Program Goals Statement

Open Source is software code available for others to look at, modify, and use. It provides an alternative-computing platform that is far more under the control of the user and developer. It also meets the need for training required by companies and government agencies beginning to use open source products.

Program Information

  • Basic knowledge of computers, operating systems, and application software is of value but is not required.
