 Hi all,

The is a Linux training coming in September from 3rd-15th by Fossfa,
Tanzania and I encourage all staff who are interested in open source
software especially Linux to consider attending this training. If you not
able to spare the time you can start Do-It-Yourself while waiting for guys
to come near your city by using ict at innovation available at
also this site is good  http://www.linuxcertification.co.za/lpi-study-manual

Certification exam is optional and a separate cost as you have to go to a
test centre i.e Prometric or Pearson Vue to take this exam. The Fossfa
facilitators have offered a reduced cost of maybe approx. $65 to $95 to
allow attendees sit the exam in Arusha.
 1.0 About LPIC Program
The Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC) program is designed
to certify the competency of IT professionals using the Linux operating
system and its associated tools. It is designed to be distribution neutral,
following the Linux Standard Base and other relevant standards and
conventions. The LPIC program is designed in multiple levels. Determining
which tasks were suitable to each level was done using a "Job Task
Analysis" (JTA) survey. As with all of the LPIC exam development processes,
the JTA was developed and executed using recognized psychometric processes,
to ensure its relevance and high quality. LPIC Program has three
certifications; LPIC-1: Junior Level Linux Certification, LPIC-2: Advanced
Level Linux Certification and LPIC-3: Senior Level Linux Certification.
