"Linux Essentials" is an innovative new program measuring foundational knowledge in Linux and Open Source Software and will be publicly released in June 2012.  "Beta" exams are offered free to volunteers who wish to assist LPI in its exam development process for the "Linux Essentials" program.

During the month of May and early June, there will be various sessions for volunteers to take "beta" exams which are offered free of charge.  This volunteer effort will enable LPI to measure the "Linux Essentials" exam for quality, accuracy and relevancy.  All interested individuals who do not hold an existing Linux certification are invited to participate--however seating is limited to ten per session.

Successful candidates who pass the exam will be awarded a "Linux Essentials Certificate of Achievement".  Alternatively candidates may choose to have their exam results deleted from their registration record. Final exam scores for the volunteer "beta" exams will be available in late June 2012.

Each "beta" session is for ninety minutes and consists of sixty questions. To participate exam volunteers must obtain an LPI ID at https://cs.lpi.org/caf/Xamman/register and register in advance for the Linux Essentials "beta" exam with their focal point.

Targeted at new technology users, the "Linux Essentials" program is set to be adopted by schools, universities, educational authorities, training centers and others commencing June 2012.
