The Linux Foundation has announced the immediate online enrollment for two courses: Introduction to Open Source License Compliance Management (LFC193) and Fundamentals of Open Source IT and Cloud Computing (LFS200).
The Introduction to Open Source License Compliance Management (LFC193) course explores the basic concepts and approaches needed for an open source compliance program. The two-hour online course provides knowledge from the basics of intellectual property through to key concepts of an open source review.
It is based on real-world experience and focuses on outcomes that are directly applicable to product and service deployment. Participants will gain an understanding of how to use compliance as business optimization, reducing resource use and increasing efficiency.
The free online course is in partnership with the OpenChain Project, which maintains the International Standard for open source license compliance.
The Fundamentals of Open Source IT and Cloud Computing (LFS200), originally announced in October, serves as prep for the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate (LFCA) exam.
LFS200 is designed for those new to the IT industry or considering starting an IT career as a system administrator or engineer. The course is ideal for those interested in advancing to the professional level through a gained understanding of critical concepts for modern IT systems, including cloud computing.
Topics covered include foundational knowledge of computer hardware, software, and operating systems, in addition to more specific concepts related to system administration, networking, troubleshooting, the internet, cloud, security, DevOps, project management, and open source software and licensing.
The course also prepares participants for the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate (LFCA) exam, which demonstrates to potential employers that a candidate possesses the requisite knowledge to be successful in an entry-level IT role.
LFS200 is available for immediate enrollment for $99, or bundled with the LFCA exam for $299.
