1;  The retake policy for LPI exams has been set.

If you fail an LPI exam, you must wait one week before you retake it.
If you fail a second time, you must wait 90 days before taking it again.
If you fail a third and successive time, you must again wait 90 days.

If you pass the LPI exam, you can not retake it until the exam is 
re-written, and the revision is published.

2;  We have not offered recognition for volunteer of the month for
some time - but we really wanted to offer some recognition to;
Mr Jason Record who has been assisting the Exam Develpment Team as it 
finalized the re-write of Level 1.  
Thank-you Jason for your time and effort.
Without our volunteers - LPI would not be the valuable community effort
it has become.

We noticed an interesting article on LPI training in the UK.
It covers the training in one particularly lovely place in England,
where you can prepare for the LPI certification. 

If you find any other interesting LPI articles, please let us know.
