Linux Certification Training – Practice Labs and Exams

LPI is the global certification standard and career support organization for Linux open source professionals. With more than 600,000 exams delivered, it’s the world’s first and largest vendor-neutral Linux and open source certification body. LPI has certified professionals in over 180 countries, delivers exams in 9 languages, and has hundreds of training partners.

This course has been completely revised and updated for the brand new LPIC exams:

  • 010-160 – LPI: Linux Essentials (Linux Beginners)
  • 101-500 – LPIC-1: System Administrator
  • 102-500 – LPIC-1: System Administrator

Linux Administrator Training

Linux engineers are in huge demand at the moment and with a shortfall of Linux certified engineers it’s easier then ever to land a rewarding and well paid job.

Your Linux certification training course starts with Linux beginner labs preparing you for the LPI Essentials certification exam which is aimed at junior Linux engineers. After that, you prepare for the Linux administrator exam, the Linux LPIC-1.

Linux practice labs are the ONLY way to prepare for the Linux exams. You can read as many books as you like but until you install, configure and troubleshoot the many available Linux services and systems you will never understand enough to pass the exams (or do the job).

We take you by the hand and guide you through the entire LPIC Essentials and Administrator. Included are more than $400 worth of Linux practice tests, advanced multi-technology labs, real-world and exam tricks and tips and to guarantee your success come exam day.

Your Linux certification training instructor is an industry expert. He configures and troubleshoots Linux for large international companies on a daily basis. He walks you through all the important Linux features including working with files and directories, shell scripting, boot manager, security, networking, GUI, troubleshooting, managing printers, managing hard disks and much more.

Take this course if you:

  • Are a novice and want to learn Linux basics
  • Want to pass your Linux Administrator exams
  • 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
