Great...did any of these certificates or courses happen to cover Google, or using a search function?? This has been covered on here MANY times, and Google has about 500k hits.
Do you remember your root password? What version/distro of Linux are you using?? You should be able to boot into single-user mode, or via a Linux CD/DVD, and change your password from there, or log in as root and change it with "passwd <username>".
