Training for Certification
I'm relatively new to Linux. Although I know a few commands (from rote usage in my job), I don't understand all the intricate stuff (file structures, samba shares, etc.). I have started taking training for certification via the exams from LPI (Linux Professional Institute).
Is this a good entity to receive certification from? I know that are several available; however, with my limited budget, I can't afford Red Hat certification. Not to mention the fact that Red Hat isn't the end-all and be-all of Linux. I've done one or two CentOS installations (via the graphical interface) and those went pretty well. But everything was by default because I don't know what would be needed to perform a custom install nor have I done anything major from the command line other than daily tasks that I have been taught.
Can anyone let me know if I'm on the correct path or not?
Thanks in advance.
