'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

If you're going into the IT workforce, there's only so much on-the-job training you can expect. You simply need to know the right skills before you can even reach the interview process. For many server admin positions, that means gaining Linux proficiency. Luckily, this open-source OS is popular for a reason. Anybody can learn Linux with the proper training, and that's exactly what you'll get with the Complete 2022 Linux Certification Training Bundle.

This online education package collects 12 essential courses on Linux from the tech gurus at iCollege. Their ITProTV training courses are engaging but refreshingly free of fluff. They're full of curricula that will teach you how to use Linux in real-world IT situations for a variety of network setups.

No matter what your level of experience with Linux, there's an entry point for you here. Newcomers can start with a beginner's course that teaches the basic user interface, then move on to classes that cover shell scripting and server-side troubleshooting. You'll find courses on everything from security best practices to the latest RHEL operating system.

Best of all, you'll be able to use the advanced tutorials to train for your Linux certifications, a must if you want to work for the larger tech firms. The bundle has courses that double as study guides for the LPIC-1 and LPIC-2 exams, which can open doors to jobs as a Linux engineer or admin.

The Complete 2022 Linux Certification Training Bundle, featuring more than 110 hours of education, is price-dropped to $59 during our Back to Education event. On top of that, if you buy before August 24, $0.50 of your purchase will be donated to the school or charity, which you can vote for in an email you'll receive after purchasing. We'll announce the organization that won the vote once the event concludes, so stay tuned!
