I am teaching a class focusing on the BSD Certification Group's BSDA (BSD
"Associate") Certification exam objectives in April near DFW in Texas.
The curriculum used for over a dozen BSD administration classes has been
adjusted to reflect the BSDA objectives which are based on the BSD
Certification Group's Job Task Analysis.
The BSDA covers over 100 objectives in seven knowledge domains:
fundamental Unix skills; installing and upgrading the operating system and
third-party software; basic system administration; files, file systems,
and disks; network administration; users and accounts management; and
In addition, the training will cover ports and packaging systems,
networking setup and troubleshooting, enabling and managing services,
file system management, various security techniques and tools, startup
scripts, cron, periodic tasks, inetd, syslogging, SSH, and more.
The hands-on class will also provide students with experience
with multiple operating system installations.
The course details are at
Discounts are available for groups and early registration.
Students will receive a copy of:
- The BSD Associate Study Guide: The Beginning BSD Unix Administration
Book (printed book based on the bsdwiki project).
- Dru Lavigne's book The Best of FreeBSD Basics
I am also working at providing paid vouchers for taking the BSDA exam. (Or
a donation will be made to the non-profit group.)
(Note: I don't have knowledge of exam questions nor is this class
affiliated with the BSDCG.)
