“Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it.” (Alan Moore, V for Vendetta)

Ironically, Linux+, an open-source software, has not been so open-source in its training. Students have spent thousands to learn the operating system, but those days are over. Linux is a very well liked platform for those who use it, and an understanding of how to manage, implement and maintain it, can be very valuable to an IT career. In fact, if you are growing a Cyber Security career, this class is valuable as well, as you will be expected to have a fundamental working knowledge in many penetration testing tactics. Gain a fundamental knowledge and learn the skills that are required of junior Linux administrators by taking our FREE CompTIA Linux+ online training course.

About the Online CompTIA Linux+ Training Class

Linux+ is a flexible, open-source, low-cost platform favored for its ease of use in virtualization and cloud-based applications. More organizations are adopting Linux into their enterprise, and thus the need for Linux+ certified employees is growing. Our free, self-paced online Linux+ training prepares students with the knowledge to become a certified Linux+ expert, spanning a curriculum that covers Linux maintenance tasks, user assistance and installation and configuration.

If you are a technician with six months (or more) experience installing, operating and maintaining Linux operating systems, this course will help you to meet the certification requirements and prepare for the exam by providing you with a broad awareness of Linux operating systems. Individuals who hold this certification show employers that they demonstrate a critical knowledge of installation, operation, administration and troubleshooting devices.

Linux administrators, junior network administrators, systems administrators, Linux database administrators and web administrators can all benefit from this certification. A Linux certification can definitely provide several new opportunities for growing IT and Cyber Security professionals. The demand for skilled professionals who can help their organization transition to open-source platforms are steadily increasing. Linux training can help you to become one of these skilled professionals—so what’s stopping you? Start training at your own pace, today.

Because I would take it, but I want to work on my CompTIA A+ first. But before anything, I have to finish my Philo 3 class (I have until July 17th) and it's a lot of reading so I don't want to mix two courses.

Thanks so much for this thread. I'm quite new to Linux and don't start my Bachelor of IT course for another month or two so this is a great way to catch up on lost time.

Morning Nick - well, morning here on the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S  :)  - big thanks for the share and the links.

 

Just signed up and created an account.

 

Not sure I'm ready to tackle this at this point, like so many others, there is quite a bit more I need to read and work on for the day-job, but I appreciate knowing about it.

 

onward,

 

Winterland
