Sure.  Here's how you do it.  Hopefully you are running kali linux or some other linux distro you are familiar with and that you have openvpn installed.   If so, the following will work:

1.)  Download the file you mentioned (file extension is ovpn)

2.)  Open a terminal and 'cd' into your Downloads directory containing the file and type "openvpn" followed by the name of the downloaded file.  (it will probably autocomplete if you start typing it and press tab.)  Press enter.

3.)  Now you will be prompted for a username and then a password.  Once you have entered these, you are connected.

4.)  Do NOT close the terminal.  Leave it running and switch to a new workspace (ideally).

5.)  Open a new terminal in the new workspace and type "ip a" to verify that you now have a vpn connection.  If so, the interface will be called "tap0" and you'll have an IP address that matches the subnet referenced in your lab manual.
