Linux Foundation offers new certification

On ZDNet this week, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols covers the news on the Linux Foundation introducing new certifications. With continuing demand for Linux professionals, HR departments look for degrees and certifications. In reponse, the Linux Foundation announced a new certification program at LinuxCon. The program applies to "both early-career and engineer-level systems administrators." As reported by Vaughan-Nichols, the program is virtual, available anytime, anywhere in the world. The program is performance-based and distribution-flexible. Equally important, "the Linux Foundation certifications are designed to be complementary to Red Hat and the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) certifications."
