Community: Linux Professional Institute Invites Community Input

Aug 27, 2005, 09:00 (5 Talkback[s])

(Toronto, Ontario - August 27, 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:
https://group.lpi.org/cgi-bin/publicwiki/view/Examdev/ObjectivesReview

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 date.
