My name is Chris.
Ive worked as a Data Center tech working on Servers, IP appliances, and networking. Ive always wanted to learn Linux. Over the years ive started several times but found it "too hard".
Covid hit last year and I was furloughed for 5 months beginning in mid March. After about a month of playing videos games and tryng to figure out what I wanted to do until I was called back to work I decided to actually spend money on the best training I could find for Linux (at the price I could afford) and hit that as if it were my job. I bought the official COMPTIA Linux+ study materials and went to work. With my effort, quite a few Centos VMs , and the very good COMPTIA Linux+ material I was able to learn the material and pass the Linux+ cert.
Applied to dozens of admin positions and no responses...
In the mean time, ive been studying other material from other vendors and found it to be lacking. Ive been eye balling the Red Hat courses for months but with a wife and child, I cant afford the price of the sub now, so my wife suggested I write RH Support and inquite about a Veterans discount. She said "you never know..."
To my surpise RH Support pointed me to a US Veterans organization they (RH/IBM) support. I signed up and was given access to the IBM SkillsBuild Platform (Which is Amazing, BTW) and through that, I am able to take RH 124 and RH134.
Thank you IBM and Red Hat. I appreciate this opportunity you have provided me through your support for the Veteran community.
