Ten junior and enterprise-level engineers from Manchester-based hosting company UKFast sat the newly developed LPIC1 exam – to be officially launched in January 2015 – to test it for consistency, ambiguity and accuracy. They were then invited to provide feedback on the questions, available answers and conditions of the exam.
Linux’s LPIC exams face a minor upgrade every 2.5 years and a major upgrade every 5 years. Academic and commercial institutes are then welcomed to offer their time to trial the BETA version of the exams before they’re introduced to the rest of the industry.
UKFast volunteered its already fully-certified Linux engineers to take part in the process, alongside Birmingham City University and the Dublin Institute of Technology.
