LFCS certification results

Welcome to post 29 of my 100 day challenge. Checkout my introduction for some background.

LFCS certification results

I took the LFCS exam on Thursday 31st April at 10AM. It was a difficult exam even though this was a resit. I found that through focusing on my weak spots I had neglected some of the other items I was proficient in so I found the entire thing challenging. But I was pleased that I didn’t get stuck on certain topics that I had struggled with the previous time I sat the exam.


On Sunday 3rd of May I received an email from the Linux Foundation congratulating me on having passed the LFCS exam and could now market myself as a Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator.

I logged into the portal and was confronted with the following details:

If you want to verify my certification you can use the Linux Foundation certification verification tool here, with the following details:

Last Name: Edwards

I am now able to use the following badge where I wish to illustrate the fact that I am now a Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator.

I am well chuffed for myself as I’ve come a long way in the past 12 months. I had to completely retrain to take on my current job role and now I believe that the effort has paid off and is reflected in the passing of this exam.

I think I’m going to take a short while to reflect on this and finish off a few major projects before pushing forward to gain Linux Foundation Certified Engineer certification.
