LPI Newsletter March 2004
The March edition of the LPI Newsletter is a little late, but will show you how busy we have been;
1. Looking for Volunteers;
The Linux Professional Institute was created with the support of the Linux Community in 1999, to build a certification for Linux System Admins.
LPI continues to ask the community to participate and help out, and once again is asking for support as we create further items and tasks to develop the LPI exams. Please have a look at the attached details which will help you to help us. We thank you in advance for your assistance.
Please read through the following details;
Our thanks to the lead item writers who are heading up this project;
LPI has been translating the Level 1 exams and these will be translated into the following languages;
(At present the exams are available in English and Japanese).
We plan to publish these at all Prometric test sites in 'beta' within the next month, and the cost for these new translated exams will be $75 US. The beta period should be completed within 3 months, and then the exams will be republished at the regular rate for all LPI exams. (Please see the LPI website for regular rates.)
Please note the beta exams will be valid and _will_ count towards your Level 1 certification, and if - for example- you take exam 101 in English and 102 in French, these will count towards a Level 1 certification.
We would like to thank the following community members who assisted us with translations;
Enrique Verdes from Uruguay
Bruno Gomes from Brazil
Chouanyi Dou from China

One of our supporters, Mr Michel Bisson, has created a learning tool that he would like to offer to candidates training to the LPI certification.
He asks that you check his documents which are in Open Office format and are available for you to use;
