Icon-Red_Hat-Media_and_documents-Quotemark_Open-B-Red-RGB The Red Hat Learning Subscription really helped prepare me for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator Certification Exam. Not only were there videos on each chapter, but there was a written version as well. The labs were a tremendous help for me since I am a very hands-on learner. I don’t think I would have been able to pass the test without using them to study.

Red Hat Learning Subscription user survey respondent

Icon-Red_Hat-Media_and_documents-Quotemark_Open-B-Red-RGB I’ve learned that certification is important because of how the courses are structured and what is tested at the end. Knowing that people have to build the environment them- selves as part of the exam ensures that they know how to do it. This is very valuable.
