The dirty little secret associated with Linux is these High Paying jobs can be learned at home! That’s right, individuals can teach themselves Linux from their own computer.
There is no need for expensive college and trade schools. All a person needs to do is set up their computer with Ubuntu 14.04.3 lts, centOS 7 and openSUSE 13.2. Then they need to take two on-line self paced Linux courses.
The first course is “The Introduction To Linux” course and this can be founnd at www.edx.org. This course is FREE if people agree to audit the course when they are finished!
The second course is “The Certified Linux Administrator” course. This can be found at www.linuxfoundation.org. This course runs $500 and last time I saw it offered the Linux Foundation offered this course to a buddy for $150.
Certified Linux Administrator is your career
We are now getting into the realm of finding legitimate excuses for not immediately starting to learn Linux!
After you finish these two courses the next task is to install the Ubuntu Server onto your computer. Then you need to print out the Ubuntu Server Manual, which is also FREE!
Now you need to learn the LAMP, email, dns and even WordPress!
You do these things and you will have extremely Marketable skills as a Certified Linux Administrator!
If I was to make an educated guess at how long it will take you to learn Linux, I would say six months tops!
So the quicker you take up the challenge the quicker companies like Liquid Web will hire you.
In conclusion, I will end this article by saying Liquid Web hires people for Linux positions that are not even close to the requirements for certified Linux Administrators. The positions are not a lot but get your foot in the door as fast as you can!
Finally, I’m here to tell you, you can do this!
Stan out for now!
