I grew up with Unix and TCP/IP. I actually got involved with Unix in 1976! I have seen it all and done it all. A few months ago, when I could not answer a question in class directly, the student actually paid me a compliment: “Wow, you seem to have forgotten more about Unix then I will ever know about it.”

Having a thorough knowledge is one thing, being able to present it is quite another. I know not only what to tell, but also what not to tell — because it is information that is not important to the students at this moment.I have a university degree, and many of customers required me to have some formal proof of educational competence. Then I have peer reviews, and a least five days a year train-the-trainer each year. My largest asset is, however, my huge experience, not only with Unix and TCP/IP, but also with adult learning techniques and education. It pays off: in tje post class surveys over the last two years I had, on a scale of five, less than 5 percent of three, and zero percent of two or less!


I can deliver training for every level of user, on site or in our own facilities.
