Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)
RHCSA is an entry-level certification that focuses on actual competencies at system administration, including installation and configuration of a Red Hat Enterprise Linux system and attach it to a live network running network services.
To achieve the RHCSA certification the student must pass EX200, a 2.5-hour hands-on lab exam. The minimum passing score for the exam is 210 out of 300 possible points (70%). There is no prerequisite for the exam, but Red Hat recommends preparing for the exam by taking courses in Red Hat System Administration (RH124 or RH134) if one does not have previous experience.
Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE)
Self-titled “the flagship” certification, RHCE is a mid- to advanced-level certification that builds on topics covered in the RHCSA certification to include more advanced topics such as Red Hat Linux Automation with Ansible (RH294) which teaches the skills needed to manage large numbers of systems and applications efficiently and consistently. In this course one will learn the techniques needed to use Ansible® to automate provisioning, configuration, application deployment, and orchestration.
This course is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 8 and Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.8.
