[ Thanks to Kara Pritchard for this link. ]

The Linux Professional Institute (http://www.lpi.org/) Level 2 Exam Development team has published the first draft of the Level 2 Exam Objectives targeted toward the Level 2 Senior Systems Administrator Certification exams. The objectives can be found at: http://www.lpi.org/p-L2-obj-pre.html.

LPI would like comments, feedback, additions, and corrections from the Linux community as a continuing effort to maintain LPI's Linux community development methods.

The current objectives were derived from a development team on LPI's Exam Development mailing list after reviewing administration tasks which were subject to a Job Analysis survey conducted earlier this year. To participate in this mailing list, email listar@lpi.org with "subscribe lpi-examdev" in the SUBJECT of the message.

The current objectives draft is known to be incomplete and is currently under review to address distribution specific issues to adhere to LPI's distribution and vendor neutrality standards. The objectives are also under review to address technical accuracy issues. LPI hopes that public participation will speed this process and ensure a more complete program.

To participate, you can review the objectives and comment on the lpi-examdev list (as listed above) or email your comments directly to LPI's Director of Exam Development, Kara Pritchard.

Participation in finalizing the objectives will facilitate the Level 2 Item development which will begin with an Item Writing Session to be held next week, June 18-22. If you would like to participate by providing your Senior Sysadmin expertise and submit items, you may submit them directly to Kara, or participate in an on-line effort similar to LPI's Level 1 development program, which should be live next week.

If you have any questions, you may post them to lpi-examdev@lpi.org (if you are a listmember), or Kara Pritchard, (618)398-7360. LPI looks forward to your participation!
