Active Literacy / Free Training
For a life of achievement you need to be literate, so you might as well get used to it straight off. Once you've learnt to read well at home, school or wherever, the computing world and big-money careers become open to you.

Next then, you have two choices:
1. Borrow and/or pay someone else big money to train you at their pace, or
2. Have the Internet revolution drive your knowledge on, at your own pace.

Option 1's main assets are the network of friends you'll meet on courses, sharing up-to-date skills and interests, and formal qualifications. For option 1, training providers are listed at left and below on this page. Some websites and organisations listed - local and distant - offer free training opportunities also. There is non-computer training too.

Most paid courses will direct you online for advanced study anyway. So if you're ready for option 2 now, start here: Softpanorama "(slightly skeptical) Open Source Software Educational Society"; continue with GNU/Linux+OSS, technical News & Webwork InfoHelp link pages; for a look at the future of online training, see MIT OpenCourseWare. Good luck ~ Rik :-)
