novell solutions.

That time is now. New users, as well as those holding current one-year subscriptions will have access not only to the original library but to many exciting courses being unveiled within the year. These include four important SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 courses that are available this month and two more that will be added by the end of the year. Stay tuned in an upcoming issue to read more about the other two courses.

Four New SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Courses Now Available

Four new courses in the On-demand Training library have now been made available in the high-level training that previously were available only through Partner-led training and self-study kits. The first of these four courses provide training at a novice and intermediate level that will help you prepare to pass the Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) 11 certification exam # 050-720 and become a CLA. The others prepare you for the Certified Linux Professional (CLP) 11 Practicum exam, and the planned Certified Linux Desktop Professional (CLDP). These important credentials and exams demonstrate and prove your abilities to current and prospective employers. And as we all know, enough can't be said about taking care of yourself in that regard.

Before we jump into deeper descriptions of each course, you should know a bit more about the learning paths. If you're going for more skills for the server, you'll want to take 3101, then 3102 and then 3103. If you want to focus on the desktop, start with the same first two courses, 3101 and 3102, then take 3104. For more information about the CLA learning path. For more information on the CLP learning path.

SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Fundamentals (Course 3101 v1)

Want to learn the basics of SUSE Linux Enterprise 11? Interested in becoming a Certified Linux Administrator? This course is for you.

Designed for beginners, this course requires you to have only basic computer skills on any operating system. This course is ideal for you if you have little or no experience with any distribution of Linux or if you are specifically seeking a fundamental understanding of the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 operating system. A course that would usually take three days when delivered as Partner-led training, the On-demand version of this course enables you to complete it at your own pace, taking either more or less time. In addition, you can go back and repeat sections or the entire course as often as you want or need to. It introduces you to the fundamentals of Linux and helps you gain a basic understanding of the core features of the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 operating system. It is also the first of a two-course path towards the CLA 11 exam.

Participants are taught essential skills that are prerequisites for entry-level Linux administrators or help desk technicians.
