Certified Linux Admins are in demand!
In college I paid a lot of money for many classes I did not need and ran out of money before I could finish. That was in the course of a few years.
With the LPIC content I gathered and curated the information from the lpi.org website and many other sources online (cited in my LPIC wiki).
I was able to take the LPI Essentials, LPIC 101 and LPIC 102 exams in 3 months! I am now certified for LPIC 1 all from self study using a Management System.
You don't have to get a whole package to get a hand with something...
