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:
|Achieved/Renewed On:||May 3rd, 2015|
|Expires on:||May 3rd, 2017 (Renewal)|
|Score Needed to Pass:||74%|
If you want to verify my certification you can use the Linux Foundation certification verification tool here, with the following details:
Certification ID: LFCS-1500-0269-0100
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.
Can you improve on any of the tips I’ve discussed here? If you can let me know in the comments.
