LPI Preparation Review

This may be the first time any of you see of this topic. If it is successful, we’ll be offering it again in the future.

First some background. With a little urging from Tim Inkpen (who has gotten involved with the OTI), Andrea Vieira and I will be presenting a rapid get up to speed course for people who wish to get their LPIC-Level 1 certification. The initial offering starts June 18th and yesterday (I was over there to attend a session on how to bid on government contracts) there was 1 seat available in a class of 25. If anyone is interested, you should try to sign up right away.

This is a first cut, so I expect there will be a few rough edges as it is a massive amount of data to cover and if you don’t have prior Linux experience (Unix will help a lot), you probably will not pass.

This will only cover the first of two exams, the “101” exam. Depending on the turnout, we will push to get a 102 course ready as well.

We are expecting 10-15 Monday evenings to cover the material that we are presenting and there will be an expectation of the attendees to spend 5-15 hours per week practicing (work experience will count :) ). We are also hoping to use the education portal at The Kuzink Business Incubator to provide additional information, practice sessions and a Q&A forum as well as coordinating some skype based chats.

Interestingly enough, the purpose of the SAGE organization is to promote System Administration as a profession and I’ve been running the local for almost 10 years now. This is the first course I have put on for this, so I’m hoping this is the start of many more.

More information can be found on the course page.
