Would there be a "Linux for Dumbass.." such a course that I could possibly be aware of to bag me this opportunity...
No idea, since you don't really tell us where you're from. Without knowing that, how can we tell you of any courses that may be around you? Also, your post is confusing...you are "under a computer networks program", your job is at stake...but you found a job?? Not sure what you mean. And a networking job shouldn't require Linux from scratch knowledge.
And not to sound nasty...but not having the skills/requirements for a job is not a "loophole"...it means you're not qualified. No quickie class is going to give you the skills overnight to be able to do a job competently. If you've got a position now, keep it, and get the skills you need. Otherwise, I'd suggest looking for something that you DO have the skills for. Good luck
