2-course program: $1,800
The Linux Administrator certificate program provides a thorough introduction to UNIX and Linux fundamentals as well as essential administration skills required to maintain a Linux system in a networked business environment. Students will learn to create Bash and Korn shell scripts and develop solid grounding in the X Window System, and will also learn about essential commands, file system structure and navigation, and process creation and management. Students will be introduced to regular expressions and the power tools that use them including grep, sed, and awk. Admin topics include installing, configuring and maintaining an Enterprise Linux system, as well as planning and implementing backup strategies and configuring and deploying network services.
Upon completion of this program, students will have developed an appropriate knowledge base and hands-on experience to pursue a Linux Essentials certification from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) after program completion. The student will have learned Unix environment fundamentals as well as shell scripting skills employed by power users. Additionally, the student will learn more advanced skills that are related to Linux system administration, and will gain a solid foundation of knowledge that would be helpful for the Linux Administrator certification from LPI. Regardless of whether or not students wish to pursue certification after program completion, students will have a skillset that enables them to perform support roles related to Unix/Linux, as well as entry-level Unix/Linux system administrator roles.
On-Demand learning gives you the flexibility to plan study time around the rest of your day. Our programs combine video, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Labs are performed via remote access to a dedicated lab machine (unless a student requests to utilize their own equipment). Our unique commitment to student success includes a personal instructor to assure that your courses are completed on time with full understanding of both the lecture content and the lab exercises, and also to serve as a resource when you have questions or need assistance with lab work.
