Linux + expiration?

Repo ManRepo Man Posts: 300Member
Can anyone confirm if Linux + will be effected by Comptia's new renewal process?

AFAIK right now Linux + is certified for life and LPIC-1 for 5 years. Just want to know if this will be changing in 2011.

    Linux+ in its current format ends Oct 31/2010.
    It will then be "Linux+ Powed by LPI" and conform to LPI renewal policies from what I've been told.

    I'm regretting taking CCNA 3 as I do not have time to prep for Linux+ before month end.icon_sad.gif

    +1

    There might be more later, but that is it for now.

    What study materials are out for the new one (or recommended) as the texts we normally stock might be obsolete and the program may have to look for a new one..
