    LINDON, Utah, April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Caldera Education
 Services, a practice of Caldera International, Inc. (Nasdaq:   CALD) Global
 Services, has expanded its certification program by adding industry-standard
 Linux certification tracks, including Linux Professional Institute (LPI)
 Level 1 and CompTIA Linux+(TM) certifications.  Caldera's certifications offer
 IT professionals the latest industry-standard education opportunities for both
 Linux and UNIX.  The expanded certification program also refreshes OpenServer
 and UnixWare/Open UNIX 8 certification tracks.

     The certification program incorporates three levels:
     --  Certified System Administrator (CSA), formerly known as CUSA;
     --  Advanced Certified Engineer (ACE); and
     --  Master ACE.
 
     Each level now includes a Linux track and UNIX tracks and has one exam or
 more.
     "IT professionals who complete their CSA, ACE and Master ACE
 certifications will increase tremendously the value they provide to their
 organizations.  Additionally, they will find more diverse job opportunities
 and gain competitive advantages through these highly-developed competencies,"
 said David Acheson, director of Education Services, Caldera.  "Our tracks are
 industry-standardized, which is critical to today's IT professionals and
 employers when it comes to Linux and UNIX expertise."
     Because of the synergy between Linux and UNIX, shell programming has been
 added to the ACE certification track.  Caldera's Linux track adopts industry-
 standard certifications and incorporates the latest courseware, including the
 recently announced Caldera OpenLearning Courseware for Linux.  All Caldera
 OpenLearning Providers around the globe are equipped to help certification
 candidates complete their certification, and many of the Providers are
 Prometric and VUE testing centers.  This allows the candidates the convenience
 of taking the exams at the OpenLearning Provider's site.
     "Caldera demonstrates time and time again its commitment to industry
 standards," said Chuck Mead, president, LPI.  "The inclusion of LPI industry-
 standard certifications into their certification tracks exponentially benefits
 the education of the students and IT professionals involved."
     While CSA and ACE candidates can certify to be either Linux or UNIX
 competent, Master ACE graduates will prove both Linux and UNIX competencies,
 in accordance with industry-standard education.
     "Considering how complementary Linux and UNIX technologies are, Caldera is
 ingenious for offering a certification track that qualifies candidates to
 operate in both," said Brian Lewis, Linux and UNIX instructor and owner of
 Shogomoc Systems in Minneapolis, Minn.  "Intense, yet worth the effort from
 both instructor and student, Caldera offers premium Linux and UNIX education
 training for Master ACE candidates."
