Linux Training Courses for Certification LPI and CompTIA Linux+ - Live Boot Camp Classes, Online and CD
Netwind Learning center offers an extensive line of Linux training courses to fill everyone's training needs. Linux is a free Unix-type operating system originally created by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of
developers around the world. Developed under the GNU General Public License , the source code for Linux is freely available to everyone. Typically all the underlying source code can be used, freely modified,
and redistributed, both commercially and non-commercially, by anyone under licenses such as the GNU General Public License.
In 1991, in Helsinki, Linus Torvalds began a project
that later became the Linux kernel. It was initially a terminal emulator, which Torvalds used to access the large UNIX servers of the university. He wrote the program specifically for the hardware he was using
and independent of an operating system because he wanted to use the functions of his new PC with an 80386 processor. Development was done on MINIX using the GNU C compiler, which is still the main
choice for compiling Linux today (although the code can be built with other compilers, such as the Intel C Compiler).
Despite being open-source, their are companies who sell Linux.. These companies, most of which are also members of the Open Source Development Lab, invest substantial resources into the
advancement and development of Linux, in order to make it suited for various application areas. This includes hardware donations for driver
developers, cash donations for people who develop the operating system software, and the employment of programmers at the company. Some examples are IBM and HP, which use
Linux on their own servers, and Red Hat, which maintains its own distribution.
There are many version of the operating system that can be found today
just to name a few. All of the above are based on different kernels.
This training course is for Professionals who want to certify their technical knowledge in basic installation, operation and troubleshooting for Linux operating systems should consider this
certification. The skills and knowledge measured by this examination were developed with global input to assure accuracy, validity and reliability. Earning the CompTIA Linux+
designation means that the candidate can explain fundamental open source resources/licenses, demonstrate knowledge of user administration, understand file permissions/software
configurations and manage local storage devices and network protocols.
LPI Linux Certification Training
A widely-recognized Linux certification ensures that IT professionals have a means of demonstrating their Linux skills to potential employers while assuring customers that they are receiving knowledgable support.
The easiest way to gain corporate, governmental, and institutional support and usage of Linux is to ensure that there is a recognized support system in place. This includes professionally
accredited support services and an industry recognized skills standard
