A recent thread asked about Linux and Unix courses at SRJC.

Costing a lot more than SRJC, are at least 2 other alternatives:



It also should be noted that there is now Apple Mac OS X Server  
Certification. There is information about this on the Apple website  
and there are also O'Reilly books about this. I know about this  
because I am Apple Mac OS X Server certified.

I also noticed in recent listing at Lucas, they are looking for ITIL  


Has anyone ever taken an ITIL course or read an ITIL book?
