“Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it.” (Alan Moore, V for Vendetta)

Ironically, Linux+, an open-source software, has not been so open-source in its training. Students have spent thousands to learn the operating system, but those days are over. Linux is a very well liked platform for those who use it, and an understanding of how to manage, implement and maintain it, can be very valuable to an IT career. In fact, if you are growing a Cyber Security career, this class is valuable as well, as you will be expected to have a fundamental working knowledge in many penetration testing tactics. Gain a fundamental knowledge and learn the skills that are required of junior Linux administrators by taking our FREE CompTIA Linux+ online training course.
