RH299 RHCE Rapid Track Course

The RHCE® Certification Lab is designed for delegates seeking a hands-on, lab-based review prior to taking the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam. Delegates taking this course should have already completed their classroom training and simply be preparing to take or retake the exam.

More details

More info

During the 4-day course, delegates will work at their own pace through the complete set of labs from both the RHCSA [Red Hat Certified System Administrator] Rapid Track course (RH199) and Red Hat System Administration III. The RHCE Certification Lab course includes a few instructor lectures designed to review key technologies such as systemd, firewalld, and IPv6. For the classroom and virtual classroom versions of this course, an instructor will be available throughout the week to assist delegates as they work through the labs.

Please Note: Effective 28th July 2014 this course will be based on RHEL 7. The course will now be conducted as a guided-lab environment, with little-to-no lecture. It is important to note that this course is designed for an audience who already has the skills and knowledge needed for the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) Exam (EX300), which will also be on version 7.

The Exam EX300 is NOT included and is an additional £470.

Target Audience:

  • RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or earlier who wish to recertify on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • Students who previously attempted the RHCE exam, did not pass, and wish to retake the exam
  • Students who have completed the RHCE track courses (Red Hat System Administration I, II, and III or equivalent) and would like additional hands-on practice prior to taking the RHCE exam
