Annoucements: New Pages – Linux Certifications / Training

https://i0.wp.com/images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb62191/degrassi/images/thumb/b/b2/The_more_you_know.gif/200px-0,400,26,226-The_more_you_know.gifStarted a page under the Resources tab above, for information on Linux Certifications to help those seeking certification/accreditation.  I started this out of interest for tests that don’t cost 1000+ USD, as I can’t afford many of those.  Hopefully this helps people looking for tests.  Also started, was a training section for those seeking training.  Enjoy!

Linux Certifications: Linux Professional Insitute

https://i1.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/af/Tux.png/220px-Tux.pngI have been in search of not just online training, but certifications for Linux.  You know, so I can flash a paper in peoples faces like a big boy haha.  Well, one low-cost, but accredited certification is the LP-1 certification from the Linux Professional Institute.   Test costs are in the range of 150 to 200 USD, which is far less than Linux Foundation, Redhat tests and the like that go into the 1000+ USD range.  Below is some useful information.  Enjoy!
