Are you looking for a way to jumpstart your IT career or move mid-career to managing Linux systems? The 2015 Linux Jobs Report showed that certification is a great way to do this, with 44 percent of managers reporting they are more likely to hire someone with a certification. That’s one reason we created our Linux Foundation Certified SysAdmin program. If you have Linux skills, show it off with a convenient, neutral exam that has the backing of the Linux Foundation.
This year for the first time we’ll host an in person SysAdmin certification prep workshop the day prior to LinuxCon in Seattle, Sunday, August 16, 2015. It’s only $69 which is a huge bargain on its own, but as an added bonus includes $100 towards your certification exam. And if you’re attending LinuxCon, CloudOpen and ContainerCon, the cost of the workshop is included in your registration.
Taught by Dr. Jerry Cooperstein, The Linux Foundation’s Training Program Director who developed the Essentials of System Administration course, this workshop will provide the opportunity to dig into topics relevant to taking the exam and to get your questions answered live. Jerry is an amazing Linux talent and teacher so this is a wonderful chance to learn from the best at a very small price.
Since the launch of the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator exam last August, we have worked to make exam prep materials and courses as accessible as possible. This workshop builds on those initiatives, such as the release of our certification exam prep guide, the bundled Essentials of System Administration course and certification exam offered at an affordable price point, and allowing those who do not pass the exam on their first attempt to retake it for free. But this is a chance to visit Seattle, meet many of us in person and learn a lot about Linux, containers and the newest cloud technologies.
We believe this is a great opportunity to take the first step toward an outstanding career in Linux. Register today, and we’ll see you in Seattle!
