RHEL-8

The Red Hat® Training and Certification team is updating all Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® courses and certification exams to be aligned with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 product release. Here’s a simple guide for you to know about the changes in the Red Hat Certified Engineer Learning Path.

WHY ARE THEY MAKING THE CHANGES?
IT organizations are facing challenges related to scaling infrastructure efficiently. People are turning to Red Hat Ansible® Automation as a common language to automate across different functions. As a result, system administrators need to understand more than how to deploy, configure, and manage an operating system.

HOW IS THE RHCE CREDENTIALING CHANGING?
The new RHCE pathway is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, which will be supplemented by a new course and exam. The course and the corresponding certification—Red Hat System Administration III: Linux Automation (RH294) and Red Hat Certified Engineer exam (EX294)—will focus on the automation of Linux system administration tasks using Ansible and shell scripting.

WHAT IS NOT CHANGING?
RHCE is earned by having first passing Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam and then passing the RHCE exam. The RHCE exam (EX300) will remain available on version 7.

WHAT ARE THE TIMELINES?
The RHCSA exam (EX200) will be updated and the new RHCE exam (EX294) will be available in June after Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is released. EX300 will be available one year after the release.
