Why study this course

CompTIA Linux+ validates the competencies required of an early career systems administrator supporting Linux systems.  

CompTIA Linux+ validates the skills administrators need to secure the enterprise, power the cloud and keep systems running. The new certification ensures that IT professionals, software developers, cyber security engineers and penetration testers have these necessary skills to support today’s tech systems. 

Learn the knowledge and skills needed to configure, manage, operate, and troubleshoot Linux on-premises and cloud-based server environments, while using security best practices, scripting, containerisation, and automation, as well as prepare candidates to take the CompTIA Linux+ certification exam. 

CompTIA Linux+ is the only job-focused Linux certification covering the latest foundational skills demanded by hiring managers. Unlike other certifications, the new exam includes performance-based and multiple-choice questions to identify the employees who can do the job. The exam covers tasks associated with all major distributions of Linux, setting the foundation for advanced vendor/distro-specific knowledge. 

This five-day training course aligns to the latest version of CompTIA Linux+ (XK0-005).

Please note: The exam is not included in the course fee but can be purchased separately. Please contact us for a quote.
