LPIC-2 Qualification Valid for HP Blades and Proliants

Feb 08, 2008

Hewlett-Packard is now accepting Linux Professional Institute (LPI) level 2 qualifications as entry-level credits for training to HP's Accredited System Engineer standard.

The Linux Professional Institute has announced that Hewlett-Packard will accept the LPIC-2 as evidence of sufficient operating system skills for HP Accredited System Engineer (ASE) level qualifications. The LPI certificate will be accepted for Proliant server and HP blade systems.

Hewlett Packard awards system engineer status if applicants have certain qualifications and additionally pass various HP exams. To qualify as a system engineer for Proliant and Blade servers the hardware vendor has previously required Novell or Red Hat certification. LPIC-2 has now been added.

Due to this LPIC-2 accreditation has been added to the HP's catalog of qualifications for Accredited Integration Specialists (AIS); AIS accreditation is a requirement for ASE level. LPIC-1 was accepted previously as AIS accreditation for the storage series.

Hewlett Packard also offers Linux training in preparation for LPI exams.
