RedHat-IsoLogoWith all the changes coming with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Higher end certification program and the training around it, I’ve heard Red Hat admins ask, “But what about their certifications?” The reality is that not much has changed around Red Hat certifications at the basic levels. But if you’ve got your sights set higher for the RHCA and some of the speciality areas, things have changed a bit!

At the lower levels — Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) and Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) — nothing has really changed. You still need to take the same courses and exams (EX200 for the RHCSA and EX300 for the RHCE), and you’ll need both of these certifications to get your Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) certification.

What has changed at the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Higher end certification levels? Well, a lot.

Red Hat has retired two mid-tier certifications: Red Hat Certified Security Specialist (RHCSS) and Red Hat Certified Datacenter Specialist (RHCDS).

For the RHCA, you have some additional flexibility. To move from RHCE to RHCA — the pinnacle of Red Hat certifications, you must earn five higher-level specialty certifications. The choices have expanded beyond the Red Hat Certificates of Expertise to include Openstack and even JBoss application server certifications, for a total of 13 choices! If you earn more than five higher-level certifications, Red Hat recognizes that by designating you a higher-level RHCA. For example, earning seven of the below certifications would make you an RHCA Level II.

You can become an RHCA by earning RHCE plus any five of the following in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Higher end certification
