It's good to see some positive stuff being taught at respected 
institutions, but sometimes ya gotta wonder...

I'd sure like to know exactly what certification they're talking about 
when they mention FreeBSD, though:

"The continued exploitations of security holes in the Microsoft Windows 
operating systems have produced an obvious need for more secure software."

[Wasn't BSD around before Mickeysoft?]

"The Berkeley Software Distribution, developed by the Computer Science 
Research Group at the University of California, has developed into the 
most secure open source codebase in the world. BSD derivative operating 
systems, including OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Apple's Macintosh OS X, 
are some of the most security-conscious operating systems in the world. 
They are all based on the open-source standards produced by the original 
BSD distributions.

In the business world, the need for competent personnel who are familiar 
with the open source concept and availability of programs has never been 
higher --it's rate of growth shows no sign of diminishing either now or 
in the future

The path to success in the professional world of Information Technology 
leads straight through the world of open source and open standards. 
There has never been a better time to become certified in these 
important technology areas

Complete the three stage training and receive certification in open 
source unix operating systems. The three courses are: 1 Fundamentals of 
Open Source Operating Systems 2.Administration I 3. Administration II 
The courses begin via eLearning every 4 weeks, and in-class each Fall 
and Spring."
