Yes. Open University courses are fully recognised by the Education Department, the Employment Department and by employers and schools all over the country. The only way to cheat is to look up the answers and since the exams are all "real" (ie closed and locked away - just like in any other educational establishment) the certificate you get at the end is equally real.

The OU has been going for years, longer than many universities (if you only count there start date from when they were no longer a polytechnic).

The OU is a "proper" University. It's unlikely that they will offer a specific Linux degree - you are more likely to see a Computer Science or other advanced degree which may at some point in the X years of learning touch on Linux. Try www.azlan.com - they are a training provider who offer Cisco, MS and Linux courses. (NB, I am not affiliated with them but I have used them).

Hello again has any body heard of "scheideger training" i was looking at doing my "CNNA" i thought they were quite expensive they said it would cost about 20pw for about 2years if you study about 10 hours a week are they taking the piss or are they for real. I think i made a MISTAKE when i went on to there website i signed up for some one to get in touch i thought they would just send me some info in my mailbox all they seem to do is phone me and try to put me under pressure to let some one come round my house.and discuss things. has any body else had this experience? has any body heard of them ? are they a reputable company?are they trying to rob me?
