Many young people are self taught computer programmers who may be very sophisticated in some areas but then lack basic capabilities in others. It will be an interesting challenge to provide a Linux training program that can engage new recruits while also ensuring that all the basic points get covered. I'm guessing the best approach would be some kind of pretesting process and then modules tailored to address the identified gaps while providing advanced materials in the areas with which the recruit is already familiar.
