Your basic Guide to Linux certification

The CompTIA Linux+/LPIC-1 certification is designed to affirm learner’s skills and knowledge to:

•work at the Linux command line;
•perform easy maintenance tasks including assisting users, adding users to a larger system, executing backup & restore, shutdown & reboot; and,
•install and configure a workstation and connect it to a LAN, or a stand-alone PC via modem to the Internet.

The Linux+ certification is made up of two exams, each of which carries varying names/identification, depending on which vendor a learner chooses. ABCO Technology provides training that thoroughly covers the exam content:
•CompTIA Linux+: LX0-103 and LX0-104
•LPIC: 101 and 102

Typically, learners pursuing these certifications should have a basic familiarity with Linux, and the ability to create and manage virtual machines. These certifications are considered to be entry-level, so they are appropriate for learners who are fairly new to the information technology industry.
