Becoming certified in Linux can benefit you in two ways. If your job duties include Linux troubleshooting, installation, or maintenance, or if you are preparing for any Linux-related career, it provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be successful. It also assists by preparing you to take the CompTIA® Linux+ exam, an essential credential for individuals working in IT and seeking careers in web and software development.

Prince George's Community College is a proud Academy Partner of CompTIA—The voice of information technology.
