I have taught over 16 commercial multi-day classes covering BSD
administration which have also included some extras like shell
fundamentals, some Apache HTTPD, packet filtering (IPFW, PF, or IPF)
basics, postfix or sendmail basics, and BIND basics. I am currently
planning a class to be held near DFW Texas the second week of April. I
have used basically the same *BSD course outlines that I have improved and
modified over six years. So I am wondering if I should completely change
my course outline and courseware to just specifically cover "BSDA" (so I
would cut out a lot of what I currently cover but add a lot more).
What do you think about: Is it possible to cover all the BSD Certification
Group BSDA (BSD Associate) Certification Requirements in a 3 to 5 day
I don't think it is, especially since it should cover some installation
and some steps specific for four BSD operating systems.
Also, is it more of a selling point or more value to have a well rounded
"BSDA" course versus a BSD-specific admin course that also covers some
Apache HTTPD, packet filtering (IPFW, PF, or IPF) basics, postfix or
sendmail basics, and BIND basics?
I am curious about your thoughts on this.

p.s. A few months ago, I started building a database of BSD and open
source trainers. Many from this list emailed their details. I am slowly
working on a website that will highlight the skills taught and locations
