Linux Certificate

The Linux operating system provides powerful open source solutions which offer increased stability, higher levels of security, and lower cost than commercial operating systems. Linux is particularly attractive to small-and mid-sized businesses, and interest in Linux is high and growing rapidly.

There are a variety of applications available for Linux today and many of these open source solutions have been ported to run within a Windows environment as well. Many of these programs are gaining a large foothold in the business community, and the demand for skilled professionals in this area is high. The Linux Certificate will provide students with the fundamental knowledge needed to work in a Linux/Open Source environment. Students enrolled in this Certificate program must have a solid background in computer use and significant experience with at least the Windows or Mac OS X operating system.

Program Curriculum

Note: The LINUX Certificate is a rigorous program. Students are expected to spend additional time beyond the minimum to complete requirements and achieve success. Students are also expected to have college level reading, writing and math skills prior to enrollment.
