Industry standard textbooks are reviewed, in many cases updated with subject matter from emerging new areas of information technology, and augmented with presentation slides developed from the CETi knowledge base and technology partner consultancy assignments.

TBRPS Textbook review inclusive of sample programs and supplemental exercises based upon hybrid implementations of proprietary and open source software.
TBRBP Textbook review based upon the application of best practices and guidelines.

Textbooks also are compared to the source software company certification standards and examinations; case studies, examples, code snippets are analyzed and tested. The derivative notes and reviewer opinions become part of the CETi knowledge base.

The challenge is to update and transform the courseware library into distance- and e-learning services and products which helps people learn.
