Video training course for the CompTIA Linux+ and Linux LPIC-1 exams. This course is aimed at complete beginners to the Linux environment and is a requirement for any government jobs or contract work. It's also ideal for anyone who wants to learn about this ubiquitous operating system.
The new CompTIA Linux+ is for the IT pro, who will use Linux to manage everything from cars and smartphones to servers and supercomputers, as a vast number of enterprises use Linux in the cloud, cybersecurity, mobile, and web administration applications. It is currently ranked as the #1 Linux certification exam.
LPIC-1 is the first certification in the multi-level Linux professional certification program of the Linux Professional Institute (LPI). The LPIC-1 will validate the candidate's ability to perform maintenance tasks on the command line, install and configure a computer running Linux and configure basic networking.
One of the benefits of passing your Linux Certification is that it's proof to employers that you are self motivated and are familiar with the foundations of Linux and have mastery over the basic commands and concepts of the operating system. Having the Linux certifications including the CompTIA Linux+ and LPIC-1 is a quick way to show employers that you have Linux knowledge, and will help you get your foot in the door for Linux-related job opportunities, especially if you’re at a junior level.
Linux know-how is a must-have for many IT careers, including:
- Penetration Testers
- Network Administrators
- System Admins
- CyberOps Support
- CyberSecurity Professionals
Linux certification and knowledge is also a must-have for network engineers, programmers and cloud engineers. It's also tested in, Cisco and Microsoft exams. This entire course can be completed on your home computer using a virtual machine and a free Linux distro. We've combined it so you can pass two exams at the end of the course, saving you valuable time and effort.
