Certification in Unix/Linux


I am new to this forum and new to the Unix/Linux community. I have worked in Linux in past , but that was few years back. I want to increase my knowledge in Unix and for that I want to give some certification, which would cover shell scripting , unix commands etc..
Purpose of giving certification is that as Unix itself is wide, it will help me do some focussed study, learn and apply that knowledge.

You can say I am a novice in Unix/Linux field.
Please suggest some certification which would help achieve me the same.

If I have posted this in an incorrect forum, please forward me to the correct forum.

Looking forward for your valuable suggestions.

Hello and welcome to LQ. For beginners, the Linux+ and LPI level 1 certifications are a good starting point. Once you have got a lot more experience, you can try the Redhat Certified Technician or Redhat Certified Engineer certifications.

By the way, the LQ rules prohibit posting the same question in different threads. Its just easy to follow a discussion if everything is in one place.

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) exams are a good place to start. They are available in most places, relatively inexpensive (just over $100 per exam, 2 exams per qualification, currently 2 levels - 3rd is in development).

They are also vendor neutral, so you'll need to know some rpm, and some debian for the first exam, but it doesn't tie you into any specific distro.
