An IT professional who has earned the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA®) is able to perform the core system administration skills required in Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments. 82% of all job postings on popular job sites seeking IT professionals with Linux certifications are for Red Hat Certified Professionals.

Benefits to Red Hat® Certification

To earn a Red Hat certification, you must pass a hands-on, practical exam in which you complete real-world tasks using these technologies rather than just being asked questions about the technology. Employers know that in order to pass these certification exams the technologist must actually know how to implement and configure the technologies in question.

The knowledge and skills of a company’s IT staff determine the success of their technologies, which translate into the success of the business. Without a well-trained IT staff, employers sacrifice performance and security, and do not fully reap the price and performance benefits of their environment. The RHCSA and RHCE also qualify as the operating system certification for various compliance requirements for both federal and state contracting.

The certification holder is registered with Red Hat as a certificate holder in the respective technologies, which can be verified by employers.
