CompTIA Linux+ Certification Training Course Outline

 (5 days)

The CompTIA® Linux+™ Powered by LPI (Exams LX0-103 and LX0-104) course, developed to cover CompTIA Powered by LPI exams LX0-103 and LX0-104, builds on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with the Linux operating system to present fundamental skills and concepts that you will use on the job in any type of Linux career.

This course can benefit you in two ways. If your job duties include Linux troubleshooting, installation, or maintenance, or if you are preparing for any type of Linux-related career, it provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be successful. In addition, it assists you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA® Linux+™ Powered by LPI exams (Exam Codes: LX0-103 and LX0-104), in order to become a CompTIA® Linux+™ Certified Professional.

Certification Exam Vouchers Included (A $376 value!)
All of our CompTIA classes include the cost of the CompTIA exam vouchers. With this class, vouchers for exams LX0-103 and LX0-104 are included--a $376 value. Students must schedule when and where they will take the exam through Pearson Vue, the CompTIA testing service.

Retaking an Exam
Retake exams are at your own cost. A voucher is good for a single exam attempt. If you do not pass, you will need to purchase another voucher to retake that exam. ONLC does not provide free "retake vouchers." Therefore, be sure to do the necessary preparation before scheduling your exam.

Transcender Exam Prep Software
All of our CompTIA classes include access to web-based practice exams. CompTIA certification exams are very rigorous and challenging. By studying after the class and using these practice exams, you will greatly improve your chances of passing the actual certification exam the first time. Exam prep software is included with all CompTIA classes delivered by ONLC Training Centers.
