LFCE Exam Presentation

Here you will find resources (tutorials, book review, quiz, sample exams, etc) about the LFCE (Linux Foundation Certified Engineer) exam for RHEL 6 / CentOS 6.

You can use this website like a study guide if you’ve got already some basic Linux experiences.

The exam is a performance-based exam in English lasting 2 hours, focusing on design and implementation of system architecture. The pass mark is 72%. One free retake per exam purchase is granted. It must be taken within 12 months of the date of the original exam purchase.

You need to choose between 3 Linux distributions (CentOS 6.4, OpenSUSE 13.1 and Ubuntu 14.04) before the beginning of the exam.

A webcam, a microphone and the Chrome browser are required. A compatibility check tool is available.

You can take the exam in any quiet location. Your session will be remotely monitored by a proctor.

The exam may be scheduled anytime within 12 months of purchase. The cost of the exam is $300 and is valid for 2 years.

By achieving or renewing a higher-level certification, you automatically extend the validity of your lower-level certification (typically LFCS).

All the exam details are available in the candidate handbook.
