LPI Linux 102
Course Description

This course builds on the skills gained in the LPI Linux 101 course, teaching students some of the most essential Linux administration skills and preparing them to pass the LPI Exam 102 leading to LPIC-1 certification. Topics covered here include user account management, shell scripting, databases, TCP/IP network administration, and security.

About the Field

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) has the fastest growing Linux certification program in the world. It is a vendor-neutral and community-driven program that is well respected throughout the IT industry. In order to achieve junior level LPI certification (LPIC-1), a candidate must pass two exams. This course prepares students for the second of these exams, known as LPI Exam 102.

More information about the LPI program can be found on their web site at www.lpi.org


VIASINC's Linux curriculum has been officially recognized by the Linux Professional Institute as part of their LPI Approved Training Materials ( LPI-ATM) program. This means that the courses have successfully passed stringent quality assurance testing and provide complete coverage of all of the certification exam objectives. You can rest assured that the skills and knowledge gained here will directly translate into earning a professional Linux IT certification.

Career Implications

Initially developed over 30 years ago, Unix stands as the oldest operating system still in continuous use. Linux is a successor to Unix that now powers the majority of the world's web servers, and looks poised to continue on its track of rapid growth now that it has become a central component of modern cloud computing environments.

According to a recent report from International Data Corporation (IDC), Linux momentum is building even faster than previously thought, with Linux-related annual revenues now surpassing the USD $35 billion mark. Reports from Internet job-search sites such as Dice.com further confirm that Linux skills are in high demand, with workers earning very competitive salaries.

Linux skills can also be directly applied towards other Unix-based operating systems like Mac OS X, and can lay the groundwork for lucrative careers in such fields as systems and database administration, networking, security, web master, graphics and animation, and many others.
