If you want to learn how to use the Linux command and want to do it quickly, read on.

Hello. My name is Jason Cannon and I'm the author of Linux for Beginners as well as the founder of the Linux Training Academy. When I ask people to tell me what they most want to learn about the Linux operating system, they all say the same thing: the command line.

That's why I've created this course. It's designed for people who want to develop command line skills on the Linux operating system and need to do it in a short period of time.  By the end of the course you will be able to easily navigate your way around a Linux system and feel confident at the command line.
