Our third-annual Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) of the Year contest has officially kicked off – more details here. The contest is designed to recognize achievements of RHCEs from around the world who have particularly interesting or motivational success stories. Submissions are simply a response to the question, "why should you be considered RHCE of the Year?"
In the past, we’ve honored RHCEs from North America, Asia-Pacific and EMEA, but this year, we’ve expanded the contest to include two additional regions: South America and India. One winner will be selected from each of the five regions. The prize? A round-trip ticket to the Red Hat Summit – this year it’s in Boston, Mass. from June 18-20. We’ll have a special RHCE reception at the Summit, where our winners are presented to other Red Hat certified professionals, and then our winners will again be noticed during the Red Hat Innovation Awards ceremony on the last day of the event.
Red Hat certifications are industry-renowned performance-based tests that measure competency on live systems. The program offers five certification levels including: Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT), Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE), Red Hat Certified Security Specialist (RHCSS), Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) and Red Hat Certified Datacenter Specialist (RHCDS).
