Please Note: The Linux+ Certification Course is designed as a theory-based course but does contain all relevant information on how to complete practical exercises.

The course books are Officially endorsed course materials that cover all of the exam objectives and implements important instructional design principles.

The Linux+ Certification course consists of the following items:

  • Linux+ Certification Course Book:

The course book covers the following units:

Unit 1: Performing Basic Linux Tasks

In this lesson, you will identify important elements in the history and development of Linux and perform basic Linux tasks.

Unit 2: Managing User & Group Accounts

Before users can take advantage of the operating system, user accounts need to be created. You will also have to create group accounts to manage those users. In this lesson, you will manage user and group accounts.

Unit 3: Managing Partitions and the Linux Filesystem

In this lesson, you will learn how to create partitions on the hard disk and navigate, manage, and maintain the Linux filesystem.

Unit 4: Managing Files in Linux

In the previous lesson, you managed the Linux filesystem. Now it is time to learn how to manipulate files and directories within Linux. In this lesson, you will manage various types of Linux files.

Unit 5: Managing Linux Permissions and Ownership

While working with Linux files, you may need to modify the permissions and ownership of these files. In this lesson, you will learn to work with Linux permissions and ownership.

Unit 6: Printing Files

In the last lesson, you worked with files in Linux. Now, you may want to print those files containing essential information. In this lesson, you will learn how to work with printer hardware and software.

Unit 7: Managing Packages

You explored the basic Linux environment, worked with files, and printed them. Now, you are ready to install packages to facilitate the distribution and installation of software. In this lesson, you will cover how to manage packages in Linux.

Unit 8: Managing Kernal Services

The kernel, being the core of the Linux operating system, handles various crucial functions such as system initialization, process scheduling, and memory and hardware management. In this lesson, you will explore the role of kernel services and kernel service configuration.

Unit 9: Working with the Bash Shell and Shell Scripts

In addition to kernel, the Linux shell is an important constituent of the operating system, and it is essential to familiarize yourself with the Bash shell and perform basic operations in it. In this lesson, you will work with the Bash shell and write shell scripts.

Unit 10: Managing Jobs and Processes

In your routine management of a Linux system, there might also be instances when various utilities need to be run simultaneously on a system, not necessarily via shell scripts. In this lesson, you will manage jobs and processes.

Unit 11: Managing System Services

Now that you examined the way processes operate in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux environment, you can learn how to manage the services that run on a Linux system. These include basic services and other services that are required by the kernel to process requests.
