Training Program


“LINUX Essentials”

(Level 1)

DESCRIPTION

The course aims are to give students a good understanding of the Linux operating system. The program includes discussion of the most important aspects of Linux, such as the kernel, processes, file systems, shells, etc. The course is designed to provide the essential skills needed to be proficient at the Linux command line and focuses on the fundamental concepts and tools which make Linux so powerful. The course will cover the basic Linux commands and will explain the differences between working with Linux and working with other popular operating systems. It will show that using Linux opens up a whole new world of computing. This means that a Linux user is not just a passive subject reacting to what the operating system allows him/her to do but he/she is an active "developer" with complete control over the operating system.After completing the first level, students with positive testing will have the opportunity of going to the next Level.
