"The Linux Professional Institute(LPI) has been very busy. With the help of volunteers from around the world, an advisory council which includes individuals from the top Linux related companies, and sponsors which help promote their agenda, LPI is poised for global recognition. Since it's inception two years ago, the mission has been simple and straightforward; to deliver "a standardized, multi-national, and respected program to certify levels of individual expertise in Linux."
"In less than two short years, the dream has become a reality for the founders of LPI. With a Linux Professional Institute Certification(LPIC) now positioned to become the de-facto certification worldwide, the hard work and sponsorships are having their desired effect. Much work must yet be done; volunteers and sponsors are always needed; as the non-profit organization plans to make their certification available to anyone around the world."
"Already, their web site http://www.lpi.org/ has been translated into Japanese and German, with French and Chinese to closely follow. Other languages are in the process of being added, with many volunteers assisting in the endeavor. Anyone wanting to volunteer to help the translation team is asked to contact Duane Dunstan by e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. An LPI-Japan has been established with directors from Turbolinux Japan, IBM Japan, Linuxcare, and assistance from Fujitsu, Hitachi, NEC, Keio University and others."
