The BSD Certification Group is pleased to announce the launch
of a Task Analysis Survey. This survey is designed to collect
the views of both the BSD community and employers in an effort
to determine what kinds of tasks are performed by BSD system
administrators in their day-to-day duties. Also of interest
is the importance of each of these tasks as well as the level
of skill required for each.
The survey will assist the BSD Certification Group in clarifying
what material should be covered in the certification curriculum.
It is an important first step in the certification process. It
is also a way for the BSD community to get directly involved in
the certification effort.
This is a very comprehensive survey which will take approximately
<bold>one hour<un_bold> to complete. Due to the length of the
survey, it will be available until midnight GMT May 22, 2005 to
give everyone a chance to find time to complete the survey.
The survey is available at:
We encourage everyone to not only complete the survey themselves,
but to also refer others to the survey. If you know any employers
or educators who may be interested in BSD certification, please
let them know about the survey.
Translations of the survey are nearly complete and should be
available within a week. They will be announced as soon as they
are available and each translated survey will also be available
for a one month period. The following languages should be
en-us (American English)
pt-br (Brazilian Portuguese)
es-ar (Argentinian Spanish)
es-ve (Venezuelan Spanish)
zh-cn (Simplified Chinese)
es-mx (Mexican Spanish)
Please set aside some time to take the survey in the language
of your choice and help make BSD Certification a success. And-
you might win a free book! Details at the above URL.
