Today the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) and Canonical
Ltd. jointly announced the development of a certification exam
for the Ubuntu distribution. This certification exam will
enable qualified candidates to demonstrate specific expertise
in the professional use of Ubuntu <>. The
certification exam will be launched in Johannesburg, South
Africa, May 16 - 19, 2006.

The Ubuntu certification will consist of a single exam on top of
LPI's existing 101 and 102 exams. This will give candidates the
advantage of an existing global standard, LPIC-1, plus the
?Ubuntu Certified Professional? status. The exam is being
developed by LPI's product development team and Ubuntu
community members from around the globe. The exam is expected
to be completed in early May with the first paper exams being
available in mid-May to qualified LPIC-1 candidates who are
attending LinuxWorld Johannesburg. The computer-based testing
version will be made available later in June through Thomson
Prometric and Pearson VUE testing centres around the world.
Initial exam price has been set at $100 US.
