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.

When I started my training at Bluepoint, I had no knowledge about Linux except that it is an Open Source technology as I have read it from books and from the Internet. When I was with my previous job as a technical support rep at a call center, I got interested with this revolutonary OS even though we were not supporting it. I got curious and interested with it. I read books and browsed the Internet just to gain knowledge and grasp of it. I enrolled at Bluepoint Institute's Linux Express course because I felt I
needed it for the job/career I really wanted.

I enjoyed the training. I learned a lot of things and I got the chance to meet fine people like Ma'am Kim, Sir Engels and the alumni. After my training at Bluepoint, I found a new job that I really wanted to master. My line of work now is in network engineering. Though the company doesn't support Open Source technologies like Linux, we're slowly incorporating it in our network solutions for our clients and I guess...I started it.

Training for a month at Bluepoint and attending various seminars they conduct have helped me gain considerable knowledge in Linux systems, particularly Red Hat, and important breakthroughs in the IT world.

Instructors Joey Gaddi and Engels Antonio are experts in this field and they can relate the topics to real world scenarios effectively. The skills I got from Bluepoint also helped me become a better systems engineer and consultant since I can now recommend an alternative system to customers aside from Microsoft and Unix depending on their requirements, plans, and budget. Bluepoint's contribution to the Open Source community is really unforgettable.

Bluepoint has already made a name when it comes to Linux education. I was able to prove this when I had my Linux Express training. The instructor Kim Murga is very good. Theoretical discussions coupled with hands-on exercises really make a good combination for learning. I'd also like to commend the people behind Bluepoint, especially Engels and Magie Antonio, for their passion and dedication to keep Bluepoint Foundation true to its mission and vision. For those who want to learn Linux, Bluepoint is the place!
