My customer is looking to see what IBM might have for Red Hat Linux online/free study guides or training -- do we have anything like that? My customer set in this case are primarily AIX sys admins who want to get familiar with Linux and possibly go for some certifications in Linux.

Re: Red Hat Linux training2013-01-22T21:11:23ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.We're poking around a bit. I'm not sure IBM actually provides Red Hat training for free - at least over and above what's already available on the Red Hat training site (http://www.redhat.com/training/). I'm sure there are services teams inside IBM and across business partners who might have specialized and targeted training, so if you need something specific that may be the path to try.There's another portal that several of us watch: http://poweritpro.com/. Mel Beckham and Erwin Earley have published a number of educational and informative articles around Linux on Power, many of which are targeted at existing Power customers who are naturally more familiar with AIX and/or IBM i. Here's a couple of examples:Updated on 2013-01-22T21:11:23Z at 2013-01-22T21:11:23Z by Bill_Buros

Re: Red Hat Linux training2013-01-23T04:58:24ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.There are a few workshops that are provided free of charge for LInux on Power. These are usually offered to prospective customers that are in the process of purchasing Power equipment. They are hosted by a local Power CTS and sales rep. I believe the training is called Power Virtualization for Linux which is lead by the IBM STG ATS group. I hosted one of these 3 day workshops in San Antonio last year. It was a great success.The Workshop requires about 20 students to make to workshop. This is a hands-on workshop and it assumes working knowledge of Linux.
