CompTIA Linux+ (XK0-004) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Network administrators, systems administrators, web developers, cloud engineers and cybersecurity engineers should all take this Linux+ course, as should anyone who wants to eventually hold one of those positions. If you could reasonably need Linux to do your current or future job, you want to take this course that prepares you for every part of the OS.
Yes, this course is specially designed for XK0-004, the certification exam for CompTIA's Linux+ certification. However, the XK0-004 will be replaced by XK0-005 by January 2023. But it's not as though knowledge of Linux will ever go out of style – this course is an excellent way to learn security, management and automation in Linux.
You'll want to get the Linux+ after you take this course. When it comes to Linux-related certifications, there aren't very many and arguably none are better than CompTIA's. Even if it's after January 2023 by the time you take this Linux+ course, you'll have very little additional prep work to be prepared for the XK0-005.
Realistically, you should only take this course if you might run into Linux some day and need to know how to use it. But, considering that Linux runs the vast majority of data centers in the world, is the kernel that drives almost all mobile phones, and is the preferred OS for tons of machines, that's basically anyone with any IT job.
