Course Reviews

The course was very digestible and the material included exceptionally comprehensive. The lecturer, Mark Holloway, was easy to follow as usual. His understanding of Red Hat Linux is exactly what you want from a trainer and we tested this as often as we could. I always come away thoroughly satisfied and impressed from these training sessions. 'Stayahead' is reliable for giving you the firm grounding in Linux you expect and so much more.

Nicholas - EO Software Engineer


The course covers the necessary topics following on from parts one & two, to have enough knowledge to complete the RHCSA. The pace allows time to investigate the topics fully and I also found that I was able to relate to real life usage in the field.
