Of course, there's nothing wrong with actually making this a
requirement. There are certainly many certification that have the
demonstration of "years of practice"  as a requirement for a high-level
credential, mandating that exams alone are not enough.

With no such demand for experience to achieve Level 3, it is inevitable
in the hyper-competitive world of IT training that someone will write an
LPIC3 tutorial, offer an LPIC3 bootcamp, and/or produce LPIC3 braindumps
-- if sufficient interest in LPIC3 exists. Speaking about whether these
_should_ be done is pointless, the only question is whether the size of
the market of Level 3 candidates will make these tools sufficiently
profitable to produce.

Of course, it would be more expensive to deliver a program with an
experience requirement since LPI would need the resources to perform due
diligence on candidate claims. However, perhaps the reputation benefit
(of a cert that could  not be achieved only by intense
study/memorization) would be worth the additional cost of such an elite
