TORONTO, May 10, 2005 - The Linux Professional Institute (LPI), (http://www.lpi.org/), the premier professional certification program for the Linux community worldwide, announced today ongoing improvements and changes to its Certification program. These improvements include regular rotation of exam questions, objectives review, and merging of the 101 exam forms that contain RPM and DPKG package management questions.

Exam Question rotation:

Since September 2004 LPI has undertaken an extensive review of its exam questions which has led to a rotation of exam questions for both levels of exams (LPIC-1 and LPIC-2). Given the increasing global popularity of LPI's certification program, input from candidates and training partners on exam questions has increased. Regular and more frequent exam question rotation and development of new questions will lead to greater exam quality and protection from “braindumps'' or cheating.

(這段是說, 考題更新的速度會很頻繁, 避免 "背考題" 和作弊)
(難怪現在都沒有 "準" 的考古題啦...8))



Objective Review:

Input on exam questions and research on exam quality has enabled the Certification team at LPI to initiate an objective review and update process. Internal efforts will continue until June 30, 2005 (2005-06-30) at which time LPI will solicit wider community input on updating LPIC-1 objectives until the end of the year. A similar effort involving community and stakeholder input will be undertaken for the review of LPIC-2 objectives from September 2005 (2005-09-01) until the end of February 2006 (2006-02-28).

The objective review process will include improvements to facilitate greater participation by the community and stakeholders. The review will include both the objective description (non-technical language to describe identified tasks) and the key knowledge areas where the technology and software used will be described in more detail. However, the basic content of each objective will not change.

These updated objectives will be effective for LPIC-1 in April 2006 (2006-04) and for LPIC-2 in May 2006 (2006-05). In the interim and after the review is completed the Certification team will publish a publicly available file comparing the differences between the old and new objectives. All community members are invited to send their objective-related comments to objectives_at_lpi.org.

(這段主要是說明, 在 2006-04 會啟用更新版的 Level-1 Exam Objective; 2006-05 會啟用更新版的 Level-2 Exam Objective)


Merging RPM and DPKG Package Management Exam Questions:

Following extensive internal review and community input through discussion lists and a RFC (https://group.lpi.org/cgi-bin/publicwiki/view/Operations/RFC8) LPI has decided to merge the separate exam forms 101 and 151. These separate exam forms on Exam 101 for LPIC-1 gave exam candidates a choice between RPM and DPKG package management. However, there has been increasing community consensus that a certified Linux sysadmin should know both types of package management. In addition, a single form enables certain internal efficiencies both in terms of piloting new items and publishing costs. As a result as of September 1, 2005 (2005-09-01) exam candidates will be required to know both forms of package management in order to successfully complete their LPIC-1.

(這段的重點是, 從 2005-09-01 開始, Level-1 的 101 考試不再分為 RPM 和 DPKG 兩科讓考生二選一, 將合併為一科, 考生必需同時具備管理 RPM + DPKG 的能力才能通過考試 )
