Ubuntu Certification Announced

Filed under
Ubuntu

The Linux Professional Institute, the world's premier Linux certification organization, and Canonical Ltd., sponsor of the award-winning Ubuntu operating system, jointly announced the development of a certification exam for the Ubuntu distribution.

“We have long considered LPIC-1 to be the entry-level professional certification for all Linux distributions. This collaborative initiative with Ubuntu clearly demonstrates how Linux software developers can leverage our existing distribution-neutral program to create professional certification programs for their own software packages,” said Jim Lacey, President and CEO of the Linux Professional Institute. Mr. Lacey added that they were open to similar approaches from other distributions.

Jane Silber, a spokesperson for Canonical Ltd., the company which is the overall sponsor of Ubuntu, said that the certification was in response to extensive demand from both individuals and enterprises.
