As one of the most successful open source collaborations, Linux has evolved into the most reliable operating system on the planet. This is the course for aspiring, career-minded Linux system administrators who want to advance their skills and prepare for the LPIC-1 Certification. NDG Linux I provides hands-on labs and activities, ensuring that you grow your expertise. Expect to perform maintenance tasks on the command line, install and configure a computer running Linux, and configure basic networking, using virtual machines running Linux. No prerequisite knowledge required, however the concepts in this course are covered at a more challenging pace than in NDG Linux Essentials. This is the first course in a 2-course series together with NDG Linux II, offered in partnership with Michigan Information Technology Training.
