Two days ago, the Linux Foundation announced a new certification program.
It consists in two exams:
Both exams are performance-based exam in English lasting 2 hours focusing on system administration and costing $300 ($50 until 24/8).
Candidates can choose between 3 Linux distributions (CentOS 6.4, OpenSUSE 13.1 and Ubuntu 14.04) before the beginning of the exam.
Compared to the RHCSA6 exam, the new LFCS exam on Centos 6.4 requires additional sudo, backup/restore and Raid configuration skills.
Similarly, compared to the RHCE6 exam, the new LFCE exam on CentOS 6.4 requires additional Apache SSL, Squid and IMAP/IMAPS configuration skills.
Time will tell us if this new Linux Foundation certification program can get some success.
