Linux Professional exams in December
Linux professionals will get one last chance to sit the LPI exams this year when certification exams are held in Johannesburg in December.
The Linux Professional Institute certifications are a standardised global Linux certification that are distribution agnostic and are intended to test working administrator skills.
Previous LPI exams held in Johannesburg attracted hundreds of participants and set a new record for concurrent LPI certifications.
David Olivier, organiser of the LPI certifications in December, says he is waiting to see how many registrations he receives although he is not necessarily pushing for a large number of participants.
The even will be supported by the Shuttleworth Foundation as LPI affiliates in South Africa.
Olivier says the venue and the date for the exams is still to be confirmed. In part this is because he is waiting to see how many people register for the exams. He says a poll will be held to determine the date closer to the time and he expects the exams to be held in the first or second week of December.
The exams will cost R300 per exam and will include Junior Level Administrator (LPIC-1) and Intermediate Level Administration(LPIC-2) certifications.
