Linux Essentials exam available on OnVUE in Spanish

Candidates can now take their Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Linux Essentials exam in Spanish online. LPI has been offering its Linux Essentials and LPIC-1 exams in English through the Pearson VUE OnVUE testing system since 31 May 2020. Further languages are being added since then. LPIC-1 exams are available online in Spanish since February 2021.

“Since I joined LPI in 2020 we have been receiving requests from our partners and the Latin American community to have it available in Spanish, this will allow many candidates to take the exam without the fear of doing it in a language different from the one they know. Today we complete the combo of Linux Essentials Learning Materials and Exam in Spanish for the whole community,” said Juan Ibarra, Partner Success Manager at Linux Professional Institute.

A note for the candidates

The OnVUE online proctoring platform is available in the English language only, and is monitored by proctors who can be expected to understand English. Candidates are expected to have a quiet, private location, a reliable computer with a camera, and a stable Internet connection. Currently, only the Windows and MacOS operating systems are supported. As a Linux certification body, we understand that many of our applicants prefer the system they have been studying and working with. We will continue to encourage Pearson VUE to make OnVUE testing available on Linux systems too.
