RH135 - Red Hat System Administration II with RHCSA® Exam


Duration: 5 days

Red Hat® System Administration II with RHCSA® Exam - Designed for IT professionals working to become full-time enterprise Linux system administrators, this course is a follow up to System Administration I, includes the RHCSA exam, and continues to utilize today's best-of-breed, contemporary teaching methodology. You will be actively engaged in task-focused activities, lab-based knowledge checks, and facilitative discussions to ensure maximum skills transfer and retention.

Building on the foundation of command line skills covered in System Administration I, you will dive deeper into Red Hat Enterprise Linux, adding to your "tool kit" of administration skills. By the end of this course, you will be able to administer and troubleshoot file systems and partitioning, logical volume management, access control, and package management. You will take the RHCSA exam on the final day of class.

Note: Trainocate and Red Hat do not guarantee that anyone who takes one or all of the courses in the Red Hat certification program will pass a Red Hat exam. On-the-job experience, in combination with high-quality training, is the best way to build skills and prepare for a Red Hat exam. The exam itself is a hands-on learning experience, and many of those who do not pass on the first try come away with knowledge of what they need to work on to pass the exam on a re-take.
