2-course program: $1,800
The Linux System Administrator certificate program provides a thorough introduction to UNIX and Linux fundamentals as well as essential administration skills required to maintain a Linux system in a networked business environment. Students will also learn to create Bash and Korn shell scripts and receive solid grounding in the X Window System. You will learn commands, file system structure and navigation, process creation and management as well as writing Korn and Bash shell scripts. You’ll be introduced to regular expressions and the power tools that use them including grep, sed, and awk. Admin topics include installing, configuring and maintaining an Enterprise Linux system, as well as planning and implementing backup strategies and configuring and deploying network services.
Online learning gives you the flexibility to plan study time around the rest of your day. Our programs combine video, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Labs are performed via remote access to a dedicated lab machine (unless a student requests to utilize their own equipment). Our unique commitment to student success includes a personal instructor to assure that your courses are completed on time and with full understanding of both the lecture content and the lab exercises.
