The Linux Institute: A community project to develop professional certification for Linux

“A group of people (myself included) have been working for some
months, on a program that would allow Linux skills to be certified
by a community body — like the Novell CNE scheme, but with
differences that make it uniquely Unix-like. This project is now
ready to go public, asking for further community support while it
refines the program.

“Note: we are fully aware of the debate, in which one side
claims Linux does not need certification at all. We are fully aware
that this program is not for everyone, but that it attempts to
serve that portion of the Linux community to which certification is
important. We believe the existence of a trusted certification
program will increase Linux’s acceptance within the business
computing mainstream.” — Evan Leibovitch
