Truly enlightening course. Can be taken by novices who want to get started with Enterprise Linux and also by professionals looking to up their skills. Highly recommended.

Excellent instructor who has a lot of practical knowledge of network security. I would certainly enroll in another course if it were offered through the same instructor.

It's was a balance between theory and practicals but wasn't up to the expectations. New members may not be able to understand some advanced concepts directly used without prior explanation. Overall, a decent course to start off from, to know the basics of enterprise-level Linux server management.

L​ectures are the best part. I agree, there were many parts where the lecturer jumped into complex subjects without diving into details.
