[LPI] Linux Professional Institute Certification Update

For those of you who are pursuing a LPI certification this newsletter might be interesting:
1. Changes to LPIC-1 and LPIC-2 Objectives

LPI alumni and registered LPI candidates will know that LPI regularly
revises and updates its certification objectives to ensure technical
currency and industry relevance. Minor revisions are undertaken every
2.5 years with major updates happening at the 5 year milestone.

Revisions to our exam objectives for the 2.5 year mark have been
completed and are available at LPI Wiki.

New exams reflecting these changes were originally scheduled for
publishing on April 1, 2012 (LPIC-1) and July 1, 2012 (LPIC-2).
However, in order to allow greater time for our candidates, training
partners, and courseware publishers to prepare for these changes we will
publish these new exams at the following dates--July 2, 2012 (LPIC-1)
and August 1, 2012 (LPIC-2).

A comparison description of objective changes made between "old" and
"revised" exam objectives will be available as "addenda" on
LPI Wiki
