Linux Foundation launches new entry-level IT certification

If you’re Linus Torvalds, you don’t need a certification to get a job. People know who you are. But most of us trying to get a start in technology need a certification. Now, The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit, open-source powerhouse organization, and Certiverse, a certification testing startup, have announced they’re working on a new entry-level IT certification offering: The Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate (LFCA).

The LFCA will show your expertise and skills in modern fundamental information technology. Note the word “modern,” this is not your dad’s entry-level IT certification. The focus is on Linux, system administration, and cloud computing, not on how to tune-up a PC or how to try to secure Windows. There’s still a place for people with those skills, but they’re going to top out in technical support rather than a high-paying, high-end IT job.  

The main domains and competencies that the LFCA will measure are:
