    Yeah. To be honest though, nowadays with software so well developed such as WHM, you don't need to have a huge knowledge of Linux SSH.

    See how many tasks you can do from the test only using whm..

    You need to have a good understanding of shell commands to get things done.

    So where does someone get good training that includes material mentioned here? I'm skeptical that even a College will mention many things like cPanel. I'm not even sure about Apache, at least in detail.

    Is the trick to somehow find an entry level job that is just beneath System Admin or Intern where you can learn all the quirks of the company servers and applications? Or if you are lucky and live in a big metro city, find Linux and IT workshops or seminars to attend for concentrated learning?

    I think the suggested quiz is harder than it should be for most businesses. However, the sample quiz seems to provide a variety of questions that I think the OP intended for employers to pick through.
