NOVELL Certification Partnership

LPI is pleased to announce that holders of LPIC certifications are now eligible to apply for and receive the Novell Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) certification at no additional cost or exams.

This initiative is the result of a new partnership agreement between Novell and LPI. Under this program those Linux professionals who have earned their LPIC-1 status will also have satisfied the requirements for the Novell Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) certification. To further support this initiative Novell Training Services has formally agreed to include the required LPIC-1 learning objectives in its CLA course training material.

To apply for your Novell CLA, please fill out the required form at Novell. You will need to provide your LPI ID, verification code, name and contact information.

All LPI alumni are able to validate their LPIC status by providing their LPI ID and verification code.

Please refer back to this page for further information on the availability of Novell training programs which are based on LPIC-1 objectives for self study, on demand, and partner-led classroom training.

LPI alumni will know that LPI has worked with Novell for a number of years on exam development and that Novell provided an initial industry endorsement of our LPIC-3 program.

This new partnership with Novell further demonstrates that LPIC-1 is the industry standard in Linux certification and confirms LPI’s longstanding position that LPI certification qualifies IT professionals to work on any Linux distribution.

* This program initiative with Novell and their CLA certification is not available to LPI candidates in Japan
