BRAMPTON, ONTARIO, CANADA: The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) today announced the completion of its Level 2 certification exams. The exams, which cover the intermediate level of the LPI certification program, will be made available September 4 in beta form at a special price.

"We're delighted to release Level 2, on schedule and on budget, while maintaining the high quality exam standards LPI is known for," said LPI President Chuck Mead. "We have been making incredible progress in advancing our program, and the community support has been phenomenal."

Level 2 of the LPI program covers intermediate system administration skills and is the followup to LPI's introductory Level 1 program. The program objectives, published at the LPI website, were developed thanks to a community-supported Job Analysis Survey conducted by LPI in January 2001. It is aimed at Linux system administrators with roughly three to four years' experience who have already passed LPI's Level 1 program.

"I'm extremely proud of the quality of the program, and the hard work that our staff and volunteers have put into Level 2," said LPI Director of Exam Development Kara Pritchard. "The exams are challenging but fair, and will be a valid measure of the intermediate-level skills determined by our survey."
