Linux Certification Training

Learn the exciting operating system Linux. Based on UNIX, this operating system for PC computers is growing quickly. Now available by many computer manufacturers as the operating system for PC Computers. There are several versions of this operating system RedHat, Caldera and Mandrake just to name a few. Although they are all based on Linux, their graphic interface varies. Certification is available for RedHat and Caldera. Many business and Internet providers have switched to Linux due to its cost (free), reliability and requirement of computer resources.

Linux can be run alone or added to your present operating system (Re-partitioning required). Training in this operating system is perfect for anyone ranging from a background in Windows NT to a Novice interested in learning about networking.
