Certifications

Red Hat Certifications

Red Hat’s performance-based certifications are among the most highly regarded in the IT industry. A Red Hat certification means you have proven your skills by passing a performance-based test of the tasks you need to perform your job.

Prove Your Skills, Not Just Your Knowledge

Red Hat certifications prove that you have mastered key tasks for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and more. Organizations hiring employees, contractors, and consultants can look to Red Hat certifications as input while making hiring, assignment, promotion, and other management decisions. Similarly, individuals who earn these certifications benefit by having official, impartial validation of their skills and knowledge.

See details and descriptions for all of the certification exams you can access at Red Hat Summit below and don’t forget all our 4-hour exams are 50% off MSRP and offered as Individual Exam Sessions. You can register for all certification exams when you complete your conference registration.
