Linux Academy provides interactive step by step video courses that will take a newbie to professional over the next several months.  The Academy starts out with an introduction to the Linux server and builds from there.  The Linux Academy allows you to interact with a real Linux lab environment, giving you the ability to play, learn, and follow lessons on actual Linux servers. You could boot up your server, start following a lesson (or just play for fun) and delete the file system.  It takes nothing more than two clicks to delete your server and re-build one from scratch.  As a result, anyone in the IT field can learn to manage or interact with Linux servers.
