In this entry-level Linux skills training, Shawn Powers covers the troubleshooting Linux objectives of the CompTIA Linux+ certification.
Even though Linux is stable and reliable, things happen. Network troubleshooting is tough because so many things could have gone wrong, and you need a good handle on networking principles to track down a problem. However, there are some good tools and best practices that will help you even if you’re new to IT, and this Linux troubleshooting course covers them.
Once you're done with this Linux training, you'll know how to analyze network packets by using tools like Wireshark, and have a solid understanding of the command-line tools you can use to troubleshoot network connectivity and DNS-related issues.
For anyone who manages open-source platforms training, this Linux training can be used for XK0-004 exam prep, on-boarding new systems administrators, as a Linux reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.

Who Should Take Linux Troubleshooting Training?
This Linux Troubleshooting training is considered administrator-level Linux training, which means it was designed for systems administrators. This troubleshooting Linux 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 Linux skills.
New or aspiring systems administrators. Most system administrators will end up spending a lot of their careers trying to identify and resolve problems inside a Linux network. For a new system administrator, this training can prepare you to follow all the proper steps for diagnosing and resolving Linux network issues. Rather than troubleshoot on the fly, learn to diagnose like a certified pro -- the training includes information derived directly from the industry’s standard: the XK0-004 exam.
Experienced systems administrators. Every system administrator knows the difficulty of troubleshooting a problem system. What only a few system administrators know is every possible approach that could be taken to troubleshoot any given problem. With this training, you not only learn the industry-standard processes for troubleshooting, but you prepare yourself to eventually take the XK0-004 exam and get your CompTIA Linux+ certification.
