    Question for Linux Professionals
    « on: November 12, 2008, 06:36:53 PM »
    I want to build up my resume. Problem is, I cannot afford RHCT/RHCE classes or training at the moment. I have tons of down time at work as a Technician at a popular web host. I would love to use this time to be able to study more linux or IT related subjects and gain some certs. Does anyone know if there are any free or cheap certifications I can get involved in? I don't mind paying but I'm looking for something that may be offered for free that I can study. These certs and information will also help me when I'm ready to take on RHCE or RHCT.

    Any suggestions or information welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Hi abelleba,
    Some 60 people read your post and not even one remark. Well, I can not really call myself a Linux professional, cause I never made and money with Linux. Anyway, if you want certification to push your job getting skills you need to take a very broad approach.
    You might be in a city that has a local college hat can give you some help with getting papers that impress employers. The object is not to get better skills, but to show that you can pass tests to show you know how to study. Even a subject that you think is a dead end. Some have on-line courses that get you credits that will look good on your resume. You will not find this advertised on the internet. You have to go to the campus and find out what they have. There are programs they have to reduce the fees is you have some reason. Like maybe you have a family to support.

      Thanks for posting but my local community college only offers a Linux intro class which is a little bit to slow paced if you know what I mean. I'll keep a look out on the Internet I guess. Anyone else have any other ideas by chance?

        usually, certifications that impress will cost money.
