Got an email this morning with some upcoming changes to the LPIC exams.

Upcoming Changes to LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 Following extensive consultations with industry representatives and Linux professionals, LPI will make substantial changes to both LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 in the coming year. These include the following:
- Move Capacity Planning and OpenLDAP server essentials out of LPIC-3 into LPIC-2
- Merge remaining 301/302 topics into a "new" 300 exam
- the addition of new technologies into a "new" 300 exam
- ability to obtain a LPIC-3 designation through successful completion of any one of the 300 level exams (i.e. the new "LPI-300" exam or the existing LPI-303 or LPI-304 exams)

Please note the following:
- Publication of new LPIC-2 exams (based on new objectives) will be available in the Spring of 2013
- Publication of the new LPI-300 exam (based on new objectives) will be available in the Summer of 2013
- Existing LPI-301 and LPI-302 exams will only be available until the end of 2013
- Existing holders of LPIC-3 certification (or the LPI-302 "specialty") will continue to have their certifications remain "active" as per LPI's recertification policy (#6 at Policies | Linux Professional Institute (LPI))

Those preparing for their LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 certification exams are advised to do so as soon as possible before these expected changes take place later in 2013. For detailed information on the upcoming changes to LPIC-2 and LPIC-3 please see: LPIC2AndLPIC3ChangeProposalVersion3To4 - LPI Wiki
