BSD Professional Certification Job Task Analysis Survey Launched

BSD Professional Certification Job Task Analysis Survey Launched

September 9, 2009 - The BSD Certification Group is pleased to announce the launch of the Job Task Analysis Survey for the BSD Professional Certification.

This survey is designed to collect the views of both the BSD community and employers on the kinds of tasks that are performed by advanced BSD system administrators in their day-to-day duties. The survey records the Importance and Frequency for these tasks for later psychometric analysis.

The survey will assist the BSD Certification Group in clarifying what material should be covered in the exam objectives for the BSD Professional Certification Exam. It is an important first step in the certification process. It is also an excellent way for the BSD community to get directly involved in the certification effort.

The survey features a standard browser interface and takes approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. Translations of the survey are underway and should be available within several days. They will be announced as soon as they are available. All surveys will be available for a period of several weeks. The final end date for the English survey will be October 16, 2009.

We encourage everyone to complete the survey themselves, and refer others to the survey. If you know any employers, educators, or others who may be interested in BSD certification, please let them know about the survey.
