The Linux+ credential is an entry-level, distribution-neutral certification that proves the ability to install, configure, manage, network, support and operate Linux based environments. The vendor neutrality of Linux makes this certification ideal for Technicians working in an Open System environment.
CompTIA’s Linux+ is the only certification track that provides a 3-in-1 path: by becoming Linux+ certified, the technician will also receive the LPI (Linux Professional Institute) Level 1 (LPIC-1), and the Novell SUSE Desktop Support Technician designations. Organizations such as Hewlett-Packard, Novell, IBM, Sun Microsystems, Dell, and Xerox recommend or require Linux+.
Technical Role Examples: Systems Administrator, Junior Linux Administrator, Junior Network Administrator, Linux Database Administrator and Web Administrator
