This seven day course is intended for students interested in being Linux administrators and wishing to certify their skills by obtaining the Novell Certified Linux Professional 11 qualification.

The course and exam practicum is based upon the Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 distribution.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of Linux including working with Linux shells
  • Administer users, groups and file permissions

Seven reasons why you should sit your Linux Professional course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Linux Professional certified in just 7 days. With us, you’ll be Linux Professional trained in record time
  2. Our Linux Professional course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Linux Professional first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more Linux Professional. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn Linux Professional faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying Linux Professional with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 114,146 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study Linux Professional courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging


Reasons for the Novell Certified Linux Professional 11 qualification include career advancement, personal improvement, skills enhancement, and higher salaries.

With Firebrand Training, you will:

  • Learn all of the fundamentals
  • Hone your implementation and troubleshooting skills
  • Improve your creative thinking skills
  • Obtain your certification

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
