LINUX Professional Institute Partner Meeting

linuxMunich on 17th October 2013
by Carsten Johnson

The LINUX Professional Institute (LPI) invited partners from the EMEA region to Munich. The objective was to inform about new developments and to share and to learn from best practice examples. LPI was one of the first NetAcad Resource Partners (NRP) and brings significant value for students with learning material on open source operating systems. 42 education experts and LPI business partners met at the Vocational Training School for ICT – the largest Cisco Networking Academy in Bavaria.

The LPI offers certificates like Linux Essentials and LPIC. They match perfect with networking skills like the CCNA. The combination of these courses let vocational training teachers meet the national curriculum standards. That is the reason why so many Academy instructors were among the participants of the LINUX partner meeting. The LPI started to roll out the Linux Essentials certificate and reports great success in the German market.

On European level the LPI is an active member of the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs and an industry partner for Cisco there. The alignment of the industry backed certification standards with the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) is a common initiative from LPI and Cisco.

The host institution, the Städtische Berufsschule für Informationstechnik in Munich, a vocational training school for ICT in Munich has published a script on Linux Essentials that can be used by other schools for free. It is available as a downloadable document on the school website.
