"Currently, there are vendor-neutral certifications in Linux available from two sources: LPI (Linux Professional Institute) and Sair. To become LPI certified at the first level -- the only one currently available -- you must pass a series of two exams. With Sair, to become certified as a Linux Certified Administrator (LCA), you must pass four exams (passing Installation and Configuration 101 by itself will earn you the designation of Linux Certified Professional).

This summer, CompTIA will add another Linux certification to the fray -- that of Linux+ (pronounced "Linux plus"). This is a one-exam certification -- good for life -- on vendor-neutral topics similar to the other two certifications. Beta testing began June 22nd and will continue for one month. The live exam is scheduled to appear later in the summer (most likely in September).

CompTIA is the Computing Technology Industry Association and is most well known for the A+ hardware certification (260,000+ certified). Other CompTIA certifications have followed in recent years -- all ending with the "plus" designation: Network+, i-Net+, and most recently Server+."
