About Us


Celebrating 18 Years of Open Source Advocacy, Education, and Development

Bluepoint is a non-profit Open Source education and development center. It is the first organization in the Philippines to focus on Linux and Open Source training.


VISION

Bluepoint seeks to be the primary institution focused on Linux and Open Source education based in the Philippines and recognized worldwide.

We started providing vendor-independent Linux training in 1999 with our Total Linux® course, which gradually revolved around the Red Hat Linux distribution - Red Hat being the global leader in developing, deploying and managing Linux and Open Source solutions.

In 2002, Bluepoint offered Red Hat's Linux training and acclaimed Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) programs throughout the Philippines as the official Red Hat Certified Training and Education Center (RHCTEC). At the time, RHCE was named one of IT industry's "10 Hottest Certifications" and ranked as the highest quality training and certification in IT.
