dear all
            I'm newbie in the world of linux and I love to get deeper and learn more and more about the linux environment and I searchd and found that there are two certificates RHCE and LPI and all I could guess is that LPI is for learning Linux in general and be able to deal with any version mandrek suzy redhat and so

BUT RHCE is dedicated only for RedHat

is this correct and what is the main feature of each certificate and which more important than the other one

thanks in advance  


I found by seatching the following

-------------------
RHCE is a performance-based certification. We break the machine, you
fix it, all under under terrible time pressure. RHCE isn't a test of
"what do you know", or "what can you figure out" (in fact, full on-line
documentation is available during most of the test), but instead RHCE is a
"is the solution in your mental working set? is it second-nature for you?".

LPI is a memorization test with multiple guess (er, I mean "choice").

RHCE requires more in depth professional and practical knowledge. LPI is suitable for new guys. To my point an RHCE will face no difficulty in configuring a machine in some different linux flavor since all flavors have same base.

the RHCE is a practical exam which needs at lease 1 to 2 years of experience
but the LPI includes many levels but all of them are written..btw if you like the Suse distribution you can work on the NCLP.

the RHCE and NCLP nearly they are the same (both require to pass a practical exam and both need at least 1 year of experience also both of them are hard to pass easily)..but the point is the cost as the RHCE exam is very expensive but the NCLP is very cheap.

so (in my opinion) if you want to start with linux then start on working with:

NCLA>>Novell Certified Linux Administrator
NCLP>>Novell Certified Linux Engineer

for more infor regarding the Novell certifcations read this article:

http://certcollection.org/forum/thread-2284.html

Note: you can sit directly for the NCLP without passing the NCLA and in case you pass you will earn the NCLA certification as well.
Note2: These are Linux OS exams not Novell netware systems.
Note3: The NCLA cost around 50$$ and NCLP around 70$$

Hi
As you said that you are new to lunix, i think you must do LPI so that you can know the basics.

Hi.

thats right that RHCE is much more dificult than the other Linux certidication. But if you dont work in a
enterprise enviroment LPI is the better choice because Red Hat is very expensive in the support. And yes
you can get similar function with Cent OS or Fedora but without support isn`t   it a solution for business needs.

My Suggestion is if one has opportunity then one must avail better opportunity RHCE is harder but end of the days RHCE is well known myself practical exams are better than written exams.

No comparison between two of those when we consider the amount of time and effort spent on preparations.
RHCE requires a  lot more applied RHEL distro experience while the LPI itself is somehow generally oriented ;)
