Good course to learn Linux?

I know a bit about Linux but never actually officially learned he OS, and so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good starting course before moving into the web development aspect of things?

    Hi John,

    If you have a decent working knowledge, I would recommend the LPIC-1 courses (https://linuxacademy.com/cp/modules/view/id/214) or the Red Hat Certified System Administraotr course (https://linuxacademy.com/cp/modules/view/id/39).

    Hope this helps!

    I wanted to second what stosh said, and also recommend the linux essentials course.

     @johnbee Linux Essentials is a pretty good place to start.  It fills in a lot of gaps I had. I had worked with Linux but there was stuff covered in Essentials that I didn't know. I enjoyed it.

    I passed the Linux Essentials and am now doing the RHCSA, and I can vouch for both courses as an every day user. And Kenny Armstrong did an amazing job on the revised Essentials course. In both courses, I'm learning new commands/tools/configs/services that I didn't know existed with every new module.

    I guess it depends on your goals, but I will say that the Linux Essentials probably won't be so beginner that you're wasting your time. I was asking senior admins questions while I was studying that they still weren't 100% sure of. I say jump right in to the Essentials and if it feels too easy, escalate to RHCSA or LPIC-1!
