First LPI Proctor

Posted by rom on November 13, 2004

I just got back from a day of Linux Professional Institute (LPI) Linux Certification Proctor training that was held in Vietnam. I am now a certified proctor! Yahoo! πŸ™‚

What does this mean? It means that I can now give LPI Linux certification exams here in the Philippines and hopefully get a lot of Linux users certified. The LPI online certification exam is quite expensive at US$100 but with this new way of delivering the exam, I am hoping that the country will have one of the largest pool of LPI-certified Linux professionals.

Let’s wait and see what happens. Stay tuned for the announcement of the first certification exam schedule.

    Congratulations! πŸ™‚

    Now you’ve made me curious…. do you have to be certified in Linux yourself to be a proctor for the Linux cert exam??

    Congrats for being a proctor. πŸ™‚

  3. Congrats from across the South China Sea! How’d you like SighGone(tm ;-))?

    Say, would you be up to helping a poor IT training provider/instructor-recruiter over here? I’d really like to find out:

    01. What you thought of the training materials used? (Were they limited to the LPI 101/102 manuals available at nongnu.savannah.org as the undp-apdip pages for the programme suggest? Or were other materials provided in-class?)

    02. Did any of your Vietnamese colleagues, especially those of SaiGon, stand out as potentially good LPI Cert’n Prep’n instructors? Remember any names?

    03. What did you think of the average Viet participant and the local programme organizers?

    I’ve actually already contacted the LPI and UNDP-APDIP reps for this programme with similar questions already, but (possibly due to my organization’s mail-server moving interruptions) I not received any response from them yet.

    One more question wrt the nongnu.savannah.org training materials: Have you joined the project or mailing list for developing those? I have, but it seems pretty dead — no response on the mailing list or to mails to the project maintainers (though, again, mailserver issues may be the cause for the lack of responses to my mails).

    Again, congrats. And best of luck with your Filipina/o Linux-learning advocacy campaign.

  5. Apologies for the double posting. I was trying to correct an apparent blogger.com correction of the URL I wrote for HoLUG (there should be a zero, not an “o” in “h0lug” in the URL). But the correction didn’t work and my post got duplicated. – best, ADM
