Ebook: Introducing the Linux Foundation’s LFCS and LFCE Certification Preparation Guide
For years, certifications in the Information Technology world have help job candidates to demonstrate their skills to potential employers.
In the Linux world this is as true as in any other area, with businesses primarily looking for certified candidates to fill their vacancies and meet their needs. In other words, certifications are a proven way of gaining an advantage when applying for a job.
Since August 2014 you don’t have to travel to a testing center and spend a lot of money in associated expenses to take a certification exam.
Thanks to the Linux Foundation, you can aspire to a world-class certification by taking a monitored on-line exam from the commodity of your own home.
The Linux Foundation Certified System administrator (LFCS) exam is more suited for individuals with intermediate level, whereas the LFCE (Engineer) exam is targeted at people with significant experience with network services and with a vast knowledge of system administration.
We at Tecmint.com have put together 32 articles covering the topics required in both exams, and reviewed them taking into consideration the many comments we have received over the last 18 months.
