The Ubuntu Certified Professional (UCP) is a training certification based on the LPI level 1 certification. To earn the UCP, candidates are required to pass the LPI 101, LPI 102 and the Ubuntu 199 exams. Exams can be taken in any order. This course prepares students for the Ubuntu 199 exam.

This five day, hands-on course will provide participants with the skills they need to deploy and configure Ubuntu desktops and server within the office. It introduces participants to the basic skills required of Ubuntu System Administrators.
