    The Ubuntu certification will consist of a single exam on top of LPI's existing 101 and 102 exams. This gives u the advantage of an existing global standard, LPIC-1, plus the “Ubuntu Certified Professional” status. The exam is developed by LPI's product development team and Ubuntu community members. This is internationally-recognized certification programs which have earned the respect of vendors, employers and administrators. Look here for More Info and here is Official Documentation

    Sorry, I missed something. It is not necessary to do certification particularly on ubuntu, there r several Linux certifications in the market. U know better that, core Linux component is same (kernel) for all variants of Linux OS. CompTia Linux + certification or RHCE or NCLE or other global certification on the same. Though u mentioned the OS type is Ubuntu, that is why I recommended to do the specific certifications, remember it is only RECOMMENDATION not ESSENTIAL. And also I provided the necessary references in my earlier discussions. There is also a good resource for Linux and HowTos, u can visit tldp.org
