RHCE Basics

Red Hat Training and Certification

Red Hat certifications are among the most respected credentials in IT. Users demonstrate their skill by way of a performance-based exam, proving they have the ability to solve problems and execute real-world tasks. Red Hat offers a full range of education credentials—from RHCE (the leading Linux certification*) to Red Hat Certified Architect (a broad and deep certification for senior system administrators managing many systems in a large enterprise environment).

Choosing the right certification path depends on your background, job role, and employment goals. Whether you have advanced or minimal experience, Red Hat has the training that will help you to develop hands-on, real-world skills needed for both the job and the exams.

Ten years of RHCE

We've been awarding the RHCE certification for a decade. Today, the IT industry supports approximately 40,000 RHCEs spread across more than 150 countries. We're the number one IT education certification*. With countless classes and more than a few awards under our belt, we're in the mood to celebrate. And though it's our anniversary, we're giving you the presents. RHCEs (or those who'd like to become RHCEs) can enjoy special promotional pricing, RHCE-related sweepstakes, and other goodies.
