Ubuntu Linux Training Course

Ubuntu Linux Training Course Overview

Our 2-day practical Ubuntu Linux Training Course for End-Users is designed for individuals who are new to Linux and want to gain hands-on experience working with the Ubuntu operating system. The course covers the basics of the Ubuntu Linux desktop, including how to navigate and use the Unity desktop environment, manage files and directories, and use basic Linux commands.

We also cover package management, networking, and troubleshooting. The course is hands-on and interactive, with plenty of opportunities to practice what you learn. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of Ubuntu Linux and the skills to use it effectively on your own.

Ubuntu Linux is a free and open source operating system based on the Debian Linux distribution. It is designed for desktop and laptop computers, servers, and IoT devices. Ubuntu Linux is known for its ease of use, stability, and security. It is also known for its large and active community of users and developers who contribute to the development and maintenance of the operating system.

Ubuntu Linux is released on a regular schedule, with new versions released every six months and long-term support releases every two years. It comes with a wide range of pre-installed software and utilities, including a web browser, text editor, and productivity tools.

Ubuntu Linux is widely used in both personal and professional settings.

Linux has several benefits, including:

  • It is open source software, which means it is free to use, distribute, and modify.
  • It is highly customisable, allowing users to tailor their experience to their specific needs.
  • It is stable and reliable, with a reputation for being less prone to crashes and viruses than other operating systems.
  • It is a versatile operating system, capable of running on a wide range of hardware, from servers and desktops to smartphones and embedded devices.
  • It has a large and active community of developers and users who contribute to and support the development of the software.
  • It has a large number of open source software that can be used with it.
  • It is secure, with regular updates and patches to address any vulnerabilities.
  • It has a low system requirements and can run on older hardware.

Dual-Boot Environment

Ubuntu Linux can be installed on a computer alongside an existing operating system, such as Microsoft Windows. This is known as a dual-boot setup, and allows the user to choose which operating system they want to use when the computer starts up.

This can be useful for those who need access to both Windows and Ubuntu Linux applications, but don’t want to run virtual machines or switch between operating systems.

Only Linux Installed

If a user only wants to use Ubuntu Linux, they can choose to install it as the only operating system on their computer. This will result in a pure Linux environment, with no other operating system installed. This is a good option for users who are primarily interested in using open-source software, and who do not need access to proprietary software or hardware that may not be compatible with Linux.


Ubuntu Linux can also be installed as a virtual machine using Virtualbox. This allows users to run Ubuntu Linux as an application within their existing operating system. This is a useful option for those who want to try out Ubuntu Linux, but don’t want to make any permanent changes to their computer, or who need access to both Windows and Linux applications.


Ubuntu Linux can be run from a USB drive, which is known as a “live” or “portable” system. This allows users to try out Ubuntu Linux on any computer that can boot from a USB drive, without making any changes to the existing operating system. This is a good option for those who want to test Ubuntu Linux, or who need a portable operating system that they can use on multiple computers.
