Training in New Zealand

Hi all I am from Auckland, New Zealand.

I am wondering if there are any courses in Auckland that teach people how to use linux. There are lots of computer courses for xp and xp software, even Mac, but not for linux as far as I know. If there are not there should be and maybe someone should start one up. Are there any online based ones, or computer tutors for this??? it would be great if there was.

If anyone from this part of the country knows of anything that can help me out I would be grateful.

I don't know about official courses, but I found an Aukland LUG (Linux User Group). I'm sure they can help to provide local information, or maybe even help you directly:

They have a mailing list whose archives can be found here:
And a website:
