Thanks for the link. It is always good to hear about *BSD classes being

I don't see anything about "certification" or evaluating skills there
other than it says complete the three stages and receive certification.

It just looks like normal FreeBSD classes like I have been teaching for
around four years (which also have a "certificate of course completion").

Except they say "eLearning" -- my classes are in a real classroom
environment. (We do hope to soon start providing *BSD training with video
soon ... starting with Apache Web Server Administration.)

FreeBSD team"?
