On this CompTIA Linux+ course, you’ll learn how to manage, operate, configure and maintain systems and hardware within a Linux environment.

In just 6 days, you’ll build knowledge on software operations, managing users, groups and services, as well as understanding Linux boot process concepts and kernel modules. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Troubleshoot and diagnose Linux issues, including system properties, user issues, application and hardware issues
  • Apply security topics like as user/group permissions and ownership, access and authentication methods, Linux firewalls, and file backup, restoration and compression
  • Demonstrate automation and scripting skills like BASH scripts and version control using GIT

At the end of your course, you’ll sit exam XK0-004 and achieve the CompTIA Linux+ certification. You’ll learn from certified CompTIA instructors, as Firebrand is an Authorised Partner of CompTIA.

You’ll also get access to official courseware including the Official CompTIA Linux+ Student Guide (Exam XK0-004) eBook and the Official CompTIA Linux+ Labs (Exam XK0-004) LogicalLAB.

Audience:


This course is ideal if you’re aspiring to or are practicing any of the following roles:

  • Linux administrator
  • Network administrator
  • Web administrator
  • Technical support specialist
  • Systems administrator

CompTIA Linux+ is the only job-focused Linux certification covering the latest foundational skills demanded by employers.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. 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
  6. You’ll learn 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
  7. You’ll be studying 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 111290 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

Benefits

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.
