Certification Exam

InfoSec Institute’s Linux+ course extensively prepares students for the Linux+ exams (LX0-103 and LX0-104), which consists of 150 multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions. IT professionals who earn their CompTIA Linux+ certification can receive the LPIC-1 from LPI.

Earning a Linux+ certification is the beginning of a path that will lead you to advanced, distribution-specific Linux certifications such as SUSE Certified Engineer. SUSE will now treat the LPIC-1 as a substitute requirement for the SCE 11/12 Engineer-level exams, with the LPIC-1 certification meeting the program requirement of an Administrator-level exam.

Post-Class Follow up and Support 

Even after the Boot Camp, we are to provide support, including:

  • Post-class Cisco expert mentoring
  • Post-class remote pod access (nominal fee)
  • Option to retake the class for up to a year (if still needing to attempt the exam)
