Education

Open Answers has been providing education and training services as a core part of the portfolio for over a decade. All our instructors have gained wide experience working for both our Unix vendor and corporate customers in the development and administration of systems and delivery of support.

Open Answers People This breadth of experience has proved invaluable in a teaching environment, both in the development of material and the delivery of training courses that reflect the problems and challenges students will encounter.
Open Answers has developed and delivered courses for a number of vendors, and a wide range of internal and external students from first time users upwards.
We have trained Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) engineers across the world in Solaris kernel and networking internals, troubleshooting and development. This is a clear demonstration of the esteem in which Open Answers personnel are held within the UNIX community – both for their in depth UNIX knowledge and ability to communicate with individuals irrespective of technical expertise or experience.

For those organisations that have embraced new technologies including open source and free software, courses can be tailored to encompass specific needs if a standard class does not fit the bill. In addition, skills transfer can form a core component of consultancy activities.
