Our Linux+ XK0-005 courseware is a complete instructor-led training solution with conceptual material and lab exercises covering all exam objectives. Within the courseware itself you will find instructions for downloading a lab environment based on virtual machines (VMs). After installation, you will be able to run all the exercises in the course. This lab option is included in the base price of the courseware.

You can also select the Online Labs option for an additional charge. With the Online Labs, there are no computer setup requirements other than an internet connection and a web browser. Each student is assigned a voucher code. After logging in, students will work in a VM-based lab environment (with accompanying instructions) right in their browsers. It’s the same labs and lab environment that are included with our standard course, just much easier to set up and access. Actually, there's no setup at all! The access period is six months from redemption of the voucher code. (Instructor codes are good for one year.)
