LPI 102. Linux administration and networking

Categories: Linux administration, Linux (LPI), Networking

The fundamental topics in Linux and network administration: shell script language Bash, users and permissions, processes, boot scripts, programs, basic server services, protocols – including TCP/IP, addressing and routing.
Training is authorized by Linux Professional Institute

This training is a second part of our LPIC-1 certification path – a followup to the LPI-101 training. Learning material covered by these two training courses allows to pass the LPIC-1 exam.

After LPI 102, we suggest:

  • (if you took the LPI 101 course or mastered the material on your own) taking the LPIC-1 exam,
  • continuing learning on LPIC-2 level – through the complete Advanced Linux Administrator course, or LPI 201 and LPI 202 training courses.

To persons interested in acquiring the complete knowledge required by LPIC-1 exam from the very basics, we recommend our long course Linux Administrator. It not only covers all the material covered by LPI 101 and LPI 102 training courses – it has also a module on selected network services, and costs less than the two training courses combined.

This training is equivalent to days 5-8 of the Linux Administrator course.
