Who Should Take CentOS Training?
This CentOS training is based on administrator-level Linux training, which means it was designed for systems administrators. This fundamental CentOS commands and operations skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with open source platforms and experienced systems administrators looking to validate their CentOS skills.
New or aspiring systems administrators. New systems administrators looking to master a specialty in the career field may consider CentOS but be scared off by how much there is to learn about it, Linux and the rest of the Red Hat products. With this training, you’ll understand what makes CentOS unique and why — between its supportive community and customizability — it could be one of the best investments of your career as a system administrator.
Experienced systems administrators. If you’re a system administrator with years of experience, you could be forgiven for not being familiar with CentOS. Even system administrators with years of experience exclusively with Linux haven’t ever used the Linux distribution — despite its popularity! This training will provide you with an overview and an in-depth understanding of the commands and operations of CentOS.
