BSDA (Associate) System Administration Training
April 22 - 25, 2008
This BSDA (Associate) course covers the the fundamentals of BSD system administration, including: installation (i386), system services, installing software packages, network configuration, and more. The class focuses on the requirements and seven study domains for the BSD Certification Group's BSDA (BSD "Associate") Certification Requirements Document (also known as the BSDA Exam Objectives).
This class is for users of Linux, Unix or BSD operating systems to provide beginning system administration skills for the popular *BSD operating systems. Similarities and differences for many administration tasks under Linux and the BSDs will be discussed. The hands-on class is taught using the four main BSD operating systems: DragonFly, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD. (This class is useful for comparing different BSD flavours.)
This course is designed for students who are new to BSD administration. Some Unix shell experience would be helpful. The skills taught in this class will be very applicable for Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and Solaris administration. The BSD Certification Group provides certification exams for the BSDA. This class provides a pre-paid voucher for the BSDA certification exam but doesn't offer the exam itself. The course doesn't guarantee that the curriculum covers all BSDA requirements and participation in the course doesn't guarantee students successful passing of the BSDA examination.
Topics covered in this course include:
US$1560.00 for four-day, hands-on training including CDs and course materials.
15-percent discount for extra early paid registration by March 21, 2008. Group rates also available.
Registered students will receive an official BSDA certification exam voucher from the BSD Certification Group, Inc. This pre-paid BSDA exam voucher can be used to take an official BSDA certification exam when properly registered.
Class sizes are kept small, so seating is limited. Please email or call us to pre-register.
