    I really don't know if we have a LPIC-3 on this board but I could be wrong. Here in the states, the LIPC-2 and LPIC-3 are not listed on many or really any job postings. But I have heard from a few people that the LPIC-3 is more valued in Europe. Have you thought about going after a Red Hat certification?

    He/She is over in Israel, so it may be move valuable over there. I do think there is one or two LPIC-3s on here, but I don't recall their nick.

    This is an old thread, but may help:

    Please let us know if you go on to study and pass the exam, I would be interested to hear your feedback. Good luck!

    I will definitely take the final exam, it seems silly for me to have only LPIC-2 when LPIC-3 is one exam away :) loads of things to learn, but I have already started learning for it.
    I will update my progress in my blog at http://sys-blog.net

    I feel honored that my nick was mentioned here :)

    I did LPIC-3 and LPIC-3: Security quite a while ago. LPIC-3 is basically all LDAP, so if you are an expierenced system administrator/engineer and you spend some time studying LDAP there is a chance to pass. Unfortunately the choice on study material is pretty small but an O'Reilly book on LDAP sounds like a good place to start.

    This is first time I heard about LPIC-3 Security, and after researching it I must say I am quite impressed by the exam objectives. The test looks very decent - it covers anything from openvpn, selinux, and gpg to puppet(!), nessus, and nagios.

    What did you think of the exam? (I saw your other thread on 301, but not on 303) Have you considered RHCSS?

    I've taken a look at the objectives, and that's a monster of an exam. Big congratulations on the pass! icon_thumright.gif

    Congrats. You've demonstrated that you're an expert at administering a Linux architecture. What's next? Red Hat? VMware? Hyper-V?

    after obtaining LPIC level 3 you can go for one of the specialty exams (Security, High availability, virtualization)but I decided not to go for either of them.
    I ordered RCHSA/RHCE book and that is my next goal. :)
    kind of hard doing everything with degree studyin, but I will get that too eventually.
