Has anyone seen any new Online UNIX/Linux Certificates? Thanks...
For those, should stick with Industrial Certifications: UNIX: Solaris by Oracle/Sun MicroSystems. For Linux: LPC1,2,3 or RHC (Redhat).
I have a few industry certs. I was hoping to add one with a university name on it.
This one seems interesting...
Linux/Unix System Administration Certificate -- O'Reilly School of Technology
Here's one from California State University East Bay: CSU East Bay - LINUX/UNIX Online Cert
One from UC Berkeley Extension that has 3 classes available online but reading the FAQ seems to indicate you can transfer courses towards the certificate. Sounds like it might be worth checking out: UC Berkeley Linux/UNIX FAQs
Frankly, in my own opinion...those certificates from the academic institutions do not add any value to your resume. You either get a college degree plus industrial certifications, or just stay with the certifications. I have Bachelor and Master degrees, and working my Ph.D; but DoD requires me to get my CISSP.
Thanks for your input. I'm pretty sure I got your opinion the first time.
I'm pretty sure he wasn't directing that comment towards you.
Well, I just wanted to persuade you to stay away from it because I don't see you would gain any benefits. But you're still looking for the programs; there many out there. Here are some to the list...
- University of Washington
- University of California (Los Angeles)
