Who should attend

The Linux System Administration (LPI) training course is suitable for novice Linux System Administrators who need to acquire administration knowledge of the key administrative, networking, performance and security tasks required on Linux within the Enterprise. The typical delegate will be working in an environment using several different Linux distributions and therefore knowledge of skills common to all the different Linux distributions is required. For the purpose of practical exercises, SUSE Linux will be used.

Note: Should the delegate only require knowledge of Red Hat Linux then they should instead consider attending our range of Red Hat Linux Administration courses.


This Linux System Administration (LPI) assumes good knowledge of the Linux operating system in an Enterprise environment to the level covered in the Linux Introduction course.

Knowledge of Linux Shell Programming to the level covered on the Linux Shell Programming course would also be beneficial.
