Linux® is an Open Source, full-featured, powerful and robust UNIX-like operating system based on the initial work of Linus Torvalds from the University of Helsinki in Finland. Since 1991, his work was extended and ported to many platforms by a worldwide community of software developers. Today it runs everything from embedded systems to nuclear submarines. Linux also powers Wall Street, the London Stock Exchange, the CERN supercollider, and NASA's supercomputers.


Linux Express® is designed to rapidly train students from the basic concepts of Linux to advanced system administration. Participants will be able to install, configure, optimize and secure Linux and its kernel. This course helps prepare students for Linux Professional Institute (LPIC) and Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certifications.

Linux Express is for people who want to get their feet wet, and for beginners planning to take up Total Linux®, the most respected and highly recognized Linux training program in the Philippines.
