Operating System: is the second course for Information Technology. On this course you will learn about Operating Systems and File Storage. We also introduce you to system security and shell programming. After you finish this course you will be able to install Windows or Linux on your computer.


Learning the operating system is very important for computer users and software developers alike. You must know how to organize data files, setup a backup or free space when disk C: is full.

To practice operating systems you need an experimental computer or virtual machine. You can install a virtual machine on your computer like any other program. Download from here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

As a developer you may wish to learn about Operating Systems to make better back-end applications. Here you can learn shell programming. If you learn Operatyng Systems + Programming: Python we grant you a System Engineer certificate.

For System Builders there is no need to learn a computer language. Therefore this exam do not include questions about computer programming. However it is a good skill to learn how to create shell scripts.
