By 2015-04-098月 22nd, 2017Blog

LeaderboardBecoming a Linux Foundation Certified Engineer is a challenging achievement and a good indicator of your sysadmin and network admin skills. And with the Linux job market stronger than ever, companies are looking for Linux talent to hire. So here are five reasons why you should consider sitting for the LFCE exam:

  1. Employers prefer certifications when making hiring decisions. The Linux Jobs Report found that 44% of hiring managers would be more likely to hire a candidate with a Linux certification, and more than 50% expect to see some sort of Linux certification or formal training.

  2. According to a United States government report, people with certifications make more money.

  3. Prove your chops. This exam is challenging – in fact, even some of our top kernel maintainers found it challenging! So we’ve released a new leaderboard that we’re updating weekly so you can test yourself against the best Linux has to offer. 

  4. If you’re already an RHCE or LPIC-2 or -3, try yourself out on another distro and demonstrate your versatility.

  5. We’re announcing a special sale on our Linux Foundation Certified Engineer exam. The exam, normally priced at $300, will be 50% off ($150) for a limited time. Just sign up – no coupon code needed.
