The Linux Professional Institute invites all Linux professionals to participate in the creation of LPI's enterprise level LPIC-3 certification. The contest asks for IT professionals to complete a Job Task Analysis survey which will assist in the creation of a psychometrically-valid certification program.

The Job Task Analysis (JTA) survey asks participants to determine how often a specific task is performed as an IT professional (or understanding of the same) and how important it is to know the specific task or concept. The survey is open to anyone in a relevant senior level profession or has knowledge of the tasks involved in this job role (e.g. managers and project planners).

Volunteers who complete the entire LPIC 3 JTA will be randomly awarded (1) of one hundred (100) LPIC-3 exam vouchers which will be redeemable at any LPI exam lab at such events as LinuxWorld, IT360 and others. The vouchers can NOT be used at computer-based testing centres but can be transferred to other LPI candidates and are valid until Dec 31, 2008. The eligibility period for this draw ends on December 9th, 2006.

Survey participants should read the description of a Linux professional that would be able to pass the LPIC-3 certification exams--Minimally Qualified Candidate (MQC). The MQC description can be found at: https://group.lpi.org/publicwiki/bin/view/Examdev/LPIC-3#The...

The JTA survey is available at: https://www.lpi.org/caf/Xamdev/jta

Survey participants will need to provide a LPI username and password. This will enable LPI to track task list progress. In addition participants may return later to complete the survey--there are 365 tasks in the survey. Participants can return at anytime until December 9, 2006 to complete the survey.
