Course Information

Administrating UNIX Systems Course Overview

UNIX is a group of computer operating systems that can be used by multiple users to complete multiple tasks. This course has been designed to provide a broad overview of UNIX Sytems and its administration. Our Administrating UNIX Systems training course provides specific knowledge and practical experience for aspiring UNIX System Administrators. The course primarily focuses on basic SVR4 commands, which can be used to navigate a UNIX system. It is not vendor-specific and does not look at GUI tools. After successfully completing this course, delegates will be able to define the UNIX operating system, work with directories and files, work with the vi editor to produce and adjust files, and use advanced shell features in shell scripts. Therefore, by attending this course, delegates will be sufficiently prepared to take on a UNIX System Administrator role.
