New training materials for LPIC-2 courses by AT Computing

(Kassel, Germany, and Nijmegen, The Netherlands, 3 november 2008): LPI Central Europe ( and AT Computing (, the first dutch LPI Approved Training Partner (LPI ATP), announce the production of new LPIC-2 training materials in dutch language by authors and trainers at AT Computing. The LPIC-2 certification consists of the two exams LPI 201 and LPI 202. Since the beginning of the partnership with LPI in late 2006, AT Computing has made remarkable steps in Linux* training in combination with LPI certification. Meanwhile the company is above break-even for LPIC-1 trainings and has trained around 100 LPIC students in 2008. A lot of former students of LPIC-1 courses and highly qualified professionals now ask for trainings in the second level of the three-level LPIC program.

Emiel Brok, account manager at AT Computing, said: "We looked at the available training-materials for LPI several times, but none of them were meeting our quality standards. This is why we have invested a lot of time in developing our own training materials. Lately we see more and more in return for this. Not only in number of students, but more importantly in the evaluation forms we get back from our students. We often receive feedback like "I'm working with Linux now for several years, but only during the AT Computing LPI training that the jigsaw-pieces fell on their place."

The training materials are developed by AT Computing and will be certified as „LPI Approved Training Materials (LPI ATM)“. All trainers at AT Computing are LPI certified on the respective level they give their courses. First LPIC-2 trainings are scheduled for june 2009 at Nijmegen.

Both AT Computing and LPI will be present at the show „LinuxWorld 2008“ ( at 12th and 13th of november at the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht with a booth in hall 9. The booth of AT Computing is at no. A011 and the booth of LPI is at no. A007.
