certified BSD

Apr. 28, 2008 -- Today, the BSD Certification Group, Inc., announced
its first certified BSD Associates (BSDA). The BSDA certification,
which began development in late 2006, was officially launched in
February 2008. The BSDA certification measures common skills needed
by entry-level BSD Unix system administrators.

The candidates took the proctored exams at the SCALE, FOSDEM, or
Linux-Tage Chemnitz conferences. According to the psychometrician,
79 percent of the tests received a passing score of 61 or higher
and the highest score was 95 percent.

Based on a job task analysis, the BSDA covers seven weighted knowledge
domains, which include installation, security, filesystems, user
management, networking, and various basic system administration
and Unix skills. The skills target the DragonFly BSD, FreeBSD,
NetBSD and OpenBSD operating systems.

"We'd like to thank the conferences that provided space and assisted
in making it a success -- and thank the proctors who traveled on
their own dime," said Jeremy C. Reed of the BSD Certification

Upcoming BSDA examinations will be held at BSDCan, CONFidence,
NYCBSDCON, and other technical conferences across the globe.  To
