Linux Essentials "beta" exams: Call for Volunteers

(Kassel, Germany: April 19, 2012) The Linux Professional Institute -
Central Europe (LPI-CE: http://www.lpice.eu), issued a call for
volunteers to participate in the first "beta" exams for the Linux
Professionals Institute's (LPI: http://www.lpi.org) "Linux Essentials"
program during LinuxTag, May 23-26 in Berlin, Germany

?Linux Essentials? is an innovative new program measuring foundational
knowledge in Linux and Open Source Software and will be publicly
released in June 2012.  "Beta" exams are offered free to volunteers who
wish to assist LPI in its exam development process for the "Linux
Essentials" program.

During LinuxTag there will be eight different sessions for volunteers to
take "beta" exams which are offered free of charge.  This volunteer
effort will enable LPI to measure the "Linux Essentials" exam for
quality, accuracy and relevancy.  All interested individuals who do not
hold an existing Linux certification are invited to participate--however
seating is limited to ten per session.

Successful candidates who pass the exam will be awarded a "Linux
Essentials Certificate of Achievement".  Alternatively candidates may
choose to have their exam results deleted from their registration
record. Final exam scores for the volunteer "beta" exams will be
available in late June 2012. Volunteer participants in the "beta" exams
during LinuxTag will also be eligible for special prizes (TBA).

Each "beta" session is for two hours and consists of eighty questions.
To participate exam volunteers must obtain an LPI ID at
https://cs.lpi.org/caf/Xamman/register and register in advance for the
Linux Essentials "beta" exam at http://lpievent.lpice.eu "

"Beta" exams will be available at the LPI exam room "Regensburg" at
hall 4.1 during LinuxTag at the following times: Thursday, May
24th, Friday, May 25th at 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and on
Saturday, May 26th at 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m.

Exam preparation sessions for the Linux Essentials "beta"
exam will be offered on the first day of LinuxTag, Wednesday, May 23,
2012 at the Berlin Fair Grounds (LPI exam room "Regensburg", Hall 4.1).
Participation is voluntary but seating is limited.  Please register in
advance by sending an email with the title "Exam preparation session for
the Linux Essentials Beta" to info at lpice.eu and include your name and

LPI invites all interested trainers to submit a proposal for this Linux
Essentials exam preparation session.  Proposals should include a
detailed description for a three hour exam preparation session and may
be submitted to info at lpice.eu until May 3, 2012.

Targeted at new technology users, the ?Linux Essentials? program is set
to be adopted by schools, educational authorities, training centers and
others commencing June 2012.  For more information on this program
