LPIC-1 exams available online in Spanish

In 2020, Linux Professional Institute (LPI) started offering its certification exams online. Since then, the exam development team has been working hard to offer these online exams in different languages as well. In addition to English and Japanese, the LPIC-1 exams are now available online in Spanish.

For some time, candidates for Linux certification have been able to take the first-level exams, LPIC-1, in Spanish. But to do so, candidates needed to travel to test centers or other places where exams are held. This is difficult for people outside major urban centers, and dangerous in many regions following the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Today LPI announces the availability of LPIC-1 exams in Spanish online from a home, workplace, or college, through the Pearson VUE OnVUE testing system.

The mission of LPI is to promote the use of open source by supporting the people who work with it. As part of this mission, it has expanded test-taking in two important ways: by translating exams and Learning Materials into more and more languages, and by offering them online to give more and more people around the world the chance to take them.
