I am working through the RHCT course content topic list, gettting the
info from the RedHat 9 Bible. However I feel like a blind man tapping
around with a white stick. I am using it because it is a structured
course from which I can learn how to use Linux.
Is anybody a RH Certified Technician or had experience with the
training course for this qualification?
I need some advice/guidance on what I should be doing.
If your aim is to learn how to use Linux, then just read the books and do
things. Install machines from scratch, play with different distributions,
configure networking, etc. There is really no better way to learn than by
doing, and remember that some of the people here have been using Linux for
many years, so it's not an instant thing.
If you want to become an RHCT, then you need to either have an RHCT
coursebook or do an RHCT course. There is really no other way to do it - I
believe that most of the RH course details are under NDA. If you are "good
with Linux" you might be able to pass bits of the course without studying,
but there are RH specific parts that aren't standard day to day operations
and won't be covered in a generic "learn RH9" book.
