New Linux+ training from SkillsTrain

October 12, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
To meet the growing popularity of enterprise-ready platforms and the need for trained Linux professionals, SkillsTrain, Europe’s largest computer training organisation, has launched a new Linux distance learning course, `Linux+’, encompassing the CompTIA Linux+ examination.

Because of its flexible nature, students can study the course around existing work commitments to achieve a commercially desirable skill-validation qualification. By enhancing their accredited knowledge of Linux they’re also giving themselves the edge in the IT jobs market.

SkillsTrain Principal Myra Smallman said “For some the qualification is a validation of existing skill, while others can study and develop to achieve it, working from a relatively low knowledge or experience base.

In an industry which lacks an overall accreditation body, the CompTIA Linux+ is a widely recognised certification, which validates both skill and competency in Linux, which is why it was chosen as the accreditation standard for the new SkillsTrain Linux+ course”.

The CompTIA Linux+ credential certifies the user has fundamental management experience of Linux systems from the command line, can demonstrate knowledge of user administration, understand file permissions, software configurations, and management of Linux-based clients, server systems and security.
