GoDaddy.com adopts Linux Professional Institute Certification

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI), the world’s premier Linux certification organization (http://www.lpi.org), announced that GoDaddy.com (http://www.godaddy.com) , the world’s largest domain name registrar, has initiated a program of LPI training and certification for their technical support staff. The program began this past March and an initial group of IT professionals at GoDaddy.com have successfully obtained their LPIC-1 certification.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to work with Go Daddy and share their values on the importance of workforce development of IT professionals in Linux and Open Source solutions. LPI will continue to work with industry leaders such as Go Daddy to ensure a program that measures the Linux skills needed for the enterprise environment,” said Jim Lacey, president and CEO of LPI.

GoDaddy.com approached the Linux Professional Institute earlier this year and noted that LPI’s exam objectives complemented Go Daddy’s skill requirements for their in-house staff responsible for Debian and CentOS webservers. In addition, the company sought a global standard in Linux knowledge to use as an ongoing recruitment tool for anticipated needs in new IT staff. Go Daddy has doubled in size in the last four years and is always looking to add employees skilled in Linux technologies to support their growing operations.
