Hi folks,

Karl Goetz sent me this message.
Wondered if it might be an option for next LinuxAU Conference.



I thought this would be of interest :)

Today the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) and Canonical Ltd. jointly
announced the development of a certification exam for the Ubuntu
distribution. This certification exam will enable qualified candidates
to demonstrate specific expertise in the professional use of Ubuntu
<http://www.ubuntu.com>. The certification exam will be launched in
Johannesburg, South Africa, May 16 - 19, 2006.

The Ubuntu certification will consist of a single exam on top of LPI's
existing 101 and 102 exams. This will give candidates the advantage of
an existing global standard, LPIC-1, plus the “Ubuntu Certified
Professional” status. The exam is being developed by LPI's product
development team and Ubuntu community members from around the globe. The
exam is expected to be completed in early May with the first paper exams
being available in mid-May to qualified LPIC-1 candidates who are
attending LinuxWorld Johannesburg. The computer-based testing version
will be made available later in June through Thomson Prometric and
Pearson VUE testing centres around the world. Initial exam price has
been set at $100 US.
