Linux certifications allow Linux professionals to demonstrate formal training and expertise. While not required to begin or advance a Linux career, certifications can be helpful in putting your resume on the top of the pile. There are a variety of providers for Linux certifications. Linux Professional Institute offers a general certification, while Red Hat, SUSE and Oracle all have certifications custom to their Linux distributions.
