LPI invites you to connect with us on LinkedIn. We have several groups to give you a forum to ask questions, network with other LPI professionals, and participate with the global LPI community. Since there are several similar groups out there that are not managed by LPI, we’ve included links to our official page and LPI groups below to help you connect.

LPI, as a vendor-independent organization, does not have an "official" single method of test preparation. We encourage publishers, schools and training centers to work together within the community to encourage choice, flexibility and innovation. Nevertheless, we also encourage the development of traditional training programs through our LPI Approved Training Partners (LPI-ATP) and LPI Approved Academic Partners (LPI-AAP).

LPI Approved Training Partner (LPI-ATP) and LPI Approved Academic Partner Program (LPI-AAP)

The LPI-ATP and LPI-AAP Program differentiates and substantially increases the objective standing of training organizations by showing a higher level of commitment to LPI through the use of third party training materials, LPI certified instructors, and adherence to LPI's Training and Academic Code of Ethics.

In countries where we have Regional Partners, our program is run by our local Regional Partners.
