Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) Certification Path – Centriq Training

 

Are you ready for the new Red Hat? The Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system has gone under a facelift, creating a total platform change for the first time in almost 5 years. These system changes bring new learning paths for users, upgrading all certifications to follow the path to RHEL 8 to eventually achieve the status of Red Hat Certified Engineer and Certified Specialist.

Building Blocks of Red Hat

Red Hat training starts you off on the ground level and builds up your certifications. Each certification you receive through Red Hat strengthens your Linux system administration skills and validates the key tasks to become a full-time Linux administrator within your organization. Whether you already have some of your certifications within Red Hat or you are just getting started, RHEL has a path for you.

Red Hat Certified System Administrator

Like in RHEL 7, becoming a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) is still the first step to become a Red Hat Certified Engineer. The first two courses, RH124 and RH134, provide the foundation to Linux. This course is designed to train those even without previous Linux system administration experience and trains users on the “survival skills” needed to navigate through core administration tasks. It then builds off these skills and takes a deeper dive into the core of Linux system administration. Successful completion of both courses and passing the exam will grant you the Red Hat Certified System Administrator certification.

RHCSA Learning Path

  1. RH124—Red Hat System Administration I
  2. RH134—Red Hat System Administration II
  3. RHCSA Exam: EX200—Red Hat Certified System Administrator

 

Red Hat Certified Engineer

Once you become a RHCSA, you can move on to become a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE). RHEL 8 changes the curriculum from RHEL 7, creating a greater emphasis on the need for the automation knowledge required to deploy, manage, and support your organization’s architecture. Becoming a RHCE on Linux 8 is the next step in working towards a Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Best Practices.

RHCE Learning Path

  1. RH294—Red Hat System Administration III: Linux Automation (Releasing June 2019)
  2. RHCE Exam: EX294—Red Hat Certified Engineer

 

Are you a RHCSA, but completed your training under RHEL 7? Red Hat has created a course that will offer a rapid orientation to the changes between RHEL 7 and RHEL 8. Completion of this course will better prepare you to become a RHCE under RHEL 8.

RHCE Learning Path for RHEL 7 Users

  1. RH354—Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 New Features for Experienced Linux Administrators**
  2. RH294—Red Hat System Administration III: Linux Automation (Releasing June 2019)
  3. RHCE Exam: EX294—Red Hat Certified Engineer

 

Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Best Practices

If you are looking to expand your skills in automation even further, you can continue your education to become a Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Best Practices. This curriculum is expected to be released in 2020 to help fine-tune automation skills.

Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation Learning Path

  1. DO447—Advanced Automation with Ansible Best Practices
  2. Exam: EX447—Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation

 

The theme in the updated RHEL 8 curriculum is automation. These program changes are designed to help groom users from limited automation knowledge to become the in-house expert within their organizations.
