LPI Announces Academic Training Partners in Malaysia


(Sacramento, CA, USA: October 11, 2011) The Linux Professional Institute  (LPI), the world's premier Linux certification organization (http://www.lpi.org), and its affiliate, LPI-Asia Pacific (http://www.lpi-apac.org/) announced new LPI-Approved Academic Partners in Malaysia: Faculty of Information Technology, Multimedia University (MMU) and the Advanced Medical and Dental Institute, Universiti Sains Malaysia  (USM).

"Malaysia has long been a leader in the adoption of Open Source technology within their public sector and LPI is pleased to be part of that effort.  In particular, these two new LPI training partners from Malaysia's leading academic institutions is indicative of the efforts of  our affiliate in the region, LPI-APAC, to reach out to that country's IT  training organizations," said Jim Lacey, president and CEO of LPI.  Mr.  Lacey pointed out that LPI first announced a partnership program for  Malaysia's IT training organizations in February (see: http://www.lpi.org/eng/about_lpi/what_s_new/lpi_develops_academic_program_in_malaysia)


Ibrahim Yusof of the MMU noted that Faculty of Information Technology chose to align with the LPI certification program so as to ensure that their students had the highest level of technical skills possible: "Linux is an important tool for every IT or Engineering graduate. Linux is popular in Malaysia, especially with developers and system administrators. Therefore, if you are LPI certified as Linux-proficient,  your career choices are that much wider."


MMU is Malaysia's first private university and since 1997 has produced over 26,000 graduates. MMU is focused in the fields of Engineering, Information Technology, Business and Management, Creative Multimedia, Accounting, Law, Medical IT and Bio-Informatics. The Faculty of Information Technology (FIST) at Melaka (http://fist.mmu.edu.my) and the  Faculty of Information Technology (FIT) at Cyberjaya (http://fit.mmu.edu.my) will be providing Linux training courses towards the LPI certification program.


Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) through the Advanced Medical and Dental Institute (AMDI: http://www.amdi.usm.edu.my/) also offers  training programs towards all three levels of LPI certification (LPIC-1, LPIC-2 and LPIC-3).  USM was established in 1969 and has offered courses  at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels to approximately 20,000  students.  Prof. Tan Sri Dato' Dzulkifli Abdul Razak, the Vice-Chancellor of USM noted the growing importance of Open Source Software in Malaysia as one of the reasons that the USM adopted an LPI training program: ""Open source means that anyone can and has the right to obtain access to the technology. It is not commodity-based and is not just accessible to those who can afford it.  This means that we can  share any technologies that have been developed for the people and everyone has the same rights to use the technology."

Other LPI training partners in Malaysia include LPI Approved Training Parter (LPI-ATP) CBT-TECHNOLOGY.COM (http://www.cbt-technology.com/) and LPI-ATP Asia Talk (http://www.asiatalk.com.my/).

For more information on LPI's training partner program please see: http://www.lpi.org/training

The Linux Professional Institute is globally supported by the IT industry, enterprise customers, community professionals, government entities and the educational community. LPI's certification program is supported by an affiliate network spanning five continents and is distributed worldwide in multiple languages at more than 7,000 testing locations. Since 1999, LPI has delivered over 290,000 exams and 95,000 LPIC certifications around the world.
