    Professional Certifications


    The Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC) program is designed to certify the competency of IT professionals using the Linux operating system and its associated tools. It is designed to be distribution neutral, following the Linux Standard Base and other relevant standards and conventions.
    The LPIC program is designed in multiple levels. Determining which tasks were suitable to each level was done using a "Job Task Analysis" (JTA) survey. As with all of the LPIC exam development processes, the JTA was developed and executed using recognized psychometric processes, to ensure its relevance and high quality.
    LPIC-1

    Junior Level Linux Certification

    The first IT certification program to be professionally accredited by National Commission For Certifying Agencies.
    To pass Level 1 you should be able to:
    • Work at the Linux command line
    • Perform easy maintenance tasks: help out users, add users to a larger system, backup & restore, shutdown & reboot
    • Install and configure a workstation (including X) and connect it to a LAN, or a stand-alone PC via modem to the Internet.
    GET LPIC-1 CERTIFIED

    LPIC-2

    Advanced Level Linux Certification

    You must have an active LPIC-1 certification to receive LPIC-2 certification, but the LPIC-1 and LPIC-2 exams may be taken in any order.
    To pass Level 2 you should be able to:
    • Administer a small to medium-sized site
    • Plan, implement, maintain, keep consistent, secure, and troubleshoot a small mixed (MS, Linux) network
    • Supervise assistants
    • Advise management on automation and purchases
    GET LPIC-2 CERTIFIED

    LPIC-3

    Senior Level Linux Certification

    The LPIC-3 Certification program represents the culmination of LPI's Certification Program.
    LPIC-3 is designed for the "enterprise-level" Linux professional. The program has been developed with the input of hundreds of Linux professionals from around the globe and with input from some of the world's leading technology companies. It also represents the highest level of professional, distribution-neutral Linux certification within the industry.

    Thank you. That is a whole ton of great info. I think I'm going to focus on development and security for Linux. Starting with Linux + sounds like one of the best routes seeing as I could probably pass it now with little studying. From there I think I'll move on to the Red Hat stuff and the LPI 2 along with some security. I've been working with C++ and Java, so I'm going to keep that up and eventually go for the Oracle cert in Java programming. With that kind of diversification, I think I could basically go for any job.

    If your goal is to be a software developer, I personally would not have advised going for any of those certs. Most of those certs are typically geared towards system administrators.

    Just bear in mind that hiring managers for developers typically are not going to care as much about those certs.

    I'm aware that those are mostly geared toward system admins. That's okay right now. I just need a job. Eventually I will be focusing on more development aspects, but this will be the first step on the road there. Even still, I may find that I really enjoy security or admin anyway. Since I'm not an expert programmer or anything right yet, I seriously doubt anyone would hire me to develop anything right yet.
