1-on-1 Mentored Linux Training


Are you interested in Linux training and aren't sure where to start?

The problem with trying to learn Linux on your own is that you don't know what you don't know.

This is the advantage of structured training. With clearly defined objectives, you learn the fundamentals first. The question "what should I focus on next?" is already answered for you.

FOSSter is Different

We have been providing Linux and Open Source training to individuals and businesses for more than 15 years. We know that there is simply no substitute for hands-on learning, and that conventional classroom training produces substandard results. At FOSSter you will receive one-on-one instruction from your own personal mentor.

FOSSter's mission is to provide a more comprehensive training experience through mentorship, hands-on work, live-environment exercises, and post-certification access to mentors.

How does it work?

Our courses are directly aligned with the objectives of the Linux Professional Institute & CompTIA certifications. You will work through the FOSSter courseware at your own pace and on your own schedule. Your mentor will answer questions and guide you through complex topics when you feel you need further instruction. Throughout your training with FOSSter you will be working on live Linux servers, stepping into the role of system administrator to solve everyday tasks you'll encounter in the field. Your mentor will provide comprehensive feedback every step of the way.

What happens when I'm finished the courseware?

We want you to get as much hands-on experience as possible during your training with us. When you're finished the courseware you can optionally participate in an Open Source project or, if you're already employed, define a meaningful project in your workplace. Your mentor will help you choose an appropriate project and provide guidance throughout.

Certification and beyond

Our courses will prepare you for the Linux Professional Institute and CompTIA certifications. Your mentor will help you prepare for the exams, and we will continue to work with you until you succeed. That is our certification guarantee. Following certification, your mentor will continue to be available to help answer on-the-job Linux questions for up to a full year!
