The CompTIA Linux+ is the most popular Linux certification in the world. It’s a must-have for any person who wants to work in this area of IT. It’s now in its 20th year and has been updated recently marking a shift from the LIPC1 syllabus (which it now shares around 60% content with).

All US government jobs and contracts require IT staff to possess a CompTIA certification for the technology they support. Linux is tested in Cisco exams also.

This course has been completely revised and updated for the brand new Linux+ exam:

  • XK0-004 – Linux+

We take you by the hand and guide you through the entire Linux+ syllabus from start to finish. Included are more than $400 worth of practice exams, advanced multi-technology labs, real-world and exam tricks and tips and to guarantee your success come exam day.

Take this course if you:

  • Are a novice and want to learn Linux basics
  • Want to work in any government IT roles (all require Linux+)
  • Find just reading a study guide not sufficient to understand the material
  • Can’t seem to nail subjects such as scripting or bash
  • Want an easy-to-follow study program that will get you results
  • Can’t find enough practice exams with solutions to prepare yourself
  • Want to dramatically improve your hands-on Linux skills
