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.

As with the LPI Linux 101 course, the student learns by performing hands-on work, and there are LPI exam practice questions throughout the course to ensure that the student has all the tools needed to achieve LPI certification.

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

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 which now powers the majority of the world's web servers and has become a central component of modern cloud computing environments.

In fact, recent reports indicate that Linux growth is far outpacing growth of Windows and other operating systems, with Linux servers now powering upwards of 75% of all cloud deployments, as well as the lion's share of new app development.

Reports from online job-search sites and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics further confirm that Linux skills are in high demand with workers earning very competitive salaries in such fields as systems and database administration, networking, security, web master, even graphics and animation.
