Overview of Red Hat Certification Program
The Red Hat certification program is going to aim at system administrators, engineers, architects, application administrators, and enterprise developers, as well as cloud and virtualization administrators, who are going to use RHEL in their IT infrastructures. The program aims to ensure that the candidates are proficient in RHEL by requiring them to pass the performance-based certification exams. While many certification exams ask multiple choice questions or filling the gaps typed questions about specific technologies, the Red Hat requires you to complete and perform real-world tasks using the Red Hat technologies so as to pass its exams.
Once you have earned a Red Hat certification, you would become a Red Hat Certified Professional. This would give you access to Red Hat Certification Central, which would allow you to connect with potential employers, by joining the Red Hat community, create study groups and collaborate on projects. Additionally, you can also explore Red Hat’s training options and individual exam sessions which are easily scheduled. Discounts on recertification exams are also going to be offered there.
Red Hat Administrator, Architect, and Engineer Certifications
The largest group of Red Hat certifications is geared toward the system administrators, architects, and engineers. Some of the most sought-after and popular Red Hat certifications reside in this category, like the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA), Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) and Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).
The RHCA is probably the Red Hat’s most versatile credential, which comes up with specialties in Cloud, Application Platform, Application Development, Datacenter, and DevOps currently available. Over the past year, Red Hat has retired a great many of its credentials, as you could see from the long list of “Retired Certifications” at the company’s page of all Certifications.
RHCSA: Red Hat Certified System Administrator Certification
The RHCSA certification is designed for the experienced Red Hat administrators and is required by some organizations so as to meet U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570. It’s also a prerequisite credential for that would be required to gain before we obtain the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).
Red Hat is going to recommend, the three training classes in order to prepare for the RHCSA certification. The Windows admin classes are Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) as well as the Red Hat System Administration II (RH134). Candidates should also take a Linux/UNIX admin class — RHCSA Rapid Track Course RH199 — to prepare for the RHCSA exam.
To obtain the RHCSA certification, candidates would be required to pass the 2.5-hour RHCSA Exam (EX200).
RHCE: Red Hat Certified Engineer
The RHCE certification is geared en route for experienced senior system administrators and completes the requirements of U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570.
So as to obtain the RHCE certification, you would be first certified with RHCSA. The recommended training for the RHCE certification would be based on the skill level of candidates. Windows admins who have minimal Linux experience should take the Red Hat System Administration I and II (RH124 and RH134) courses, along with the Red Hat System Administration III (RH254) course so as to prepare for the exam.
Whether UNIX or Linux is going to administration with one to three years the Red Hat System Administration III (RH254) of experience should take both the certification as well as RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH199) courses so as to prepare for the exam. The RHCEs holders who are looking forward to recertifying, or the candidates who’d like the opportunity to engage themselves in a lab-based review before taking the RHCE exam, should take the RHCE Certification Lab (RH299). The certification lab is a four day, instructor-led opportunity in order to work through all of the labs from the Red Hat System Administration I, II and III courses, along with the Rapid Track course.
To complete the RHCE certification, you would have to pass the 3.5-hour RHCE Exam (EX300), which would be currently being based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
