fwiw, the job I've just started here at Lumison (née edNET) specified LPIC 
2, but my LPIC 1 plus 10+ years experience got me the job.  Also, I sat no 
training courses for my two LPIC exams, I just turned up and passed.  I 
suspect I'd perform favourably for the LPIC 2 exams simply due to my 
experience - note that I'm not saying I'd definitely pass 100%, just that I 
reckon I'd do OK :)

If any company rejects a job applicant out of hand who looks suitable bar 
the fact they haven't got a piece of paper saying they or an employer spent 
£££ on exams, IMO they need a bit of a slap.
