Novell Certified Linux Engineer 9
The Novell Certified Linux Engineer 9 certification will help you master advanced SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server administration skills. With this certification, you will be in high demand as more and more employers seek talented Linux engineers.

This certification will require you to have completed your Novell CLP certification before you take the Novell Practicum for your Novell CLE 9 certification. (So if you?re already a Novell CLP, you?re more than halfway done with the Novell CLE 9 track!)

Although you are not required to take any certification courses to become a Novell Certified Linux Engineer 9, you must meet the following requirements:

Prerequisite Knowledge
You must have a solid understanding of networking. We recommend that you review an introductory networking course?such as Foundations of Novell Networking: NetWare 6.5 (Course 3016)?or obtain equivalent experience.

Required Exams "The Novell Practicum for the Novell CLE 9 certification will be available in September 2005."

You must complete the entire Novell Certified Linux Professional 9 certification path?including Novell Practicum 050-689?before you can take the Novell Certified Linux Engineer 9 practicum exam (050-693). (Note: The Novell Practicum for the Novell CLE 9 certification will be available in September 2005.)

Elective Courses
Coursework is never required for this certification. However, using the following Novell training materials for study (available in instructor-led and self-study formats) is an excellent way to prepare for the two Novell Practicum exams required to complete certification.

SUSE LINUX Fundamentals (Course 3036) or
Getting Started with Linux: Novell?s Guide to CompTIA's Linux+ (Course 3060)
Either of these courses provides the introductory Linux information assessed by the Novell Practicum. SUSE LINUX Fundamentals (Course 3036) introduces open source standards as well as the common knowledge and skills you will need to manage any Linux distribution. You will learn how to log in to a multi-user Linux environment, navigate the SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server file system and manipulate files, work within shells and execute shell script commands, control processes running on SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server and more. The other course, Getting Started with Linux: Novell?s Guide to CompTIA's Linux+ (Course 3060), also provides this information, but it includes additional detail on hardware support and other high-level introductory topics. This course specifically meets the objectives outlined by CompTIA for its own Linux+ exam and certification, a respected, international industry credential.
