There are a number of companies offering training in free software -
GBDirect (www.gbdirect.co.uk) is just one that I can think of. The UKUUG
also runs tutorials several times a year on topics such as RT (which I

There are other groups as well, but I think such training is generally
offering by quite small companies who most people might not have heard
