A Local Account is one that is unique to Linux Academy and Cloud Assessments. You will set your own username and password and authentication is handled by our login service instead of a third-party authentication system.
To sign up for a Local Account, just click on the 'Sign Up' tab of the login page and enter an email, username, and password. Please note, the email and username chosen must be unique and cannot match an existing account. If you have already created an account on Linux Academy or Cloud Assessments with the same email or username, you will not be able to create a new account.
