Because of significant cost savings, a growing number of companies are choosing to adopt Linux as an alternative to Microsoft products.
The Red Hat Linux Specialized Studies Program will give you the foundation needed to support and use the Linux operating system. Students who complete this program will be equipped to set up and administer Linux on a network, host websites on a Linux platform, as well as configure a network of Linux computers and peripheral devices.
With the growth of Linux in the corporate environment, having these skills is a must for any IT professional.
Who Should Enroll
This program provides detailed instructions on the installation, maintenance, and usage of Red Hat Linux. The primary audience consists of professionals who already have some experience with computer operating systems (such as Microsoft Windows) and may even have substantial experience as network administrators for non-Linux systems. These people understand fundamental operating system and networking concepts but need to learn how those concepts appear in a Linux environment.
In addition, the program will also benefit those who have little or no previous experience but are especially talented in working with computers and other technology. Such people may need to engage in substantial self-study outside of class or elicit extra assistance from their instructors. (After completing the first course, all students should be ready for the second and third courses.)
