This is a bit of a ways off, but I wanted to give a headsup since it is a
limited class size for each class (max 35 students from my understanding)
and registration is happening now.
At Contra Costa College in San Pablo, CA ( North Bay )
HPC-110 Introduction to Linux Systems - taught by me, Jennifer Davis
HPC-250 HPC System Administration - taught by Alan Horn, BayLISA Board
These are semester length classes that meet twice a week in the evenings
for a low fee of ~$75. I believe it's $25 per credit hour, plus some
amount for registration.
I will be covering from logging in to kernel configuration for this first
class. If you've always wanted a beginning hands on introduction to
Linux, this will be a great opportunity for you to get a good solid feel
for it. Additionally I will be covering topics like "Introduction to the
Shell", "Organization of the File System", "Security and Access Control",
"Power Tools", "Shell Programming", "Advanced File Systems", and more.
Spring time next year, I will be doing a Linux System Administration class
to follow this beginning intro to Linux class.
Alan will be covering clusters and system administration of clusters.
Again this will be a hands on type class, but is more advanced and is
focused on Linux.
You don't have to be pursuing a degree, or certificate of any kind
to register for these classes. You can take them as further career
education. There is a certificate program if that interests you offered
through Contra Costa for aspiring system administrators.

program here: http://www.contracosta.edu/
If you would be interested in a Distance course based on either of these
topics, let me know and I'll let others know up the chain.
