Linux Training Courses

According to Top 500 Supercomputer, Linux powers 97 percent of the world's super computers, billions of Android devices and millions of other transactions worldwide. The importance of this open source operating system is hard to understate.

Linux

Students can learn Linux in a variety of ways, but training and certification courses generally cover the following core concepts:

  • Application Development
  • Enterprise Automation
  • Network Management
  • Open Source Development

Linux course structure

The subjects covered in individual courses can vary depending on the type of Linux training and its specific structure. However, the following subjects are generally representative of the typical curriculum for entry-level Linux courses:

  • Linux device drivers: Learn what Linux device drivers are and how to apply them to Linux systems for hardware detection.
  • Linux for Android: Learn how to apply the Linux operating system to android devices and the benefits for doing so.
  • Linux and GIT: Learn the fundamentals of the GIT version control system and what role it plays in computer systems operations.
  • Linux and security: How to safely navigate your Linux environment and what precautions should be considered when using the operating system.
  • System administration: Discover the tools offered in Linux environments, how they benefit you and how to use them.

Types of online courses

Linux Foundation and online learning platforms

There's a wide range of providers offering Linux training in all shapes and sizes, although the majority of classes offered are currently online. For example, the Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization that manages the development of the Linux kernel, offers short-term courses covering the various intricacies of the operating system. Courses are not free, and are typically held at a specific site.

The Linux Foundation, however, does offer free Linux training courses through online learning platform edX. The free Linux training courses will typically result in a certificate of achievement, though a verified certificate of achievement can be purchased for a fee. Online education provider Udemy also offers low-cost Linux training courses.

College and university courses

In addition to these options, students can find Linux training opportunities at traditional college campuses as well. These courses are typically offered within a school's IT or computer engineering departments.
