Since we launched our first certification exam in August of 2014, all Linux Foundation performance-based certification exams have been priced at $300. To address the rise in costs associated with administering these exams, we will be implementing a modest price increase effective July 1, 2021.
All performance-based exams will increase in price from $300 to $375. Bundles of performance-based certifications and their associated training courses will increase from $499 to $575. Bootcamp pricing will also increase in price from $999 to $1,200, and the Linux Foundation Certified IT Associate (LFCA) knowledge-based exam will increase from $200 to $250. We continue to provide the industry’s only free-retake guarantee (an automatic second attempt if your first is unsuccessful on most exams), and are in the process adding other features for exam takers such as an enhanced interface and exam simulation labs.
We strive to make quality open source certifications as accessible as possible so we want to provide plenty of notice, and the old pricing will remain in place through June 30th.
Don’t forget that our Linux exams and training courses including LFCA, LFCE and LFCS are discounted 30% through the end of 2021 in recognition of the 30th anniversary of Linux. Use code LINUX30 at checkout to take advantage of these savings.
