introduced a new concept in training. Micro-training provides training
for very small class sizes of 1-3 individuals in their own working environment.

Micro-training can take place in as
little as three days or for as long as six months, depending on the needs of
your organization. Because the groups are very small, the instructor can
immediately address the needs of each student. Students will learn basic
techniques as well as those that are very specific to their own systems. The
instructor is able to work through problems with the student so they will have
a better understanding of their own system and will be knowledgeable on how to
troubleshoot in the future.
This system is excellent for system administrators, companies
that are transitioning to UNIX or LINUX from another environment, or companies
who have purchased new computers and need to train one or two professionals to
set up and maintain their new systems.
