Overview of what's new in this update

 
  • We've replaced the limited workstation in our labs so it is easier for students to navigate and explore as they work through tasks in a simulated desktop environment.
  • To prepare students for the evolving use cases for Linux, we have updated our content to be more concise and cover more advanced topics, such as containers.
  • We've added functionality to more Linux commands including nslookup, apt, grep, sudo, git, and more.

    The CompTIA Linux+ (XKO-005) exam has been updated to accommodate for shifting industry expectations, as Linux is utilized in new and more complex ways. Linux Pro is 100% aligned and helps prepare students to learn essential Linux administrative principles and demonstrate their knowledge and skills using scenario-based lab simulations in a networked environment that's optimized for structured learning.
