Question Slackware - Courses and certification


I am in a unique and delicate position to support Slackware as a server side platform at my workplace (have been using it as such for many years and fought to defend it against pressure to switch to RHEL or others).
A newer requirement has come up to request that we submit courses attended and certifications received. And as such it has been pointed out to me that I can continue to support my work with Slackware if I can provide such documents on my behalf.

Honestly 99% of what I know is hard won experience over the years, but it lacks a piece of paper to acknowledge it.

I know of a single IT company that offers support services for Slackware in my country (Romania), but does not offer anything in the field of training.

Since then I've been searching for courses, both domestic and online, yet I've come up mostly empty handed.

What I am looking for is a course that either says on it's attedance certificate that it was done on Slackware, that it was specifically for Slackware Linux, or a Linux certification exam and diploma that explicitly says that it applies to Slackware (among optionally others).

Does anyone know of such training resources?

LPIC 1, 2 and 3 exams are distribution-neutral.

I don't think it's distribution netral since they only cover Debian and RPM and YUM package management plus there's systemd as well, but much better than RHEL which is specifically for Red Hat.

You might also want to take a look at the CompTIA Linux+ exam.
