This LPIC-1 and CompTIA Linux+ certification course with Shawn Powers covers both exams that are required for dual certification.

The LPIC-1/CompTIA Linux+ course prepares learners to meet the objectives required for passing both the 101 and 102 exams that are required for certification. Topics range from initial system installation to advanced system management. Mastering the exam objectives allows students to attain both the LPI and CompTIA certifications simultaneously.

Note: Please note that while CompTIA and Linux Professional Institute have different exam names (LX0-103 and LX0-104, and 101 and 102, respectively) they are the same exams. You need to take either the CompTIA exams or the LPI exams to earn certification. When you pass your exams, you will earn certifications from both organizations. This course prepares you for both exams, regardless of which vendor you choose (either LPI or CompTIA). Learn more about the dual certification experience from our Roadmap to Success: CompTIA Linux+/LPIC-1.

Intro

00:00:00

Hello, everybody. I would like to welcome you to the Linux Professional Institute's LPIC-1 and CompTIA's Linux+ Certification Course, which has been updated for Version 4. My name is Shawn Powers. I'm going to be with you throughout this entire course.

00:00:16

I love Linux. I love the LPIC and Linux+ exams. I think it's a very thorough. It's very educational . But it's the kind of course that you can jump right into and learn a lot about Linux. Now, if you're here because you want to get certified, I have great news for you.

00:00:30

Whether you want to get certified for the LPIC-1 or Linux+ through CompTIA, all you have to do is take two tests. Now, unfortunately, the two companies have numbered the test differently. So, in order to get LPIC-1 certified, you have to take Exam 101, Version 4, and Exam 102, Version 4.

00:00:50

This course will prepare you for both of those exams. If you want to get Linux+ certified, you have to take Exam LX0-103 and Exam LX0-104. The awesome news is that these two tests are exactly the same. And I don't mean they look the same. I mean, if you take one, you're taking the other.

00:01:10

So these tests are the same as well. If you want to get LPIC-1 certified and Linux+ certified, all you have to do is make sure that you make that note when you're signing up to take the test that you want to take one test for each of these. So you still have to take two tests.

00:01:27

And you can get both certifications. It's a little confusing because of the different names that they call the tests, but, really, I assure you all you have to do is take two tests, and you can get two certifications. You do not have to take four tests.

00:01:41

So I urge you to get both. Because why wouldn't you get both certifications if you can do that, by taking this course and these two tests? This is an exciting course. I hope that you enjoy taking this course as much as I enjoyed putting it together and going through the process.

00:01:56

It's going to be a fun trip. I just can't wait to get started. So let's get started. Let's start on the next Nugget right now.
