Wanted: mentor/tutor for LFCS SysAdmin exam
I am currently looking for an LFCS (preferred) or RHCSA qualified Linux
systems administrator, to assist with a very small amount of tutoring work
as I prepare to take the LFCS exam on January 19, 2019. Most of this work
would involve checking syntax related to inbuilt bash commands, but it
would also involve some additional advice surrounding the configuration of
Apache, SELinux, various networking utilities, and Docker.
I envisage that this work will involve 2x (or max. 3x) sessions of 60mins
duration. Although I am based in Melbourne's inner east (and would prefer
to meet in person), I am open to completing these tutorial sessions
remotely (eg. via Skype). As my exam is scheduled for 19/1/2019, I am
hoping that these sessions can take place during the week of Monday 14th
I am aiming to reimburse the right person with $50-$60 per session.
Specifically, I am looking for someone most comfortable with the RHEL 7 /
CentOS 7 distribution.
I have been studying the Linux Foundation's LS101 and LS201 courses
intensively over the past two years, but I am hoping to meet with a
sysadmin who has sat this course (or the RHCSA) previously - to check my
answers to some very specific practice questions. For an example of these
test questions, please visit http://go.unimelb.edu.au/kjk6 . For more
information about the current LFCS exam, including the *official* list of
competencies, please see: http://go.unimelb.edu.au/wsg6 .
If interested, please send an short introductory email, alongside a brief
career summary (full CV not needed) to: sblewis.lfcs @ gmail.com

An ISO certified organisation needs people who can do on-site support for
embedded Linux systems. The main requirements are being a technical person,
having a drivers license, and the ability to follow a list of instructions.
Having a probationary license might be a problem when visiting construction
sites. If you feel you will be good at going through a check-list of wiring
up a Linux system from a cherry-picker on a construction site but don't have a
full license then apply, but be aware this will be an issue. If you are close
to getting your full license then tell me how long it will be. It is possible
to interview someone now and have them start work when their probationary
period on their license ends.
Having some prior knowledge of Linux is an advantage as is any prior
involvement with makerspaces.
Is there any jobs list for people involved with makerspaces?
