Course ID: 
n/a

This course gives an introduction to both Unix and Linux, versatile and stable operating systems used in business and on many of the servers on the internet. The course is suitable as preparation for the CompTIA Linux+/LPIC-1, Linux Professional Institute examinations.
We concentrate on the command line rather than the graphical interface with the most commonly used commands and utilities described in detail as are the use of piping, redirection, wildcards and the vi editor.
These systems are easy to learn and use and we expect this course to be a fun and interesting way to master them.
Although based on CentOS (Red Hat) Linux the commands and principles learnt may be applied to all other versions of Linux, including Ububtu and SUSE and to all versions of Unix including Solaris, AIX and HP-UX.
