Linux Professional Institute Certifications
Introduction:
The Linux Professional Institute is a non-profit organization that promotes the use of Linux and open-source software. They have developed a 3-level vendor neutral certification track for Linux administrators. As of 06/2010 LPI has awarded over 85,000 certifications. Their partnership with CompTIA is likely to further increase their numbers.

Editor's Notes:
LPI seems to be gaining steam in recent years and appears to be a very viable certification that is rapidly gaining respect. There are a reasonable amount of 3rd party preparation materials available unlike some of the other Linux certifications (SAIR being a good example of this).

Designations:
The table below outlines the various LPIC certifications:
