RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE)

The Red Hat® Certified Engineer (RHCE®) certification is designed for the RedHat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) who wishes to earn a more senior-level credential, or experienced senior system administrators who have not yet certified.

RHCE's typically possess additional skills, knowledge, and abilities required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux® systems. RHCE® would be the next step for RedHat training participants that have completed System Administration I, II, and III.

Certification Requirements

Candidates for RHCE must also earn a RHCSA certification on the same Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version. Candidates may take the RHCE Exam (EX300) before the RHCSA Exam (EX200), but the RHCSA must be earned before RHCE is awarded.

The RHCE Exam consists of 1 section lasting up to 2 hours. It is a performance-based exam, therefore candidates must perform tasks on a live system, not just answer questions about how someone might perform certain tasks. Therefore, real-world experience is very important for preparing for this hands-on exam.
