Linux+ Experts Needed

CompTIA is currently seeking Linux system administrators or similar IT professionals to participate in an Item Writing Workshop for our Linux+ Certification exam.

During the Item Writing workshop, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will create, develop, and review item content (questions) for the CompTIA Linux+ Certification exam.

Assistance from SMEs is crucial in providing an industry relevant exam. To qualify, potential Linux+ SMEs must have:

  • At least 5 years cumulative IT experience with at least 2 years of hands-on Linux systems administration.
  • It is preferred that SMEs are Linux+, LPIC, or Red Hat certified, or have equivalent or higher credentials.

SMEs who attend the workshop will receive:

  • An honorarium of $200 per day (or $1,000 total for the week), pending adequate level of participation
  • A complimentary CompTIA testing voucher for the exam of their choice
  • 40 continuing education units (CEUs) upon successful completion of the workshop

In recognition of their contributions, all SMEs who participate in the entire Item Writing workshop will have their names and companies (if provided) listed on the CompTIA website.

When: October 16-20, 2023
Where: Virtual Workshop

Only Linux system administrators or similar IT professionals should apply. Although CompTIA appreciates interest from the training community, applications from trainers, authors, or individuals who may profit or materially benefit from knowledge of the CompTIA credential content are not eligible to participate.
