Canonical Ltd, the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, today announced it has partnered with LynuxTraining to develop the first dedicated Ubuntu training courses for the 'Ubuntu Certified Professional' status. UCP is a training certification based on the LPI level 1 certification.
This move is towards getting into enterprise market.
The Ubuntu Certified Professional is a training certification based on the LPI level 1 certification. To earn the Ubuntu Professional certification, candidates are required to pass the LPI 101, LPI 102 and the Ubuntu (LPI 199) exams. Exams can be written in any order. A candidate already holding a valid LPI level 1 certification will only be required to pass the Ubuntu exam.
The certification is designed for System Administrator levels and tests the candidate's ability to:
=> Perform easy maintenance tasks: help out users, add users to a larger system, backup & restore, shutdown & reboot
=> Install and configure a workstation (including X) and connect it to a LAN, or a stand-alone PC via modem to the Internet.
=> Work with the Linux command line etc
