SUSE Certification Partnership

LPI is pleased to announce that holders of LPIC certifications are eligible to apply for and receive the SUSE Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) certification at no additional cost or exams.

This initiative is the result of a partnership agreement between SUSE and LPI. Under this program those Linux professionals who have earned their LPIC-1 status will also have satisfied the requirements for the SUSE Certified Linux Administrator (CLA) certification. To further support this initiative SUSE Training Services has formally agreed to include the required LPIC-1 learning objectives in its CLA course training material.

To apply for your SUSE CLA, please fill out the required form at Novell. You will need to provide your LPI ID, verification code, name and contact information.

All LPI alumni are able to validate their LPIC status by providing their LPI ID and verification code.

Please refer back to this page for further information on the availability of SUSE training programs which are based on LPIC-1 objectives for self study, on demand, and partner-led classroom training.

LPI alumni will know that LPI has worked with SUSE for a number of years on exam development and that SUSE provided an initial industry endorsement of our LPIC-3 program.

This partnership with SUSE further demonstrates that LPIC-1 is the industry standard in Linux certification and confirms LPI's longstanding position that LPI certification qualifies IT professionals to work on any Linux distribution.

* This program initiative with SUSE and their CLA certification is not available to LPI candidates in Japan
