LPIC-3 Mixed Environments

The LPIC-3 certification is the culmination of the multi-level professional certification program of the Linux Professional Institute (LPI). LPIC-3 is designed for the enterprise-level Linux professional and represents the highest level of professional, distribution-neutral Linux certification within the industry. Four separate LPIC-3 specialty certifications are available. Passing any one of the four exams will grant the LPIC-3 certification for that specialty.

The LPIC-3 Mixed Environments certification covers the administration of Linux systems enterprise-wide in mixed environments.

The course focuses on system architecture, basic administration for Linux and Windows systems, managing multi-level networks, data sharing, scripting, disaster recovery, troubleshooting and security. The course will help learners gain in-depth knowledge of physical and virtual networking components, common enterprise networking concepts, and best practices.
It is suitable for IT professionals who have experience with designing, building, configuring and implementing complex network architectures, operating system management and automation techniques, and overall troubleshooting techniques. With the LPIC-3 300 course, professionals can build and maintain a secure, resilient, and highly integrated enterprise infrastructure, while reducing downtime and costs.
