Red Hat Certified Professionals Weigh In on Value of Certification

When it comes to finding I.T. talent, managers and recruiters have their work cut out for them. Just last year, CompTIA found that 93% of HR managers believe finding the right I.T. candidate for an open role is challenging. However, 91% of employers consider certifications vital in hiring and predicting employee success.

Red Hat conducted a survey of 160+ Red Hat Certified Professionals to learn how their certified status has helped them. We found that 93% of respondents believe that Red Hat's hands-on testing approach provides a better measure of skill and knowledge. In addition, we found that 84% believe their Red Hat certification has helped or will help them in their current job.
