Re: linux certifications

Hi shyam singh bisht ï¼

RHCE/RHCT from Redhat
RHCA from Redhat

CLP from Novell


I consider RHCA is the best certification.:)
However, I like Novell SuSE linux. I will try CLP test.
I suggest you join RHCE certification. It's popular.

just for fun

Re: linux certifications

Red Hat is the 800 pound gorilla of the business. Their certification will probably be the most valuable to one's career.

But, the real test is hands on experience with the OS.

I have no certification whatsover, but four years of hard knocks experience administering a server farm that is exposed to the public Internet.

I'd match that experience against a piece of paper any day.

Re: linux certifications

I agree with SEP, here in the UK there are many exam centres offering LPI, however employers are only interested in RHCE/A.

I took a good look at LPI and think it more in depth and gerneic the RHCE, however a lot of the material deals with 2.3/4 kernels, and utilities such as ipchains, that are all but defunct.

I would say if you want to further your career, go Redhat. If you want kudos, and have a lot of time, go LPI.
