LFCS / LFCE recertification?

Has anyone recertified their LFCS or (especially) LFCE? I was wondering if anyone could share specific examples of what they used as continuing education.

    I hadn't considered their CE requirements until now. They do seem a little vague on the details:
      Approved Continuing Education activities include:
      • Non-entry level training courses from The Linux Foundation’s Developer and/or Enterprise curriculum.
      • Non-entry training from a Linux Foundation Authorized Training Partner or from an established Linux training provider such as SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, Linux Academy, IBM, HP, Guru Labs and other similar programs.

      I get the feeling that they haven't finalised the details yet (include, other similar programs). I guess that the easiest path is to do courses on Linux Foundation website, for example the OpenStack or DevOps training, but then I have no idea how a self paced course would be measured in terms of CE hours.

      Thanks for the response. I will see if I can get in touch with someone at Linux Foundation. I have a few months before it expires so it is not urgent yet.

      Wondering about this too. Seems to me like doing the LFS 211 Linux Networking and Administration/LFS 216 Linux Security Fundamentals online self-paced course one then the other spaced 2 years apart sounds like a relatively low-stress way to keep it current for 6 years, while keeping the skillset sharpened. Not sure if it works the way I envision it though.
