I recently passed CompTIA’s Linux+. One of the first questions on the examinations is something like “Do you want to forward your scores to LPI?” Might as well say “Yes!”, since passing the 2 Linux+ exams automatically qualifies you for the Linux Professional Institute’s LPIC-1.
It’s easy, and almost automatic.
- Register as a candidate with LPI. This is free. You will get an LPI ID number. Do this BEFORE you take the CompTIA Linux+ exams.
- Schedule your CompTIA exams.
- At the beginning of each exam, make sure you select “Forward my scores to LPI.”
That’s it! It’s easy. LPI is notified quickly- It took 2 days for CompTIA to award Linux+after I passed the exams and LPI sent me notice of LPIC-1 on the same day.
