Segment Two- Getting Linux Certified- An Update with Linux Professional Institute

Tonight we will be joined by Evan Leibovitch President and Chairman of the Board of LPI. For those of you living in a closet, LPI or the Linux Professional Institute is a community organization advocating the professional use of Linux. It is best known around the world as the organization that developed the metrix and testing protocols for a professional Linux skills certification certification exam. LPI's industry standard certifications are delivered in thousands of locations worldwide, in multiple languages and with the support of employers, vendors, and trainers. LPI is a vendor neutral organization, but is used as the basic metric for several different curricula; including Comptia's Linux Plus.

Tonight we will be discussing several topics with Evan, including the current state of certification development, and we are sure we will discuss Evans recent trip to Europe.

Evan was one of the co-founders of LPI. Before taking the role as LPI President, he was a Vice President at Starnix Inc., a Linux-centric VAR located near Toronto. He registered his first Internet domain in 1986, has been involved with Unix even longer, and first started using Linux in 1996. He was a co-founder of the Canadian Linux Users' Exchange and has written on Linux issues for a number of publications. Evan has a degree in Philosophy from York University and a graduate degree in Journalism from Ryerson Polytechnic University. Evan presently lives in Ontario, Canada.
