The three courses Linux Fundamentals, Basic System Administration and Advanced System Administration are designed to meet the growing demand for Linux skills and certification as more organisations in the region move to open-source solutions and the use of Linux-based software. The training will be conducted using Red Hat Linux.
After completing the system administration courses, trainees will be well-equipped to sit the Red Hat Certified Engineer examination and gain a recognised professional qualification for Red Hat Linux.
The two-day course is for people who want to use Linux as an alternative operating system within their enterprise. It covers the technical features of Linux, its use and basic Linux commands, as well as system set-up and configuration.
The four-day course is for those who are already familiar with the basics of Linux who want to administer Linux systems in an enterprise or small-office home-office environment. Participants will learn about Linux installation on a SPARC or Intel system, how to set up and configure file and printer resource sharing with Linux, add or modify user accounts, as well as configure network services on a Linux workstation.
The course teaches core skills to experienced Linux system administrators and Linux network administrators in a five-day programme. It focuses on integrating Linux workstations and servers in a heterogeneous environment, security, server optimization and enabling system services.
The new Linux courses are part of an initiative by Donovan Systems to familiarise end users, IT professionals, software developers and students with the Linux environment. Donovan Systems has also set up special Linux labs in tertiary institutions in Asia and also supports a Web portal called www.penguin64.org where developers can exchange information and download software resources.
