Linux Certification FAQ

How long does certification last?

In the past most Linux certifications had no expiration date or continuing certification requirements, but that has been changing of late. Red Hat certification is version specific, but upgrading for new versions is not required in order to retain certification. Novell follows a similar pattern. CompTIA recently added continuing requirements for some of its certifications, and although Linux+ was not on the initial list, it is likely to be added in the future. LPI requires recertification every 5 years.
