Red Hat

Red Hat is one of the most popular vendors of Linux and open source technology. Unlike CompTIA and LPI, Red Hat sponsors vendor certifications.

It offers two enterprise Linux server system and network administration certs: the advanced-level certification for Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) and the mid-level Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT).

 

 

The Red Hat Certified Technician

The Red Hat Certified Technician certification is a mid level certification for IT professionals. RCHTs focus on connecting new Linux systems to existing corporate networks. The RHCT entails passing one exam, exam RH202. It is a subset of the RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) exam and is a half-day long hands-on lab exam.

 

The RHCT certification emerged in January 2003, four years after the release of the more advanced RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) certification.

The Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE)

RHCE was the highest level of Linux certifications for a long time. "King of Linux Certs". RHCEs are senior system administrators who typically handle such tasks as setting up corporate servers and networks, including Web servers.

 

This high level certification consists of a full-day long hands-on lab exam, RH302, and may be taken at the same locations as the RHCT.

Interestingly the RHCE covers the same material as the RHCT, in addition to more advanced material. It is therefore possible for a candidate to fail the RHCE yet pass the RHCT portion and become certified as an RHCT.

RHCSS validates security expertise in using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SELinux, and Red Hat Directory Server in the enterprise environment. It is first Linux certification to focus on security. The RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) is a required prerequisite.

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
