Yes, I got my LPI Linux Essentials certification!
As a network engineer I’m on Linux systems on a daily basis and therefor I think it is important to have basic skills of Linux as well.
On the the InfoSecurity.nl event I got the chance to subscribe for an paper basis exam for any of the LPI certifications. Since this certification track was new for me I started with the very basics, LPI Linux Essentials, also known as LPI-010.
If you subscribe for paper basis Linux exams via the LPI events, you can save some money as well. The LPI event exams are about 50% cheaper then the normal exams which are computer based at Pearson VUE Test centers. The only disadvantage of the paper basis exams is that you don’t have an immediate result. It normally takes about 3-4 weeks, in my case this was only 17 days.
Here you can find a nice Free Linux Essentials Training Manual I used for my exam preparations.
