We Recommend LPI Certification

The Open University

I am pleased to commend the LPIC 1 certification as an essential starting point for any professional on a Linux based career path. At the UK Open University we have been pleased to link our introductory Linux academic module to the LPIC 1 as this has offered our students potential career enhancement.


Curriculum managers need to take on Vendor qualifications so that they can meet increasing demands that organisations pose on their graduates.

Through Linux Essentials it is possible to teach concepts of programming via the Power Shell interface. It gives learner’s access to both GUI and command line interfaces, students will gain in depth understanding of Networking concepts and Hardware components.


I did this course as a validation of my knowledge, as I work with Debian-based NAS products every day. I’ve learned a lot about the low level stuff and the why (which makes remembering it much easier for me). I can recommend this for anyone starting a career in Linux, as it introduces you and prepares you for different flavours of Linux very well.
