This course has been developed by Peter van der Weerd and Pim Leemans; two Dutch Linux / UNIX contractors/instructors with a combined experience of over 45 years in teaching- and working with- Linux in over 25 countries.
The course has been developed for anyone who wants to broaden their Linux skills; from novice to intermediate students.
It follows the LPIC 1 101-500 exam requirements, but is very suitable for preparing for other Linux fundamentals exams as well. And of course you can take the course without having to enrol for an exam!
The course material is NOT Linux biased so can be used to study Debian / Ubuntu Linux, as well as Red Hat / CentOS or Suse.
The credo that the course developers uphold during the course is “learning by example“. Peter has already successfully applied this to his video series on NetApp as well.
The course guides you from novice to intermediate administrator on any Linux platform. And if you do find that you have questions that you would like to ask, then you can contact the developers directly.
Using VirtualBox as the Hypervisor solution for the course, implies that the Linux installation does not have to interfere with your existing Windows / Mac OsX installation. And of course both VirtualBox as well as the Linux distributions used are free of charge!
