As a homeless veteran with limited skill and help, this course has been amazing. I plan to take all the LFCA courses and hopefully get certified. Thank you so much.

I feel like I have a much greater understanding of Linux than ever before. I've "played" with Linux for years, but now I feel like I can do things with it.

The course is an eye-opener for non-IT students, it covers the basics of Linux, and goes further into the functions and operations of the Linux Operating System.

The presentation of the material was easy to follow, and having the ability to perform tasks both within the course platform as well as in a VM really helps to reinforce the learning material. I liked the way specific distributions were recommended, as well as the reasoning behind that.
