Our Quality Standards

To ensure that as a trainer your knowledge of the topics is up-to-date, all trainers should prove their certification (LFCS/LFCE) if they want to teach one of the LFSXXX courses.

In case you have obtained your certification by following a self-paced course, you are required to enroll an instructor led course, which you can attend virtually, and the course fee will be waived.

Contact us for a course fee coupon code and to ensure we are aware that the instructor is attending on behalf of an Approved Training Partner to become an approved instructor.

For teaching the course “LFS458 Kubernetes Administration” the trainer must prove the CKA certification, LFCS or LFCE is not required. There is no certification required for the LFDXXX courses.

For some courses a Train-the-Trainer session is obligatory.
