  3. 3.

  5. 5. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Better class format </li></ul><ul><li>RH124 (“Red Hat® System Administration I”) and RH134 (“Red Hat® System Administration II”) include a combination of pre-administration and administration topics. </li></ul><ul><li>The OCS &quot;Linux Essentials&quot; class focuses on pre-administration topics while the OCS &quot;Linux Administration I&quot; class focuses on administration topics. </li></ul><ul><li>By eliminating unnecessary redundancy and reorganizing course material more logically, topics are covered in more depth and detail. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>More time to learn </li></ul><ul><li>Many students consider the official Red Hat® classes too fast paced. </li></ul><ul><li>Students feel rushed to pick up new material and complete labs while under pressure to prepare for the certification exam. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS courses cover all the same topics in a manner that provides more time for the student to learn and practice their new skills. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Time to study before taking the exam </li></ul><ul><li>Students who take the official Red Hat® classes are encouraged to sign up for the exam held the Friday of class. </li></ul><ul><li>It is extremely difficult to absorb the new material in a four-day class and pass the Red Hat® exam on the fifth day. </li></ul><ul><li>By taking OCS training classes and signing up for the exam at a later date, students have more time to practice what they have learned, increasing their chance of passing. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Free digital copy of the course material </li></ul><ul><li>With official Red Hat® classes, students only get a printed copy of the course materials. </li></ul><ul><li>With OCS classes, students also get a searchable PDF copy of the course materials. </li></ul><ul><li>This helps students study for the exam, provides an easier way to access the material and makes the courseware a more valuable reference resource. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Free courseware updates </li></ul><ul><li>Students can opt in to get free courseware updates for up to one year. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS constantly monitors student feedback to improve the course materials, including feedback concerning how well the courses prepared the student for the certification exams. </li></ul><ul><li>Regular updates ensure students get the best training possible. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Live USB disk </li></ul><ul><li>Red Hat® provides installation media for after-class use. The media only contain 64-bit versions of Linux and requires student to perform their own installation. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS students are provided with a classroom-based Operating System on a bootable USB. </li></ul><ul><li>This provides students with an environment in which to practice after class. Just boot from the USB key and you have both a “student” and “instructor” machine. </li></ul><ul><li>The Operating System that is provided on the USB will work both on 32-bit and 64-bit systems. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Clearly stated exam topics </li></ul><ul><li>Official Red Hat® courseware covers both testable and non-testable item. No indication in the courseware is made to indicate which topics are testable. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS covers all of the topics that are in the Red Hat® classes. However, all topics that are testable on the RHCSA™ and RHCE™ exams are clearly indicated in the courseware. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Additional Study Guide </li></ul><ul><li>Each student will receive a copy of &quot;Hands-on Guide to the Red Hat® Exams: RHCSA™ and RHCE™ Cert Guide and Lab Manual&quot; (by Damian Tommasino) to assist in studying for the certification exams. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS instructors will make use of this extra study guide during class to enhance student learning. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Instructors review exam objectives in class </li></ul><ul><li>In official Red Hat® classes, the instructors are highly discouraged from discussing or highlighting exam objectives. </li></ul><ul><li>In OCS classes, all instructors are RHCEs and will discuss the exams objectives to help the students focus on specific testable topics.* </li></ul><ul><li>OCS instructors will review all published test objectives both at the beginning and end of each course.* </li></ul>*Please note that all RHCEs are prohibited from discussing any actual exam content. OCS instructors will always abide by these restrictions, both in and out of the classroom.
  14. 14. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Exam review classes </li></ul><ul><li>OCS offers 1-day, instructor-led, online classes to provide students with a review of key testable topics: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>OCS-linux-199: RHCSA™ Review </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OCS-linux-299: RHCE™ Review </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Advantages of OCS Linux classes <ul><li>Better price </li></ul><ul><li>OCS provides all of these training benefits for less than the cost of official Red Hat classes. </li></ul><ul><li>OCS courses cost more than 20% less than official Red Hat® courses.
