Linux for Cloud Technicians Essentials Provides Essential Training for New and Accomplished Linux IT Professionals and Helps Prepare for LFCT Certification


The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, has announced a new online training course, Linux for Cloud Technicians Essentials (LFS203). The course is designed to expand IT professionals’ abilities to administer systems in a cloud environment as well as prepare participants to take the Linux Foundation Certified Cloud Technician (LFCT) exam.

Linux for Cloud Technician Essentials (LFS203) has been created for individuals who want to expand their knowledge of Linux system configuration, administration and command line environment, whether working in a cloud environment now or in the future. The course provides essential knowledge for configuring and managing Linux systems and containers, expanding on the standard administration knowledge and incorporating critical tasks and operations commonly used in cloud environments. 

Linux and Cloud are Two of the Most In-demand IT Skills. 

The course is designed to meet the needs of both new Linux IT professionals, as well as experienced professionals seeking to polish their skills or planning to earn the LFCT certification

“As more organizations push forth with digital transformations, individuals with Linux Cloud skills continue to be in high-demand and short supply,” said Clyde Seepersad, SVP, and general manager of training & certification at the Linux Foundation. “We want to help individuals start successful careers in this space while also helping organizations to upskill and retain the talent they have.”

Participants will learn to connect to a system and perform critical customization and configuration tasks for cloud and non-cloud instances. They will have the opportunity to manage networking, system services, user account creation and administration. Participants will also become familiar with virtualization containers, and DevOps concepts in addition to gaining important skills, including text file processing, file operations, Bash scripting, use of Git and troubleshooting. All of which will assist with efficiently administering multiple systems in the cloud.

LFS203 is available for immediate enrollment for $299, or bundled with the LFCT exam for $595.
