CHICAGO - Aug. 20, 2014 - PRLog -- The Linux Foundation and Innovative Exams have partnered to deliver testing for their newly launched suite of online, distribution-flexible, and performance-based Linux certifications. The 2014 Linux Jobs Report found that "The explosive demand for Linux talent is intensifying." The Linux Foundation’s certification exams will help increase the candidate talent pool. Candidates around the globe will conveniently be able to test on demand and on their personal computer. The testing platform leverages the latest in open source next-generation communication technologies that run natively within an Internet browser and does not require the installation of intrusive software. Exams will be launched via a secure virtual portal with a multitude of built-in security measures directly within the testing candidate’s browser. The system can run on all desktop operating systems, including Linux, Windows, Mac OS and Chrome OS. “Innovative Exams’ fully virtual online testing platform is revolutionary, and allows us to reach an unprecedented global audience conveniently on the candidates' terms.” (Mike Woster, Chief Operating Officer, The Linux Foundation)
