This courseware builds on your existing experience with systems operations and administration to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to configure, manage, operate, and troubleshoot a Linux environment by using security best practices, scripting, and automation computing models.

A typical student in this course should have at least nine months of hands-on Linux experience and at least one and a half years of IT experience in other computing environments. The target student should wish to expand their skill set to support their career in Linux system administration and operation.  This course is also designed for students who are seeking the CompTIA Linux+ certification and who want to prepare for Exam XK0-004.
