LPI works with organizations around the world to ensure the growth and adoption of Linux, Open Source and Free Software. This work involves a strategy of assisting and co-operating with existing organizations that share similar interests. Our “Regional Enablement Initiative” focuses on identifying the best partner organizations in regions around the globe that are best suited for the task of promoting Linux professionalism and are also able, with our assistance, to identify other partner organizations.
LPI, as a vendor-independent organization, does not have an “official” single method of test preparation. We encourage publishers, schools and training centers to work together within the community to encourage choice, flexibility and innovation. Nevertheless, we also encourage the development of traditional training programs through our LPI Approved Training Partners (LPI-ATP) and LPI Approved Academic Partners (LPI-AAP).
The success of our certification program depends on the input of IT professionals and enterprises, training partners, book publishers, and exam candidates. We also look to international affiliate organizations who do the important work of promoting and marketing our certification program. In addition, we rely on the important financial contributions of corporate sponsors to assist us with the funding of new program development. Finally, we look to volunteers to assist us with our many organizational activities.
