Linux Professional Institute (LPI) launches new LPIC-3 exams

There are multiple ways to get certified in Linux. One of the better known certifications are the LPIC-1, LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 certifications. These certifications can be obtained by successfully completing the relevant exams (there are multiple exams to take in order to obtain one of these certifications).

Now the LPIC-3 exams have been renewed to cover up to date topics such as LXC, Docker, Ceph or FreeIPA to name a few. The Linux Professional Institute therefore asks for beta "testers", taking the exam and give feedback afterwards with a survey. The exam will be counted as a regular exam, therefore renewing your existing LPIC-3 or achieve LPIC-3 if you hold a LPIC-2 certification.

Holders of an active LPIC-2 or LPIC-3 certification can apply to take part in the beta exams. The cost of a beta exam is $25 (USD) and the exams will be performed online using Pearson Vue's OnVUE platform.

Due to limited availability – only 175 candidates will be accepted per exam – not all applications will be considered.
