The Linux System Administrator bootcamp provides students with the knowledge to become a UNIX power user as well as a solid understanding of fundamental system administration. Students will begin by learning crucial commands necessary in any Linux environment, and will learn about file system structure and navigation, process creation and management. Students will also have comprehensive practice writing Korn and Bash shell scripts. Students will be introduced to regular expressions and the power tools that use them including grep, sed, and awk. Linux Administration topics include installing, configuring and maintaining an Enterprise Linux system, as well as planning and implementing backup strategies and configuring and deploying network services.
Upon completion of this program, students will have developed an appropriate knowledge base and hands-on experience to pursue a Linux Essentials certification from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) after program completion. The student will have learned Unix environment fundamentals as well as shell scripting skills employed by power users. Additionally, the student will learn more advanced skills that are related to Linux system administration, and will gain a solid foundation of knowledge that would be helpful for the Linux Administrator certification from LPI. Regardless of whether or not students wish to pursue certification after program completion, students will have a skillset that enables them to perform support roles related to Unix/Linux, as well as entry-level Unix/Linux system administrator roles.
Career Opportunities as a Linux System Administrator
After completing the Linux System Admin bootcamp, students will be able to pursue support positions related to UNIX/Linux environments as well as entry level Linux system admin roles, but what will it be like? Most likely you’ll be working within a larger team to solve large and complex problems. You’ll be required to learn new software, utilize best practice, troubleshoot issues, and apply software updates. An entry-level Linux System Administrator can expect to earn between $49,000 - $68,000, and with skill progression can earn more as their career progresses.
