Linux® is an Open Source, full-featured, powerful and robust UNIX-like operating system based on the initial work of Linus Torvalds from the University of Helsinki in Finland. Since 1991, his work was extended and ported to many platforms by a worldwide community of software developers. Today it runs everything from embedded systems to nuclear submarines. Linux also powers Wall Street, the London Stock Exchange, the CERN supercollider, and NASA's supercomputers.


Total Linux® is a comprehensive, hands-on Linux training program using the latest kernel and Fedora release on 64-bit hardware. This flagship course covers intermediate to advanced Linux system and network administration, security and optimization. It helps prepare students for Linux Professional Institute (LPIC), Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE), and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certifications.

Started by Bluepoint in 1999, Total Linux is the most respected and highly recognized Linux training program in the Philippines.
