What Other Students Are Saying About My Certification Courses:

  • Great, precise, and to the point explanations of concepts. A big problem with books and even some other videos is that they can get too wordy for their own good. Jason gives great and short explanations. He also makes great use of real world ways of looking at things. (Emanuel R., 5 stars)

  • The course has great tempo and the instructor is upbeat and interesting. It is obvious he loves teaching the subject, I love learning from him. (Michael G., 5 stars).

  • The course was great, I took an entire week to watch the course and do the practice exams. Jason is great at explaining the concepts, and I'm happy to say that I am now certified! (Fernando D., 5 stars)

  • Once again I am impressed with this course from Jason. His teaching style is spot and his explanation of the course work perfect. Would recommend this course for anyone looking to get a start in Linux system administration, or wish just to learn the basics for personal knowledge. (Paul S., 5 stars)
