The company names 25 Linux Centers of Excellence—partners with top-quality Linux instructors and high marks for customer satisfaction.

One of the most common objections to switching from Windows or Unix to Linux, both on the server and the desktop, is that there are not enough knowledgeable Linux workers. Novell has an answer: promote Linux training throughout the world. So it is that Novell is honoring its top 25 Linux training partners for their success in driving Linux education, as Linux Centers of Excellence. These partners received this award because they delivered rapid growth in training hands-on students, and were evaluated to have top-quality Linux instructors and high marks for customer satisfaction.
Novell has long made training and certification a big part of its business customer offerings. The company now has hundreds of authorized training partners worldwide. Only the best of the best get the Linux Center of Excellence title.
Daniel Veitkus, vice president of training services for Novell, said, "We are recognizing the best of class partners who have delivered demonstrable results in expanding the Linux ecosystem, driving Linux more firmly into the marketplace."
