I have been conducting a certification course for Novell Certified Linux Professional and a question pop'ed up from one of the participants. What's the value of a Linux certification? There are basically 3 bodies that provide some form of certification, Redhat, Novell (SuSE) and the distribution independent body the Linux Professional Institute. Does certification mean that you have the necessary skills to administer a Linux server?
It is question that can be easily answered by stating that a certification gives employers and clients the confidence that the person working on their Linux server has sufficient good working knowledge to do so. It will be interesting to obtain more information from readers on your options on Linux certifications.
