RHCE of the Year, North America, 2007
"The RHCE did not help me climb the ladder; it introduced me to a new one."
Robert Bridal, the 2007 Red Hat® Certified Engineer (RHCE®) of the Year winner in North America, has seen the benefits of the RHCE program through new job opportunities. "Five years ago I was working in a factory making rubber parts," said Bridal. "Three years ago I was a computer technician fixing spyware. Last year I was a network technician fixing printers and resetting passwords. Seven months ago I became an RHCE. Today, I am a network engineer, controlling Red Hat Enterprise Linux® servers in multiple locations across the nation. I have traveled to many parts of the nation, I am responsible for massive budgetary expenditures, and I design and implement new and exciting systems on a daily basis. The RHCE did not help me climb the ladder; it introduced me to a new one."
