Kenny first encountered Solaris UNIX while I was in the military, and found out about Linux through the grapevine. He has worked with Linux in local government, fortune 500 companies, educational institutions, and by providing training. I have received Linux certifications from LPI, CompTIA, and Red Hat. Kenny has been working with Linux for nearly two decades and is passionate about sharing his knowledge with others about the system, and strives to learn more about the operating system every day.

Details

NOTE: This course is launched right now (April 2019) in EARLY ACCESS PREVIEW - we will complete the course over the coming weeks as the final version of the exam is available.


CompTIA introduced their new Linux+ certification in April of 2019 and this Linux Academy course will help you prepare to succeed in taking it!


Intended for the IT Professional who uses Linux every day in their personal and professional lives. You only have to pass a single exam now, but keep in mind you will no longer get the LPI 2-for-1 certification as a result.


Designed to cover job-focused Linux foundational skills that are in demand, this certification preparation course will prepare you for the exam on this new certification. The exam covers tasks that are associated with all major distributions of Linux and helps set the foundation for later, more advanced vendor or distribution specific knowledge.


The original CompTIA Linux+ by LPI exam will be available concurrent with this new exam until October of 2019.
