LPI assists other Open Source organization in the development and delivery of certification programs. This includes the Ubuntu Certified Professional exams which LPI offers through Prometric and VUE testing centres..
The Ubuntu Certified Professional (UCP) is a 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.

* Install and configure Ubuntu systems
* Perform routine administration tasks: boot and shut down the system, manage user accounts and file systems, and maintain system security

Previous knowledge of Linux is an advantage; prior system administration experience of some other operating system is required.
