CompTIA Linux+

CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI certifies foundational skills and knowledge of Linux system administration. With Linux being the central operating system for much of the world’s IT infrastructure, Linux+ is an essential credential for individuals working in IT.


Linux has grown into an industry-leading software and service delivery platform that is used for everything from super computers and Web servers to virtualized systems and your Android phone. This growth creates a high demand for qualified Linux professionals. With CompTIA’s Linux+ Powered by LPI certification, you’ll acquire the fundamental skills and knowledge you need to successfully configure, manage and troubleshoot Linux systems.

Linux+ keeps you relevant
The Linux footprint continues to grow. In addition to its significant presence in the server room, all the major public cloud providers offer Linux images as a way of speeding up virtual instance creation. Add on that Linux-based Android accounts for approximately 80% of the smartphone market and you’ll find many IT careers are founded on Linux skills.

Linux+ is widely recognized
Large organizations such as the U.S. Navy, Dell, HP, BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Department of Defense employ CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI certified IT professionals.

Linux+ is your stepping stone for higher goals
IT professionals who earn their CompTIA Linux+ certification can receive the LPIC-1 from LPI. Earning a Linux+ certification is the beginning of a path that will lead you to advanced, distribution-specific Linux certifications such as SUSE Certified Engineer.
