Product analyst

Rafael Saraiva Timbó, a product analyst for a solutions integrator company (VTI), compared certification programs and saw firsthand why the Red Hat® Certified Engineer (RHCE®) program is so beneficial. Timbó was first certified under the Microsoft training program, Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA). "As time went by, I started to notice a great deficiency regarding my knowledge on the Linux® platform," said Timbó. "I started to study and to investigate corporate distributions, which eventually lead me to Red Hat. My company has also grown to learn the benefits of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is currently a Red Hat partner."

Timbó has seen career advancements within his workplace thanks to his RHCE certification. He has also helped his company become a Red Hat user and partner, and has since began to develop solutions involving Red Hat products. Timbó's experience validates the credibility of the RHCE program. "Through the program I have advanced levels in my career and the certification has increasingly brought me closer to Red Hat. Today I can count on Red Hat in total support for the development of my personal projects as well as my company's projects," said Timbó. "The program has also brought me enormous visibility in the market and continues to prove its credibility among our customers and partners."
