Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced it is enhancing its Red Hat Certification program with the addition of three new Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) concentrations. The concentrations are focused on the company's datacenter, cloud, and application platforms and are designed to help personnel on their journey to becoming a RHCA – the highest level of certification offered by Red Hat.
"Technology professionals with datacenter, cloud, application platform, and open source software skills are in demand. Our new Red Hat Certified Architect concentrations are built to address this demand. Most importantly, they allow technology professionals to position themselves as experts on Red Hat's leading open source software solutions."
Today, enterprise architecture includes traditional datacenters, hybrid clouds, and other solutions. The new RHCA concentrations are tracks, recommended by Red Hat, that are designed to prove and verify technical professionals’ skills and knowledge on Red Hat solutions for each of these solutions.
To earn the title of RHCA, one must attain Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) status and acquire at least five of the eligible certifications, each of which cover different product and solution areas. Participants select the concentration they wish to focus on.

The Red Hat certification program also offers a portal that provides online verification, the ability to search for certified individuals, and other services. Prospective employers and clients can use the portal to verify an individual’s credentials and find qualified professionals who can help them get the most out of their IT infrastructure. Only certifications and certificates that are considered current are reported, verified, or found through a search. Red Hat Certified Professionals must agree to Terms and Conditions and map their certification IDs to have their information displayed.
A Red Hat certification provides validation of knowledge and expertise that is beneficial to both individuals and their employers. The certification program gives employers and managers ways to find and develop qualified professionals. It also helps individuals prove their skills with Red Hat's solutions.
