At the camp we will offer a Linux certification organized by the Linux Professional Institute (http://lpi.org).
The exam will take place on Day 2 of the camp, that is the 27th of July at 1pm.
The good news is that we will fund the 12 first people to sign up for the certification with 40 EUR - that's 50% off the regular LPI conference price and nearly 25% off the regular assessement center price. The fund is valid per sign-up only and not per certification exam.
Not only will we fund part of the exams, but LPI will also support every exam-taker with another 10 EUR off the regular conference price.
The LPI programme is designed in three levels LPIC-1, LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 with the first both levels divided into two separate exams and the latter one in four exams.
The objectives of these three levels can be read on the following websites:
The brief descriptions might look easy at first - especially so for LPIC-1 - but as you're preparing you'll find that some exam questions are more intricate than you'd expect from their descriptions. So don't be mislead by first appearances.
For our young fellow hackers LPI introduces on June 11th the Linux Essentials Certificate Program to prepare them for the must-have skills of the future: knowledge of multiple computing environments, knowledge sharing, open source basics, and a dedication to the profession.
Whether we'll be able to offer an exam session for the young ones, must be clarified.
After becoming certified by LPI you are eligible to apply for and receive the following certifications at no additional cost or effort:
- Novell Certified Linux Administrator (Novell CLA)
- Data Center Technical Specialist
To participate at the exam, you need to register at the lpice event website and either buy a full camp-ticket or at least a daypass for the 27th (available at the camp). The reduction on the full price however, will only be available to people with full-4-day registrations.
