"I highly recommend the TestOut Linux Pro program. I have been using this for several years to help my students learn the necessary skills and knowledge to be competitive in the IT field. I like how the TestOut Linux Pro program begins at the basic level and teaches the skills in a virtual command line interface. I allow my students to repeat the labs as many times as they want, to solidify the concepts. The culminating benefit is that TestOut Linux Pro has also prepared my students to successfully pass certification exams."

“I teach a variety of technology courses for high school students. I use Linux Pro because, like all other TestOut packages, it provides a complete program on the topic with videos, information pages, labs, and quizzes that I can package into convenient units for my students. The content is extensive and gives me the opportunity to offer it as part of a Linux OS class or the System Admin portion of a Networking class. The ability to create custom exams is also a plus, as it allows me to tailor exams to the specific needs of different student groups. I can't imagine teaching without it!"

Lab technology makes real-world scenarios possible

testout scenario

Linux Pro features a custom-built Linux distro in the labs that is vendor-neutral. This covers commands from several Linux distributions, ensures learners have the Linux command-line interface experience needed to pass the CompTIA Linux+ exam, and gives them a head start in their careers.

Exhibits in the labs indicate key information about how the network is set up with gateways and IP addresses.

You'll learn to troubleshoot the network to discover an unplugged Ethernet cable, plug it in, and then start a network interface card from a Linux command-line interface. Linux Pro is a cost-effective choice for educators as it eliminates the need to invest in computer equipment or download and install software.
