1 BSDA Quality Assurance
The process to establish quality of the questions assembled for the
BSDA certification so far has started. Special attention is being paid
to ensure that every question is valid for all BSD flavours, and that
no over-representation of any specific flavour is made. Quality
assurance is done by a group of subject matter experts (SMEs) that use
one or more BSD flavours for many years, with many of them actively
contributing to the development of one or more BSD operating systems.
The questions worked on for the BSD certification exam are under an
NDA and will not be made public. The topics covered by the exam are
made public on the BSD Certification Group website, though.
