Red Hat Enterprise Linux Survival Skills Series

Linux Training Overview

This series teaches the basic working environment of an RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) system. It introduces commonly required operations that can be performed by entering commands interactively in a command terminal, along with functions available in the Desktop Environments (KDE and Gnome).

The courses are specifically for RHEL on any supported hardware platform.

Linux Training Prerequisites

This course is considered to be an advanced RHEL course. Attendance at the RHEL Absolute System Essentials class is mandatory, or the participant must have prior 'user level' experience with RHEL.

Linux Training Course duration

This course normally requires two (2) days, approximately 50% lecture and 50% lab time.

Linux Training Course Objectives

Each participant will be able to use Bash Shell techniques and commands to maintain collections of files, create files using interactive editor utilities, create and execute basic command procedures, communicate with other users, and tailor the interactive environment to meet their needs. Day-to-day system administration functions are also shown by commands and graphical interfaces.

Linux Training Course Sessions Overview

The sessions are oriented in a layered approach: skills and techniques shown build upon the previous set. The Administration session is two (2) days in length, comprising a set of operations that have been shown to be absolutely essential to the successful installation, starting,stopping, and operating a Red Hat Linux system.
