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
Partnersin Malaysia: Faculty of Information Technology, Multimedia
University(MMU) and the Advanced Medical and Dental Institute,
Universiti SainsMalaysia  (USM).
"Malaysia has long been a leader in the adoption of Open
Sourcetechnology within their public sector and LPI is pleased to be
part ofthat effort.  In particular, these two new LPI training
partners fromMalaysia'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_...)
Ibrahim Yusof of the MMU noted that Faculty of Information
Technologychose to align with the LPI certification program so as to
ensure thattheir students had the highest level of technical skills
possible:"Linux is an important tool for every IT or Engineering
graduate. Linuxis popular in Malaysia, especially with developers and
systemadministrators. 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
producedover 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 ofInformation 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 andDental
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
TrainingParter (LPI-ATP) CBT-TECHNOLOGY.COM
(http://www.cbt-technology.com/) and LPI-ATP Asia Talk
(http://www.asiatalk.com.my/).
