Solaris Courses are retired from the end of October 2017

For over 28 years we have been providing the Solaris community (in the UK, Europe, and the USA) with an alternative to the manufacturer's courses, providing a path to the Oracle Solaris certifications.
This last year has seen a dramatic shift in business from Solaris to Linux, especially the RedHat/CentOS and Oracle Linux varieties. From our point of view, Solaris courses are no longer viable, owing to the time involved in keeping courseware up-to-date, buying Oracle licenses, and fast declining sales. In addition, the future development of Solaris itself looks uncertain, with no Solaris 12 on the roadmap and only "point" releases promised. Significatly, Oracle Linux is now available on SPARC.
