  The test objectives are freely available (POMS), with the intention that
anyone who likes can build a training program fit to it.  If they say so
much, no problem.  However, if they suggest their program is LPI approved,
that is questionable; we still have the option open to certify courses.  
LPIC will be the title for someone who passed the test, and training
vendors will not be allowed to abuse that word (like suggesting you will
be an LPIC just because you take their courses).
