LPI-LogoWelcome to these, the Linux Professional Institute or LPI, pages from The Urban Penguin. We are an Approved LPI Training Partner and can provide free training via these videos or if you prefer to work direct with the penguin, we can offer online training at a reasonable cost. You of course may choose a little of both; either way you know you are gaining the training without the overheads of having to be away from home or work. The training happens online via a device close to you.

The LPI courses represent a distribution agnostic approach and aim to equip you with being able to manage Linux not just a single distribution. Much like in driving a car you do not have to learn to drive a particular model or make. The LPI and The Urban Penguin are both committed to the promotion of Linux through greater awareness and learning whilst maintaining the ethos of community and sharing. The video guides are free and supported through extensive notes on the associated pages. The online training costs to you are kept to as low as possible whilst maintaining small class sizes so you can really participate in the class; access to labs and PDF manuals are supplied.

Being well acquainted and qualified in many Linux distributions and Unix systems Andrew is more than capable of explaining the differences and getting you up to speed with managing all flavours of Linux.

The LPI or Linux Professional Institute has offered vendor neutral certification in Linux since 1999. With such a history this represents a mature certification that is well recognised world-wide.

They offer certifications in Linux starting with Linux Essentials and then moving up the levels of system administration certification from LPIC-1 through to LPIC-3. Linux Essentials is a professional development certification demonstrating your broad understanding of Linux and Open Source.

Studying for the Linux Essentials will make a great foundation for your administration career in Linux. Enabling a gentle start into Linux and the command line. Many Colleges and Universities include this certification as part of general computing courses ensuring a grounding in Linux. There is a single exam requirement in gaining the Linux Essentials certification

Both the LPIC-1 and LPIC-2 require two exams for each qualification and LPIC-2 requires that you already have the LPIC-1 qualification. For LPIC-3 which represents specialisations in Linux the is one exam per speciality. To gain and LPIC-3 certification you will need LPIC-2.
