RedHat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)

The RHCSA certification is designed for experienced RedHat Enterprise Linux system administrators seeking to validate their existing skills, or anybody that is on the path to earn their RedHat Certified Engineer (RHCE®) certification.

Earning a RedHat certification has many benefits, amongst which is industry recognition, increased customer confidence, proof of knowledge, skills and much more.

Certification Requirements

The RHCSA certification exam consists of one section lasting up to 2.5 hours. It is performance-based, so that candidates will perform tasks on a live system rather than simply answer questions about how someone might perform certain tasks. Therefore, real-world experience is very important for preparing for this hands-on exam.
