For the next eight weeks, anyone interested in demonstrating that he or she has the equivalent of six to 12 months of experience with the latest Linux applications can do so for $75 by passing the CompTIA Linux+ beta exam.

CompTIA Linux+, which according to a recent survey by CRN magazine is the fastest growing vendor-neutral certification in the solutions provider sales channel, is being significantly updated. More than 75 percent of the topics covered and knowledge required to pass the current exam are being changed in the new version to reflect an expanding range of Linux job tasks.

“The revised Linux+ exam is a great way for individuals to validate foundational Linux skills and prepare the ground for career advancement,” said Gene Salois, vice president, Certification, CompTIA. “The revised Linux+ exam is right on target for demonstrating current job skills and the beta exam gives those who have the necessary experience a bargain-price means of validating knowledge mastery through a valuable and respected vendor-neutral certification.”

Those passing the CompTIA Linux+ 2004 exam will demonstrate knowledge mastery required to provide basic installation, operation, security, administration, and troubleshooting services for the Linux operating system on workstations and servers. Roughly 19 percent of the 2004 Linux+ exam covers installation, 20 percent configuration, 26 percent management and maintenance, 21 percent security, six percent documentation, and eight percent Linux hardware.

Certification candidates are encouraged to sign up online as soon as possible for the CompTIA Linux+ beta exam with either the Pearson VUE or Thomson Prometric testing organizations, referencing exam ID # XK1-002.

CompTIA urges candidates to carefully review the certification objectives prior to taking the exam and to use the objectives as an effective content study guide. Linux+ objectives and exam related information, including links to Pearson VUE and Thomson Prometric are posted on the CompTIA website.
