The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) invites members of the wider Linux community to assist in the updating of their exams.
(Toronto, Ontario - August 26, 2005) The Linux Professional Institute
(LPI) (http://www.lpi.org) invites
members of the wider Linux community to assist in the updating of
their exams. LPI Certification exams depend on community contributions
to keep their professional exams at the cutting edge. LPI is currently
in the process of reviewing the technical objectives on which the
exams are based. LPI would like to invite the Linux community to
contribute to these reviews.
The Objective Review is an essential part of LPI's exam development
process. Objectives connect prospective Linux systems administration
tasks to question items on the exams. Each objective is dependent on a
particular task and determines the topic of a specified number of test
items. By keeping the tasks and objectives current, the examinations
keep up with the ever changing Linux landscape.
LPI is at the point in this exam development process where community
input would be greatly appreciated on their evolving objectives
list. LPI invites any community members to visit the LPI Wiki site,
peruse the objectives, and submit comments. This is an simple task
that does not take a lot of time. However, community involvement is
essential for on-going quality control and is an important factor in
the decision processes of the LPI exam development team.
The LPI Wiki is at:
Anybody is welcome to visit and enter comments.
The LPI Exam Development Staff look forward to your input and express
their gratitude for those who have participated in the process to
