Novell Certified Linux Professional a “Hot Cert” for 2005
Novell's newest Linux certification has broken into the Top 10 “Hot Certs” for 2005, an annual ranking of technical certifications by CertCities.com, a leading certification publication. The Novell Certified Linux Professional (CLP) joined certifications from Cisco, Microsoft and others as most likely to see significant growth over the next year. In preparing its rankings, CertCities.com looked at both reader survey data on future certification plans and at “buzz” in the industry and among experts around certifications
“It' is very encouraging to see the Novell CLP generate such pervasive interest so quickly,”said Dan Veitkus, vice president of worldwide training services for Novell. “Novell is working aggressively to enable clients to deploy and leverage Linux in their enterprise.
