Talking with a friend of mine I told him that LPI certifications validates a couple of Novell0’s certifications which in deed are just an incentive to continue the certification program Novell itself has. One of these certifications is the Novell(R) Certified Linux Administrator and the other one is the Data Center Technical Specialist.
How can I get those certifications?
When you get the LPIC-1 go to the Novell’s web site to include you LPI account info, therefore Novell will send you these certifications in digital (PDF format). Then my advice is to apply for CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI that have a agreement with the Linux Professional Institute to get your LPIC-1 , and then validate your LPI account info at Novell’s to get these two extra certifications.
