"I am now very confident of handling even the most challenging situations. I think that this is the greatest value of the RHCE certification."

The Red Hat® Certified Engineer (RHCE®) certification is a very valuable certification. From an IT industry perspective, the credibility of IT certifications varies tremendously in Korea.

For some certification exams, students can just memorize the answers to questions already used in previous exams. As a result, it is easy for individuals to pass these exams. Thus, these international certifications lack credibility. The RHCE Certification is very different as the exam is difficult. In addition, there is a unique hands-on component testing your ability to solve and perform real-world tasks.

Before, I used Linux® in many ways. However, throughout the course, I was reminded of Linux features and functionalities that are not frequently used. I was very satisfied with the training, particularly with course materials that included a well-organized collection of useful white papers. In addition, the lecturer made the class fun and interactive.

The most interesting part of the training was the section on troubleshooting. It was thrilling because we had to solve the problems within a limited time. Troubleshooting under such challenging conditions is a valuable skill that can be applied widely in the real-world.

During the RHCE process, I went through various practical and troubleshooting sessions that provided tips to tackle real-world tasks. I am now very confident of handling even the most challenging situations. I think that this is the greatest value of the RHCE certification. The RHCE exams also offered me a rare opportunity to deepen my own understanding about Red Hat Enterprise Linux. I would definitely recommend my friends and acquaintances to take the RHCE course and exam.

There is no doubt that the RHCE exam is extremely tough. However, it certainly gave me a great sense of personal achievement when I received the certification.

Now, I am not satisfied with being just a RHCE; I am now preparing to acquire the RHCA (Red Hat Certified Architect) certification. Acquiring the RHCA certification will be a challenge, but I am convinced that the sense of achievement will be that much greater when I pass the exam.
