Training and Certification for Sydney, Australia?

Does anyone in Australia know if there is Linux Certification available in Sydney, Australia?

I checked the RedHat Australia site and there is a link for Australian training which I will follow up later, but am I reading right that a weekend course and certification will cost in the area of $2000 - $5000 Australian dollars??? That seems incredibly expensive. Also, the details are sketchy about what happens if you fail the test, do you sit them again for free?....

Then I went to the site. Training takes you straight to the US (why do all corporates do this?).

Anyone know of any options, or more importantly, any Sydney-siders here certified and how did you go about it?

I'm from brisbane, and I've just finished LPI level 1, the LPI exams are different in that LPI doesn't do the testing themselves, other people do it for them, and as such there are plenty of places (IIRC there was 5 in brisbane, finding 1 in sydney should not be a problem) They are $100 US per exam, 2 exams per level of qualification. has all the info

That's another avenue to try....

There is a heap in Sydney, I know I live there and have looked.

Depending what you want in the line of certs.

Me? Well I've gicen up on Linux certs right now. I couldn't be bothered. Solaris is where my skills are. I'm not doing a Sun course though. Since I now what all teh books are on about and I am getting a Sun box (ebay :-) nice and cheap) I'm just getting the book and doing all the work myself.

Same can be done for the Linux certs to though. There is no need to send a heap of $$$ on courses when you can learn it at home and then sit the test when your ready :-) Practice at home on your own box Then go sit the test
