First e-Competence Quality Label Awarded by EXIN to LPI

The LPI Linux Professional Certification Program has become the first to be awarded the e-Competence Quality Label. The Quality Label was officially handed out at the annual LPI EMEA meeting September 26th 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic by Maarten Dolf Desertine, business developer at EXIN. The e-Competence Quality Labels are supported by the European e-Skills Association with EXIN acting as an awarding body.

In attaining the e-Skills Quality Label designation, the Linux Professional Institute has proven that their certifications successfully map to the e-Competence Framework.

“The European e-Competence Framework is a critical initiative in today’s European workforce. By standardizing the language around ICT recruiting we can continue to help hiring managers recognize the best skilled candidates for the job,” said Klaus Behrla, Vice President, business development Europe for the Linux Professional Institute, “We at LPI are so pleased to have been awarded the e-Skills Quality Label for our professional Linux certifications.”

“In today’s e-Skills jungle the mismatch in existing and required knowledge are a problem for all stakeholders. Through the e-Skills Quality Label LPI has demonstrated that their exam objectives cover relevant and required standard competences and ICT profiles,” said Maarten Dolf Desertine.




This initiative was launched by the European Commission DG Enterprise and Industry in January 2013
