Important Exam Information

LPI has broken the 101 exam into two separate exams, 117-101-RPM and 117-101-DPKG. This means you can either focus on the RPM package method or the DEB package method. You must specify the exam desired at scheduling, and to both VUE and Prometric’s credit, the customer reps are trained to query you about the desired exam.
