Recently, the Organization of Linux has announced the development of a new certification, which will be the initial part of the LFCS (Linux Foundation Certified Sysadmin) and LFCE (Linux Foundation Certified Engineer) certifications. According to announcement, the new certification is made especially for users who have just started using Linux systems.
Its main purpose is to prove the basic knowledge of the user in the management of systems. However, today we live in a world where technology is evolving daily and new systems are being created non-stop. Therefore, to get this certification, the user must have knowledge of many of the basic systems that are based on Linux.
The following is a list of some of the topics covered by the new certification:
- Basic steps in the system.
- System management.
- Cloud services.
- Basic knowledge in security.
- Collaboration with other managers.
However, because certification targets the initial stage, the users they have to pass only one examination. This means that if you are already a Linux user, you will not be trained to get it.
Right now, the organization provides the certifications by following the following:
Basic Steps in Linux (LFS101) - Tutorials
Basic steps in systems management (LFS201) - Courses
Basic System Operator Certification (LFCS) - Certification
Linux Network Management (LFS211) - Courses
Engineer Certification (LFCE) - Certification
New LFCA certification was designed to fit between LFS101 and LFS201 courses. Thus, the candidates will have a basic certification, if for some reason they stop attending their courses.
In addition, according to the organization, the number of candidate engineers has increased significantly, due to the global pandemic. This was because several of the users decided to attend classes during it lockdown.
Therefore, even if they decide to drop out of the course, the candidates will have at least one basic certification.
