This course highlights more advanced linux concepts and provides study material for the LPI certification exam 102.
One of the hottest jobs in Information Technology today is Linux Administration. As the Cloud vendors continue to grow, the need for talented and knowledgeable Linux Administrators will continue to grow with them. While you may believe that it can take years to acquire the expertise necessary to succeed in this field, you might be surprised.
Industry certification is the first step to demonstrating your ability to succeed in a demanding and fast paced technical environment. The Linux Professional Institute has released what has become the global standard in Linux Certification. These certifications (called LPIC – Linux Professional Institute Certifications) are important to any company looking to hire experienced and capable Linux professionals.
Linux Academy Courses
Our courses are taught by LPIC certified instructors who have and continue to work in the field in various capacities using and supporting Linux systems. In particular, this course provides interactive, step-by-step videos that will help you prepare for the LPIC-1 102 Exam. This exam is important to help you prepare for the Linux+ and LPIC level 1 certification and this course provides all the materials you need to pass the exam.
Not only will these videos prepare you for the LPIC exam 102 but they will also teach you how to run your own Linux servers (including course notes, quizzes on the covered material and hands on labs to try out what you learn). The Linux Academy lessons include all topics that are covered in the LPIC-1 102 exam such as from system devices and kernel management to shell scripting and security.
By the time you complete this series of videos, you will have the knowledge you need to manage and secure your entire Linux server environment.

As the Gold Standard for Linux Certifications, the LPIC exams can be taken at thousands of test centers around the world. Exam fees are nominal (but do sometimes differ between testing centers) and can qualify as a tax break for your next job search.
