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.

Therefore, by attending this course, delegates will be sufficiently prepared to take on a UNIX System Administrator role.
