LPI level 2

The contents of this training will be defined by the knowledge gaps of the participants. Our LPI prep course is directed at Linux-experienced persons aiming to close their professional knowledge gaps without wasting time on having to listen to known subjects again. At the course's beginnig, you will fill in a test questionnaire. We will evaluate all participant's questionnaires and create a course program addressing the specific combination of subjects that proved to be challenging to the participants.

Therefore, our LPI prep courses are a combination of cost-effective group training and personal instruction. The training course is not completely arranged for you only, but you also do pay only a fraction of the cost of a personal tutor. The concept of this LPI training, based on knowledge gaps, adapts itself automatically to difficult topics. In view of an already Linux-skilled target group, we believe this approach to be far more effective than a rigidly fixed agenda:

  1. Knowledge gaps automatically constitute the course's agenda but according to experience, most participants have common gaps. Although these requirements are subject to constant change, our tutors are competent enough to adapt to them.
  2. Known subjects automatically will not be trained, leaving more time for difficult topics.


You should be acquainted with the topics covered in our Linux networking training and LPI level 1.

In order to achieve the LPIC 2 certification, you will have to pass two exams: 201 and 202. If you are interested in completing the exams LPIC-2 201 and/or LPIC-2 202 directly after the trainig course at the Linuxhotel, we kindly ask you for your registration not later than three weeks previous to the training course, as the Linux Professional Institute will require this preliminary lead time! One exam will cost 145 Euro plus VAT.

Please notify us upon registration whether you would like to take the exam in german or english language. A personal LPI-ID, which you can obtain here will be a prerequisite.

With us, the exam will be administered on paper forms and not with a PC like in VUE und Prometric test centers. Therefore, the evaluation will take several days (and, in some cases even weeks).

At some events, the LPI is offering exams at reduced prices. You will find an overview of the upcoming schedules here.


Wer möchte, reist bis 22 Uhr am Vortag an und nutzt den Abend bereits zum Fachsimpeln am Kamin oder im Park.

An den Kurstagen dann von 9-18 Uhr (mit 2 Kaffee- und 1 Mittagspause) etwa 60% Schulungen und 40% Übungen. Selbstverständlich arbeitet jeder Teilnehmer am von uns gestellten Notebook oft parallel zum Referenten mit.

Anschließend Abendessen und Angebote für Fachsimpeln, Ausflüge uvm. Wir schaffen eine Atmosphäre, in der Fachleute sich ungezwungen austauschen. Wer das nicht will, wird zu nichts gezwungen und findet auch jederzeit Ruhe.
