CompTIA On-Demand is a self-study training solution that is a great fit for individuals with considerable IT experience who don't need a traditional 5-day class to prepare for a CompTIA exam.

You may take this course at any time; there are no set dates.The course includes hours of videos, demonstrations, lab exercises, and printed courseware that provide a comprehensive look at common tasks performed by system administrators. This includes installation, management of Linux systems from the command line and the GUI, user administration, file permissions, customization, software configuration, management of Linux-based clients, troubleshooting,expanded coverage of networking and security, and much more.

Target Student
The course is intended for IT professionals who are specializing in the Linux+ platform. Students should have an existing user-level knowledge and experience with the Linux operating system.

To ensure your success in this course, you should have at least foundational experience with general systems administration procedures, some hands-on exposure to one or more Linux distributions, as well as knowledge of computing hardware and basic networking and cybersecurity concepts.

You can obtain this level of skills and knowledge by taking the following official CompTIA courses:
The Official CompTIA® A+® Core 1 and 2 (Exams 220-1001 and 220-1002)
The Official CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-007)
The Official CompTIA® Security+® (Exam SY0-501)

Additional Notes Regarding CompTIA Certification Exams
As with most professional IT certifications, many additional hours of study are required before the class (meeting the prerequisites) and after the class (reviewing exam objectives and practice questions). Expect to spend a significant number of hours studying before you take a CompTIA or any other IT professional exam. CompTIA certification exams are very rigorous and challenging. By studying using the practice exams, you will greatly improve your chances of passing the actual certification exam the first time.

ONLC’s Exam Pass Guarantee
ONLC’s CompTIA certification classes come with an Exam Pass Guarantee. What that essentially means is that we want to make sure that everyone is taking advantage of the Practice Test that we are providing and achieve a score of 85% or better in Certification Mode prior to us releasing the initial exam voucher.
The practice test is ordered upon request. Once you provide a copy of the course Certificate of Completion along with lab completion documentation we will email the web-based practice test. After achieving a score of 85% or better, email proof to exam@onlc.com and we will go ahead and release the exam voucher to you within 24 business hours. Should you fail the exam on the first attempt, after submitting your authorized exam score and additional study, we will then provide a second voucher. However, should you decide to not take the practice exam or to take the exam without first achieving the 85% in certification mode, the Exam Pass is null and void. Please read through our:
