First Ubuntu Linux certifications held at LinuxWorld SA

By   |  May 18, 2006

Six South Africans were this afternoon the first candidates worldwide to write the brand new Ubuntu Professional certification. They wrote the exams, backed by the Linux Professional Association (LPI), during the LinuxWorld show in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The Ubuntu Professional certification is an extension to the LPI level 1 exams. Candidates are required to pass the LPI 101 and 102 as well as the LPI 199 (Ubuntu) certifications to have achieved the qualification.

The Ubuntu certification has been jointly developed by the LPI and Canonical, with examination questions being developed by South African Linux professionals.

South African Ubuntu derivative Impi Linux’s Adi Attar says Ubuntu Professional is a welcome addition to the certification market because it contributes to growing the local Linux skills market as well as broadening the Ubuntu skills available.

Attar says that unlike many other distribution-specific qualifications the Ubuntu Professional qualification ensures that people have certified generic Linux skills as well as Ubuntu-specific abilities.

LPI level 1 certificate holders are competent to administrate any version of Linux, she says. Adding to that the Ubuntu Professional qualification “eliminates the extra learning curve needed to manage Ubuntu-based computers”.

    I originally got my LPIC-1 Certification when Suse had a program to add a Suse Professional Certification to the LPIC-1. But Novell canceled that program so I will go with Ubuntu Certification instead. Novell has ruined every product they have ever bought, and they will run Suse into the ground eventually. Just give them time.
