The “start from scratch” Linux course

Ever considered a career in Linux? Or, stuck in a dead-end job and exploring options for a career change? NDG Linux Unhatched allows students to wade into the shallow end of Linux, the back-end operating system used by global titans such as Facebook, Google, Microsoft, NASA, Tesla, Amazon and more.

Graduates walk away with a clear understanding of whether Linux is for them or not, without having to commit to more than 8 total hours of self-paced learning. To ensure you don’t get stuck, you’ll be guided step-by-step through a series of hands-on virtual machine activities. The course aligns well with the Linux exam objectives found on the CompTIA A+ Certification. After this course, we suggest taking either NDG Linux Essentials or NDG Linux I.

What will you learn in this course?

•Learn basic open source concepts.

•Understand how Linux is used and the basics of the command line.

•Apply skills using Linux virtual machine with step-by-step and hands-on lab activities.

•Build foundational knowledge for progressively mastering Linux commands.

•Connect with the global Cisco Networking Academy community.

Career Pathway

The expansion of open source is redefining IT job roles by requiring Linux skills. Knowledge of Linux is an important differentiator for business and IT professionals interested in big data, cloud computing, cybersecurity, Internet of Things, information systems, networking, programming, software development, and more. Career pathways include: network engineer, software developer, and Linux administrator.
