The first such “specialty” designation “Mixed Environment” was made available in January 2007 and “Security” was released in February 2009. The 117-301 exam is the sole exam for LPIC-3 designation. LPI_301 (Mixed Environments) and LPI 303 (Security) are “specialty” exams. You can visit the LPI website to know more about this exam:
