I always thought that certified training was con, however I have taken the Red Hat Certified Technician course and I thought it was very worth while (if you have to run Red Hat boxes), and the certificate does impress HR drones.

I the real world though the training is only as good as the effort you put in and any serious technical interview will find out what you know irrelevant of any certificates you hold!

Which is best, I don't know!

Real experience is better than any certificate, except for committees shortlisting candidates of course, they can be picky...

If I had to choose, I'd go LPI for being vendor neutral. Level 3 looks interesting, but it's annoying that you have to go through levels 1 & 2 first. I guess that's how they make their money.
