I am new to the Kace Tool and will not be able to have Jump start training until mid-June. Can give me the elementary answer to pushing the Kace tool to Mac and Linux workstations. Do i have to create my own agent?

If your machines have SSH logins enabled then you can deploy the agent through provisioning. Look under Settings, Provisioning.
For your MacOS machines you can also deploy using Apple Remote Desktop if you have that setup. Push the package to install it and then run this command to set the hostname:
/Library/Application\ Support/Dell/KACE/bin/AMPTools set host=kacehostname.domain.tld
I don't manage any Linux computers but I imagine there is a similar AMPTools command that you can use.
