Professional Institute (LPI) Level 1 and CompTIA Linux+
certifications. Caldera's certifications offer IT professionals the

certifications will increase tremendously the value they provide to
their organizations. Additionally, they will find more diverse job
opportunities and gain competitive advantages through these
highly-developed competencies," said David Acheson, director of
Education Services, Caldera. "Our tracks are industry-standardized,
which is critical to today's IT professionals and employers when it
comes to Linux and UNIX expertise."
Because of the synergy between Linux and UNIX, shell programming
has been added to the ACE certification track. Caldera?s Linux
track adopts industry-standard certifications and incorporates the
latest courseware, including the recently announced Caldera
OpenLearning Courseware for Linux. All Caldera OpenLearning
Providers around the globe are equipped to help certification

industry standards," said Chuck Mead, president, LPI. "The
inclusion of LPI industry-standard certifications into their
certification tracks exponentially benefits the education of the
students and IT professionals involved."
While CSA and ACE candidates can certify to be either Linux or
UNIX competent, Master ACE graduates will prove both Linux and UNIX
competencies, in accordance with industry-standard education.
"Considering how complementary Linux and UNIX technologies are,
Caldera is ingenious for offering a certification track that
qualifies candidates to operate in both," said Brian Lewis, Linux
and UNIX instructor and owner of Shogomoc Systems in Minneapolis,
Minn. "Intense, yet worth the effort from both instructor and
