New Exams Launched for CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI Certification

The exams include up-to-date content on Linux technologies in cloud environments, data centers, security, and more.

CompTIA has launched new exams for the CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI certification, an internationally recognized credential that validates technical competencies required for junior-level Linux administrators.†

The new exams include up-to-date content on changes in core Linux technologies and processes used by Linux administrators. This includes developments related to IPv6, the increased use of Linux in cloud-based environments, a heightened emphasis on security, and additional troubleshooting skills.††

“Linux is now embedded into IT; it’s part of the tool kit,” says James Stanger, senior director, product management, CompTIA. “Most ‘hot jobs’ in today’s IT workforce directly involve or are closely related to Linux.”††

CompTIA partnered with vendor-independent Linux certification organization, Linux Professional Institute (LPI), to develop the exam. Because of this relationship, IT professionals who earn the certification can apply to be recognized as LPIC1 and SUSE Certified Linux Administrator certified. †

Individuals must pass two exams to become CompTIA Linux+ certified. It’s recommended that candidates for the certification should be CompTIA A+ and Network+ certified, with at least 12 months of on-the-job Linux administration experience. Complete exam objectives are available at

Courseware and test preparation materials for the new exam will be available in the coming weeks from a number of CompTIA authorized content partners, including Kaplan, Linux Academy, Logical Operations, ≠McGraw Hill, MeasureUp, Pearson Education, and Wiley-Sybex.
