In this official Red Hat® training course, Steve Bonneville, a technical curriculum architect for Red Hat Training, will teach students the basics of Linux® and demonstrate basic practical techniques of Linux use and system administration tasks for professionals new to the operating system.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux gives you the tools you need to modernize your infrastructure, boost efficiency through standardization and virtualization, and ultimately prepare your datacenter for an open, hybrid cloud IT architecture.
After attending this course, students will have a basic understanding of the Linux operating system. Short lectures and demonstrations will cover distribution, shell, kernel, userspace, file hierarchy, permissions, and more. This course will prepare students for further study of the core system administration tasks required to test for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam.
Linux is used for more than just traditional server applications. Learn why it is important for IT professionals to understand Linux and what makes it great.
Discuss what open source is, how it works, and why you should care about open source development.
Look at some examples of distributions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and discuss why different distributions exist.
Get introduced to what the "shell" is and walk through the basics of the default shell, bash.
Discuss the purpose of the Linux kernel and userspace and how they work with Linux at a high level. Then discover how to get information about and terminate running processes.

Discuss how file permissions are used to control access to user data, and how to interpret and manage them.
See how software packages are managed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and how they are distributed to systems.
Examine basic tools and techniques to manage networking settings from the Linux command line.
Gain an overview of how programs are started at boot time in Linux, and learn how to use systems in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 to control system daemons.
