Junior Level Linux Certification (LPIC-1)

The Junior Level Linux Certification (LPIC-1) proves your system administration skills using the Linux operating system and its associated tools.

It's a valuable qualification for Helpdesk or IT Support staff.

This certification shows you can perform maintenance tasks with the command line, install and configure a workstation, and configure a basic network. The certification program is distribution-neutral, so your knowledge of any standard Linux system will be verified.

This Skillsoft course will train you in everything you need to know to pass the exams for the LPIC-1 certification. You'll need to sit the exams separately.
