Technical training company Xpertise and Linux distributor Red Hat Inc. have agreed a partnership to supply Linux training across Great Britain. Red Hat training will be delivered from Xpertise sites in Altrincham, Leeds, and London, and Red Hat's site in Guildford. "Red Hat is a real growth area as organisations realise the substantial benefits that Linux can bring to their operations," said Bill Walker, the commercial director at Xpertise. Xpertise has announced that it will resell InfoBasis' Enterprise Skills Infrastructure software, which is used for tracking training needs within companies. Walker said that Xpertise will use the software to undertake training needs analysis work for its corporate customers.
