About our pricing

Linux Professional Institute (LPI) has substantially revised its exam pricing structure and the prices for many of our exams. These changes, which are largely leading to a decrease in price for LPI exams, come at a time when most of the world is going through inflationary pressures in the opposite direction.

Price changes come into effect January 1 2022, everywhere. 

LPI has maintained a policy of variable global pricing, because not all of the world has an equal economy, and living wages vary dramatically between countries. This year we have reviewed our prices and will be re-adjusting them, for the first time using the Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) developed by the United Nations Development Program. (Previously we used the standard Human Development Index.) Using the IHDI has led to a number of adjustments, mostly leading to price reductions that will make certification more affordable, and thus more accessible, to hundreds of millions.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve more of the world who are seeking careers in open source software, and joining our community to help more people worldwide to prove their skills and in support their professional development.
