    Which of these is of a higher level? From reading it seems that NCLP goes to a lighter higher level, while LPIC1 is more broader.

    I have a choice to do either and was wondering how they compare.

    Umm the LPIC covers general linux concepts while if im not mistaken the Novell one covers SuSe correct? If you going to be working on SuSe and you already have experience on Linux then i thino Novell is the way to go. if you serious about Linux admin and want to be certified then Red Hat and their RHCT and RHCE are the market leaders it seems.

    You're comparing 2 different certs aimed at different levels:

    LPIC1 = Junior Level Linux Professional

    Novell Cert Linux Pro = proves the skills needed to successfully administrate SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 in the data center.

    It would have been more useful to compare the LPIC1 to CLDA or the Linux+.
