LPI Announces New Training Partners in China and Philippines

(Sacramento, CA, USA: May 17, 2011) The Linux Professional Institute 
(LPI), the world's premier Linux certification organization 
(http://www.lpi.org), and its affiliate, LPI-Asia Pacific 
(http://www.lpi-apac.org/) announced new LPI-Approved Training Partners 
(LPI-ATP) in the region: Beijing Shenghao Boyuan Technology Company of 
mainland China (http://www.linux-bjsh.com/) and Concentrix of the 
Philippines (http://www.concentrix.com).

"We are noting an increasing adoption of our certification program 
throughout the Asia Pacific region, particularly in China and the ASEAN 
group of countries as demonstrated by these two new partners. As a 
result, we are receiving more inquiries for approved training partners 
who have an in-depth understanding of our exam objectives. Shenghao and 
Concentrix are well-positioned to fill this role within their respective 
territories," said Jim Lacey, president and CEO of LPI. Mr. Lacey noted 
he will also be travelling to the region in early July as a featured 
speaker at the Malaysia Open Source Conference (http://www.mosc.my/)

"In the past few years, we have seen an enormous demand for Linux talent 
within the fast growing IT industry of China. However, recruiting costs 
are still significant for employers and the competition for available 
jobs is challenging. Fortunately, as additional enterprises, 
organizations, and government agencies recognize the competency and 
knowledge represented by LPI certification, an increasing number of 
people are keen to take LPIC exams in order to become more competitive. 
Shenghao has been working on training Linux professionals for years. We 
are now putting all of our best resources into providing professional 
training and exam preparation programs, developing high-quality course 
materials and offering flexible exam channels. Shenghao truly believes 
that all stakeholders will benefit from the close cooperation of LPI and 
Shenghao," said Anne Li, General Manager, Beijing Shenghao Boyuan 
Technology Co.,Ltd., China.
