The new CompTIA Linux+ certification is designed for IT professionals who will use Linux to manage everything from cars and smartphones to servers and supercomputers, as many businesses use Linux in cloud, cybersecurity, mobile, and web administration applications.
Candidates for the new CompTIA Linux+ certification must only pass one exam.
The new certification, however, is no longer eligible for the LPI 2-for-1 offer.
The CompTIA Linux+ certification is the only job-focused Linux certification that covers the most recent foundational skills required by hiring managers.
Unlike other certifications, the new exam includes performance-based and multiple-choice questions to identify employees who are capable of performing the job.
The exam covers tasks associated with all major Linux distributions, laying the groundwork for advanced vendor/distro knowledge.
CompTIA Linux+ focuses on common tasks in major Linux distributions, such as the Linux command line, basic maintenance, installing and configuring workstations, and networking.
