CompTIA - Linux+ Boot Camp

Training Information

Duration: 5 days (40 hours)

Course Description

Our 5-day CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI Boot Camp covers the most current knowledge and vendor-neutral skills required for IT professionals working with Linux. This course will leave you with the knowledge and skills to successfully work at the Linux command line, perform maintenance tasks, assist users, and install and configure workstations.

Why should I get Linux+ Certified?

Linux is quickly becoming a preferred software platform—it’s low cost, provides flexibility and is compatible with virtualization and cloud applications. As more organizations implement Linux, employers will be looking for administrators who have a solid technical, foundational knowledge of Linux systems. Being Linux+ certified will show that you have the technical aptitude to get the job done.

What does it mean to be "Powered by LPI"?

A new benefit for CompTIA Linux+ candidates is that they may choose, at the time they take the exams, to have their exam record forwarded to the Linux Professional Institute. Certification in CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI, attained by passing CompTIA exams LX0-101 and LX0-102, enables candidates to become certified in LPIC-1 as well, enabling further participation in the LPI program if the candidate chooses. CompTIA maintains candidate-confidential records for all exam takers, for their own access and use for employment or educational purposes. Any choice to forward an exam record to LPI is made only by the candidate.

How does the Linux+ Certification compare to other Linux Certifications?

Linux+ certification provides a vendor-neutral stepping stone toward vendor-specific training, such as Oracle Certified Associate and Novell SUSE Linux programs. The Linux+ certification exams are the same as the LPIC-1 exams and are essential for those looking to develop their education and career path in Linux administration. Other certification programs are focused on specific versions of Linux products, and not all of the options and tools to which a Linux administrator might be exposed.
