Cool A Preview of the updated Linux+ Exam has an article this week regarding the new 2004 objectives for CompTIA's Linux+ certification exam.

Examining the New Linux+ Certification August 2004
by Emmett Dulaney

Certifications on Linux just like those on any other operating system or product need to be updated regularly to keep their objectives and questions relevant in a changing world. This is true whether you are talking about entry-level or engineer-level certifications. Recognizing this, most vendors update their exams approximately every two to three years. Usually, they look at the objectives and see whether any have changed in relevance (either up or down) and whether topics should be added, reworded, or removed. Most of the time, these updates are more superficial than anything else.

The update underway for the Linux+ certification, however, is anything but cosmetic. To begin with, CompTIA is changing the expected level of experience they want the test taker to have with the operating system from "six months" to "six to twelve months". While that may not seem like a great deal on paper, consider that it is essentially doubling the amount of experience and moving this certification closer to the same ground covered by such other certifications as LPI's Level I.

Good luck!

AFAIK nothing should happen....the linux+ certification should not expire or need to be renewed (just like all of the CompTIA certs).
