Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source solutions to the enterprise, today launched Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) in ASEAN, its capstone certification to its current Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) and Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT) programs.
RHCA is the latest premium certification offering from Red Hat's Global Learning Services. The Enterprise Architect curriculum provides a higher level, in-depth hands-on training for senior technical IT administrators responsible for designing and managing their organization's infrastructure across many different systems. Deploying hundreds or thousands of systems in an enterprise environment demands particular skills and learning key lessons from RHCA in the classroom allow critical skills to be honed according to best practices in a safe environment.
“The proliferation of enterprise Linux adoption in this region over the last two years has driven a high demand for certified Linux professionals,” said Jamie Pride, Director of Asia Pacific Services for Red Hat. “With RHCA, IT professionals will acquire the skills necessary to plan, design and manage open source infrastructure in large complex environments consisting of many Linux systems across the enterprise.”
Mr Geoff Kingsmill, a Software Consultant for Hewlett-Packard (HP), agreed with the value of pursuing RHCA after completing the RHCT and RHCE courses. He said “ From both personal and professional perspectives, RHCA was the next logical step and I knew it would allow me to expand my knowledge and skills even further. HP has also seen the value in being able to offer customers support from a certified expert in the field.”
The Enterprise Architect curriculum comprises of five courses :
- RHS333, Red Hat's most comprehensive security training
- RH401, a course that explores system management for large organizations, including Red Hat's popular Red Hat Network (RHN) product
- RH423, in depth training on directory services and authentication
- RH436, a course on storage management and Global File System (GFS)
- RH442, performance tuning and monitoring
Each of the courses places an emphasis on integrating Linux with other technologies, including issues with heterogeneous environments.
In order to ensure high quality of training and certification, Red Hat has recently invested in a new laboratory and classroom in Singapore to facilitate hands-on learning experience on a live system. RHCA courses will be held at the Red Hat office in Singapore. More info on RHCA can be found on: https://www.redhat.com/training/architect/courses/
