SCO Responds To Critical Shortage of Skilled Technology Workers


SCO Announces Certified UNIX Systems Administrator Certification Program

SANTA CRUZ, CA (November 3, 1998) - SCO (NASDAQ: SCOC) responded to the market demand for more certified IT professionals by announcing the SCO Certified UNIX Systems Administrator certification, an entry level certification program for UNIX Administrators. This level of certification makes it easy for college students and job re-entry participants to get a foot in the door in the IT industry. SCO's certification program is a comprehensive program which allows students to gain and enhance business critical computer skills which can then be utilized in the IT industry.

SCO Program Responds to Virginia Tech Survey
SCO's announcement comes on the heels of a recent survey that shows that 1 in every 10 information technology jobs in the United States remains unfilled. Conducted by Virginia Tech, the study estimated that 346,000 computer programmer and systems analyst jobs are vacant in U.S. companies with more than 100 employees. In response to the survey, the US government recently announced a broad and unique federal effort to help train more computer programmers.

"The shortage of skilled IT professionals threatens to undermine the growth of the US economy," said David Taylor, vice president worldwide field programs, SCO. "This new program from SCO helps address this shortage by allowing both those who already work in the IT industry and college students to obtain the training they need to help fill the void."

To obtain a certificate, participants must complete the SCO OpenServer Release 5 System Administration (#090-052) or UnixWare 7 System Administration (#090-076) exam. These exams are administered through Sylvan Prometric Testing Centers.
