Red Hat Training
Experts in the Red Hat technologies have the privilege of working among the best open source developers in the world. Red Hat training involves an extensive exploration of open source solutions, individuals certified in Red Hat technologies will be competent in administering Red Hat Linux server for network services and security. Red Hat trainee will gain innovative approach to open source technology useful in mission-critical and enterprise environments.
1. Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)
RHCSA certification course validates the individual’s skills in system administrators. The IT expert with RHCSA possesses essential system administrator skills that are mostly sought after in today’s IT industries.
An RHCSA Competencies:
Trainees will be able to:
Understand and use essential tools for handling files, directories, command-line environments, and documentation
Operate running systems, including booting into different run levels, identifying processes, starting and stopping virtual machines, and controlling services
Configure local storage using partitions and logical volumes
Create and configure file systems and file system attributes, such as permissions, encryption, access control lists, and network file systems
Deploy, configure, and maintain systems, including software installation, update, and core services
Manage users and groups, including use of a centralized directory for authentication
Manage security, including basic firewall and SELinux configuration
2. Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE)
Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) training programs equips the IT professionals to configure networking services and implement network and local security tasks on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6). As an advance level certification, RHCE validates the efficiency of the IT expert to manage a Linux workstation. Individuals who would earn a Red Hat certification must pass a hands-on, practical exam in which a real-world tasks must be completed using Red Hat technologies. Red Hat exams are thus distinguished because of their performance-based nature rather than answering multiple choice questions.
An RHCE Competencies:
Configuring static routes, packet filtering, and network address translation.
Setting kernel runtime parameters.
Configuring an Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) initiator.
Producing and delivering reports on system utilization.
Using shell scripting to automate system maintenance tasks.
Configuring system logging, including remote logging.
Configuring a system to provide networking services, including HTTP/HTTPS, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), network file system (NFS), server message block (SMB), Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), secure shell (SSH) and Network Time Protocol (NTP).
3. Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA)
RHCVA training and certification program equip system administrators with skills and knowledge to successfully manage virtual solutions. RHCVA validates the experts’ abilities to deploy and manage virtualization infrastructure. RHCVA training and certification program validates the IT professionals’ skills through interactive, practical- hands-on skills assessments.
An RHCVA Competencies:
Installing Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
Creating data centres, clusters, pools, and templates in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
Installing and configuring Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization hypervisors to support Linux® and Windows users and manage them using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
Performing essential management tasks such as logging and bookmarking.
Experience using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager and Hypervisor
Experience using and installing software on Microsoft Windows
RHCT or RHCSA certification or equivalent experience with Linux
System administration experience on Microsoft Windows is an added advantage
Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE 2-takes):
RHCE (2-takes) is a mid to advanced level certification for IT professionals and determines their efficiency to manage a Linux workstation. This certification is for individuals who are unable to pass the exam in the first attempt, offering 2 back to back takes on the RHCE exam. High in demand, RHCE training course equip the candidates to configure networking services and implement network and local security tasks on servers running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6).
4. Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA):
RHCA certification is an in-depth, hands-on training designed for senior Linux system administrators responsible for the deployment and management of many systems in large enterprise environments. Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) is a capstone certification to Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) and Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT). It is the most recognized and mature certifications in the Linux space.
The full RHCA curriculum consists of four advanced 400-level Enterprise Architect courses and an upper-level security course.
Only current RHCEs are eligible to be certified as a Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA), while anyone can attend the courses in this track.
Current RHCEs will obtain RHCA certification upon successfully passing all five Expertise Exams.
The courses are not required as the tests can be taken separately but they are strongly recommended.
Red Hat Certified Security Specialist (RHCSS):
RHCSS is a security certification that proves advanced skills in using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SELinux, and Red Hat Directory Server to meet the security requirements of today’s enterprise environment.
RHCE certified professionals will obtain RHCSS certification upon successfully passing all three Expertise Exams:
EX333 Red Hat Enterprise Security: Network Services
EX423 Enterprise Directory Services and Authentication
EX429 SELinux Policy Administration
These courses build on the security skills covered in the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) program, which is a prerequisite.
5. Red Hat Certified Datacenter Specialist (RHCDS):
RHCDS equip IT professionals with expertise in areas significant to mission critical data centre environments. RHCDS certification is required by RHCE certified professionals to utilize tools and to implement reliable, scalable and manageable solutions. The certification offers the flexibility to demonstrate additional skills in either directory services and authentication or in managing virtualized systems.
To become certified as an RHCDS, an RHCE has to demonstrate skills that are particularly useful in datacenter environments, such as systems deployment, systems management, clustering, and storage management.
RHCDS training program equips IT professionals with skills in directory services or authentication or in managing virtualized systems. Consequently, an RHCDS will have many, but not necessarily all, the following skills:
Installing and configuring a Red Hat Network Satellite server
Managing data using logical volumes and snapshots
Using Cobbler and Satellite to install, configure, and manage systems
Configuring users, groups, administrators, and activation keys on a Satellite
Configuring iSCSI targets and initiators
Creating base and child channels on a Satellite
Configuring a Kerberos realm
Configuring a GFS file system to meet performance, size, and quota objectives
