LPI approves new training partner in SA
The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) has approved South African company Jumping Bean as an official LPI Training Partner. The LPI qualifications are an internationally recognised Linux industry certification.
“Becoming an approved LPI training institute is an important achievement for us” says Joseph Neusu. The vendor-neutral LPI certificate has three levels of certification from junior to senior Linux professional.
As part of the drive by LPI South Africa to make education more affordable, they have successfully negotiated with the body’s head office for a lower examination fee that fits the pockets of school leavers and their parents. In addition, in order to allow for easier access to the qualification, paper based exams have been introduced overcoming the requirement for students to pay for the more expensive computer based exams.
In order to meet its commitment of ensuring that its training and certification retains its premier status with business and government the LPI regularly reviews and updates its course content to ensure that students receive training that is relevant to the markets needs.
Certified individuals are required to renew their certification on a regular basis to ensure their skills remain up to date and that employers can rely on the qualification as an indication of the holders skill and professionalism. Its rigorous training partner approval process is also aimed at ensuring that students receive only the best possible education from approved trainers and facilities.
