CompTIA Linux+ and Unix Training

Linux and UNIX operating systems have become predominant leaders in commercial computing environments, appearing everywhere from desktops to servers. The popularity of Linux/UNIX servers and workstations in todays’ business environment requires knowledgeable and experienced systems administrators who can effectively support a wide range of system configurations, from standalone desktop machines to high-performance enterprise servers. While Microsoft owns the majority of the market share for IT infrastructure, Linux is utilized heavily by large organizations, due to its ability to be customized more extensively. That has caused many Fortune 500 companies and government entities to migrate over to Linux, creating a large amount of open positions for IT professionals with these credentials.

 

By taking the Linux+ and Unix Certification Training program you will become an expert in one of the world’s most popular Operating Systems. In addition to the course, you will be working with Live Online Labs, allowing for intensive hands-on practice via Linux infrastructure. Linux and Unix are extremely popular within Fortune 500 and Government organizations, due to its ability to withstand large amounts of users as well as its ability for customization. With the amount of infrastructure built on these technologies, there is always a large demand for those that are proficient in the platform. In this program you will gain the knowledge and skills required to install, configure and support a Linux/UNIX server to meet your organization’s critical administrative needs. You will learn to control and troubleshoot the boot process; attach local storage and create file systems; and deliver file, print and network service. The hands-on live lab environment will help you prepare for your exam but also gain the real world experience necessary to succeed in the workplace.
