The LPIC-1 Linux Administrator certification demonstrates a basic proficiency with the Linux operating system and the ability to perform real-world maintenance and administrative tasks. The 102-500 exam expands upon the topics covered in 101-500 with more detailed usage of many commands, scripting, troubleshooting and security.

You're watching ITVPROTV. [MUSIC] >> Hello, ladies and gentlemen welcome to the LPIC-1 Linux Administrator series. We would like to take a few minutes to tell you about what you can expect. I'm gonna be your host, Wes Bryan. I've been in a technical instructor for around 10 years now, but the Man of the hour are subject matter in Linux is Don possessed. Don tell us a little bit about yourself. >> I am Don Bizet Co-founder and entertainer here at ITPROTV. I've been working in IT for over 25 years, and I've been working with Linux since it came out in 1992. I've used it in production environments as well as personally for decades now. And hopefully I'll be able to use that experience to bring a great learning environment for Linux into this show. >> All right, Don So let's say somebody has just click play on their very first video here in LPIC-1 Linux Administrator. What are some of the things that they can expect? What is it for? Let's say, if I was the viewer, what's in it for me? >> All right, what's in it for you. Well, one obviously want to help you get exam ready. We'll talk about that in a moment. But also we want to help you just be better at Linux, understanding how Linux functions and what's going on under the hood. If you are a system administrator responsible for supporting Linux systems or if you're just a hobbyist that wants to learn more about it. This is a great series for you because we're going to focus on all of the nuts and bolts pieces that make up the Linux operating system. And when you know more about that, you know better how to get the most value out of running Linux as your OS. >> All right, so let's take just a few seconds here. Tell us a little bit about the course goals and the overall structure of this course Don. >> All right, so this course is actually a part two, right? So hopefully, if you've come to get your l pick certification, you've already watched the 101-500 series. This is the 102-500 it's tailored towards the second exam, and that means it doesn't necessarily follow like a story. We're not picking up halfway. You could watch them out of order if you want it. But you'll be better off watching the other exam first. That content first before coming to this one. But once you're here, we're gonna learn about a lot of really neat things. We're gonna learn about graphical interfaces and Linux like X windows and other GUI. We're gonna learn about networking and how that functions will spend some time on security and other topics there. And we're really going to get a good understanding of how all of those components contribute to the OS. >> So, Don, I know that this is a certification geared course. Maybe some of our viewers don't. And maybe they haven't taken this certification before. Can you tell us a little bit about that certification itself and what they can expect? >> Yeah, well, like I mentioned earlier, there's actually two exams. So if you want to get your LPIC-1 Linux system Administrator certification, you have to pass the 101-500 the 102-500 exams. This courses tailored towards 102-500. And I've got that pulled up here on my computer. Let me just kind of give you a quick overview of that. Basically, you'd have to pass both exams to get your LPIC-1 certification. The exams are pretty straightforward. There multiple choice you usually have 60 questions, you get 90 minutes to take them. And you can take them at various Pearson Vue locations and using on view, you can take them online now as well. So a lot of different options there as far as the content, you can pull the exam objectives up, and we're going to follow the exam objectives for this course. So basically, as you look through here, we're gonna follow the order. I might rearrange a few little things just to make logical sense, but we're gonna go through and cover each and every one of these exam objectives. So we're gonna start off talking about the command shell, scripting how to write a basic script. We're going to move into graphical interfaces and desktops after that. Then we'll continue on into other technologies like administrative tasks. We'll see how to automate and schedule things and even handle user management topics like that. Then we'll go into some of the essential services that make up Linux. How we handle localization, logging message transfer. These are all kind of critical things that we expect every Linux server to be able to do. Then we've got our network fundamental. So we'll talk about how we can get multiple Linux machines to communicate with each other over a network. And finally, we'll talk about security. Security is a big hot button these days. If you're deploying Linux, you want to make sure it's secure and there's a lot of stuff built in that can do that. That's all stuff that we're gonna cover right here in this series. >> Don, I'm excited about this series because I'm making my entrance into the Linux world. Why are you excited about this course? >> Well, I'm always excited about any Linux course cause it is my favorite operating system. I use it on pretty much every server I touched these days, so very widespread there. It's incredibly powerful, and I think back to when I first got involved in Linux. And I just enjoyed so much learning a new OS, appreciating the stability, the extensibility, the functionality of Linux. I mean, it is a phenomenal operating system, and so that's what makes me so excited to teach it. >> All right, ladies and gentlemen, if that's something that excites you were glad you're joining us here ITPROTV and more excited that you're joining us for LPIC-1 Linux Administrator. So stay tuned. [MUSIC] >> Thank you for watching ITPROTV.
