I'm once again standing for election to the BSD Certification Group Board of Directors.
During the last 5 years, we have accomplished a great deal with the development
and launch of the BSD Associate Exam, and I would like to see our momentum continue.
Looking ahead, we are now actively working on the BSD Professional Certification
which we are hoping to officially launch later this year. We are aiming to make
this certification a solid player- a psychometrically valid written exam and hands-on
lab combination that will test actual performance as well as recognition and
comprehension on BSD system administration tasks.
We are also looking at ways to expand our exam offerings through partnerships
with other organizations. If we can make this happen, it will make it much easier
to take the BSDCG exams domestically and (hopefully!) internationally.
There are other initiatives on the table that will place BSDCG certifications
at the forefront of Open Source certification efforts. These initiatives would
require a long term committment to push through, but I believe they would be
well worth the investment in time, effort, and financial resources.
It is my earnest desire to continue to work as a full board member within the BSDCG
to advance these and other initiatives that continue to push BSD systems ahead in the
wider computing community.
With Best Regards to All,
