CompTIA Linux+ validates the competencies required of an early career system administrator supporting Linux systems.
The NEW Linux+ is now available!
The new CompTIA Linux+ is geared to teach the learner who will use Linux to manage everything from cars and smartphones to servers and supercomputers, as a vast number of enterprises use Linux in cloud, cybersecurity, mobile and web administration applications.
In the new CompTIA Linux+, candidates are only required to pass one exam for certification. However, the new certification is no longer eligible for the LPI 2-for-1 offer.
- CompTIA Linux+ is the only job-focused Linux certification covering the latest foundational skills demanded by hiring managers.
- Unlike other certifications, the new exam includes performance-based and multiple-choice questions to identify the employees who can do the job.
- The exam covers tasks associated with all major distributions of Linux, setting the foundation for advanced vendor/distro-specific knowledge.
CompTIA Linux+ Power by LPI will be available through October 1, 2019, at which time will retire and not be available. CompTIA Linux+ covers common tasks in major distributions of Linux, including the Linux command line, basic maintenance, installing and configuring workstations, and networking.
The two exams cover the following domains:
Hardware and System Configuration
Systems Operation and Maintenance
Linux Troubleshooting and Diagnostics
Automation and Scripting
Linux Installation and Package Management
GNU and Unix Commands
Devices, Linux Filesystems, and Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
Shells, Scripting and Data Management
