    As it's very much a growing field I wondered if anyone here is looking at any Linux certifications?

    I want to get the Linux Essentials exam out of the way this year to make way for the Linux+/LPIC1 exam.

    Something I'd love to be good at but not sure I'd certify in it, but I'd deffo watch all of the videos. I know it had to happen but I was sad when ESX was no longer based on redhat as a lot of my memoried commands no longer work :(

    That price also includes the exam (at $300) so the training is $199. For an additional $16 you could sign up for the LinuxAcademy.com subscription and do a whole load more training (which includes the LFCS training).

    I forgot to add that you also have the Linux Essentials exam from LPI (it's what I am aiming for, then the Linux+/LPIC 1).

    In all honesty in my opinion, I wouldn't do any of these Linux certs as the go-to certs are the Red Hat ones, so I think it would be better to spend the money on these certs instead. The Red Hat certs are certainly more in demand.

    I work with Linux on a daily basis and my colleagues - the ones who are certified - only have Red Hat certs like RHCSA and RHCE.

    In all honesty I can see where you're coming from with that, the only reason I am suggesting things like LPIC1 and 2 is that I am seeing more people looking at those certifications.
