This training is considered administrator-level Linux training, which means it was designed for systems administrators. This course is designed for systems administrators with three to five years of experience with open-source platforms.

New or aspiring systems administrators. Server administration for Linux servers is a core skillset for a system administrator, and this training will help ensure there's no element of it that you don’t understand. For system administrators who are relatively new to the field, this training will ensure you’re thoroughly educated in proper administration so you can take and pass the XK0-004 exam and earn the CompTIA Linux+ certification.

Experienced systems administrators. For systems administrators who’ve been in the field for a while, the Linux+ certification from CompTIA is one of the best ways to demonstrate your high level of competence in administering Linux-based networks. This training provides a substantial part of the information about server administration that gets tested on the XK0-004 exams for the Linux+ certification.
