LPI = Linux Professional Institute

Quote from LPI website:

Professionalism and the Linux Community:

LPI was formally incorporated as a Canadian non-profit in October 25, 1999, and is headquartered near Toronto. We attempt to bring together an active and committed community with the companies and professionals who can fund and carry out LPI's initiatives. LPI is recognized worldwide as the premier organization advocating and assisting in the professional use of Linux, open source, and free software.


While LPI is working on a number of initiatives to accomplish the above goals, it is currently best known for its Linux skills certification exams. LPI's industry standard certifications are delivered in thousands of locations worldwide, in multiple languages and with the support of employers, vendors, and trainers.

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) serves the community of Linux and open source software users vendors and developers, in the interest of increasing and supporting professional use of such software throughout world.

Please read this about where to appear for LPI Test in Pakistan.

If there is more interest then we can work out some thing to help reduce the cost of taking LPI certification. At Present Students who [ Must be Graduate ] pass LPI Certification can get the fee reimbursed.[ If you fail in LPI it is your money if you pass it is free ]. Contact me if any one is interested.

There is no institute offering coaching for LPI [ at least not in my knowledge ].

IMHO for LPI - 1 and 2 one would be better off building a lab [ two/three used PC costing under 8000.00 ] and using it for learning and then selling of the computers once LPI test is cleared.

We can discuss specifics if you are interested.

opentech is in lahore, or used to be. they're near firdous market, where castech used to be.

moreover they have a useless website full of 404's

i wonder if that means that they don't even have any tech people to keep it updated.

Thanks Noman. I was wondering is there a way through which I can keep a tab on the number of RHCE in Pakistan?

I was hoping for much higher number then 14 I was aware of. This means most of the RH deployments are managed by non RHCE ? Looks to me a huge gap in market, I think more should go for RHCE.
