LPI Completes Development of Second Exam for Linux Certification Program

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI) has announced the completion of development for its second exam, named '102', which is the second of two exams required to obtain LPI Level 1 certification (LPIC-1). The exam tests candidates on basic Linux knowledge and will be delivered worldwide through a network of over 1,700 Virtual University Enterprises (VUE) testing centers. More than 140 training sites have registered at the LinTraining web-site to target LPI certification in their educational programs. LPI is a nonprofit organization focused on defining distribution-neutral and vendor-neutral certification standards for the Linux operating system, with major financial sponsors including Caldera Systems, IBM, Linuxcare, Maxspeed, SGI, SuSE Linux AG, TurboLinux, Hewlett-Packard, and Wave Technologies. The release of exam 102 is expected in mid-April, in time for the Linux Business Expo at Chicago's McCormick Center.
