LPI exams during DebConf



LPI exams during DebConf7
-------------------------

The DebConf team is pleased to announce the availability of LPI exams
during DebConf7.

The Linux Professional Institute (LPI)[1] have offered to host LPI exams of
all three LPI levels during DebConf, so there will be exams for the LPIC-1
(101 and 102), LPIC-2 (201 and 202) and the new LPIC-3 (301 and 302)
levels. All the exams will be held in English. More information about the
contents of the exams is available from the LPI website.

LPI are offering a special price to all DebConf attendees who registered and
reconfirmed[2] before the deadline (2 May).  Any two of the above exams can be
taken for a combined price of 95 EUR. If, for any reason, an attendee is
not able to take both exams during DebConf itself, LPI will issue a
voucher, allowing the second exam to be taken at any other PBT exam
session within twelve months of issue.

For any attendees who did not reconfirm in time, the price of the
LPIC-1, LPIC-2 and the 302 exam will be 60 EUR, and the 301 will be 80
EUR, which is half of the normal price.

The exam fees should be paid in cash at the start of the exam session.


In order to attend the LPI exams, pre-register at the LPI website to
obtain a valid LPI-ID. You can do that by visiting

http://www.lpi.org/en/lpi/english/certification/register_now 

Exam candidates need to bring valid photo identification and this LPI-ID
number to the exam lab.

Once you have your LPI-ID, you also then need to register for the exams
themselves at

About DebConf:

DebConf is the Debian Project's developer conference.  In addition to a
full schedule of technical, social and policy talks, DebConf provides an
opportunity for developers, contributors and other interested people to
meet in person and work together more closely.  It has taken place
annually since 2000 in locations as varied as Canada, Finland and
Mexico.

DebConf is preceded by DebCamp, which is a smaller, less formal event
that gives an opportunity for group work on Debian projects.  Between
both events, DebianDay takes place.  DebianDay is a short conference
aimed at Debian users, and others interested in learning more about free
software.
