The Linux Essentials is a great foundation level certification to gain the basic understanding of Linux and computer systems. The perfect cert to get young people into Linux!

The LPIC Certification has helped UKFast to enhance the methods our engineers use to perform their jobs, and in turn has improved the speed of their development, productivity and the quality of support they are providing to our customers.

Linux Essentials is a great course for anyone wanting to brush up on their informal Linux knowledge or want to start learning Linux for the first time. Highly recommended.

I am pleased to commend the LPIC 1 certification as an essential starting point for any professional on a Linux based career path. At the UK Open University we have been pleased to link our introductory Linux academic module to the LPIC 1 as this has offered our students potential career enhancement.

I have held the LPIC 2 for a few years now and found it vital in my role as a Linux Sysadmin. I have even been an LPIC 2 trainer and really enjoyed passing on the more advanced topics to students. It is well structured and provides a good grounding in Linux and the more advanced Linux services.

I would recommend the LPI certification, as I was looking for some Linux course to give me a good basis in Linux, LPI certification seem to fit well. I also used the certification as a goal to keep me motivated, so now when I meet others who have completed LPI, Certification, have an appreciation of their skills.

Brian Kavanagh - Senior systems Test Engineer - EMC

I am a veteran of Linux+ and currently work in a RHEL centric telecoms environment. Many people who apply for positions do not have any tangible evidence of the desired level of knowledge and can often be found wanting. LPI certs cover a very wide range of Linux OS administration and protocols which reflects a good understanding of the OS.

Craig Smith

I studied LPI as I wanted to further my knowledge in Linux. The OS, our company’s platform is ran on, is CentOS. I was to be technical support, but had very little Linux experience. I took the LPI course to further my skills and knowledge and ultimately give myself a better position in my work. The company I work for is Davra Networks. We are provide a platform that allows customers to define, build and bring IoT (Internet of Things) applications. The benefits of having the LPI certification have been enormous for me in my work. My knowledge of Linux has increased a lot and now I am able to create test scripts to automate my testing. This has freed up more time for me and allows me to get on with other important tasks. That is just one of many benefits of having LPI cert in work.

The ubiquitous use of Linux in the world today on all types of devices has placed a demand on educational institutes to embed Linux / Open Source into their academic programmes. Schools use Raspberry PIs to teach computing and here at GCU Linux and Open Source tools are an important skill taught to students in a range of undergraduate courses, for example our undergraduate security programmes which prepare them for industry. We are extremely pleased to now partner LPI.

Yes, as a Linux Systems Operations Administrator, I can show my LPI certifications to show that I have a lot of professional experience working with Linux Servers. Certifications are very valuable when changing jobs.
