Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE)

A Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) is a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) who possesses the additional skills, knowledge, and abilities required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. An RHCSA certification is required in order to earn Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).



The RHCE exam is a hands-on, practical exam that lasts 2 hours. Candidates are eligible to take the RHCE exam without first having passed the RHCSA exam, but RHCE will not be issued until both credentials are earned by a candidate.

The target audience for this certification:

Experienced Linux IT professionals who currently have RHCSA certification, and are interested in earning an RHCE certification
Experienced Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administrators seeking validation of their skills
Students who have attended Red Hat System Administration I, II and III or RHCE Rapid Track Course
Experienced Linux system administrators who require a certification either by their organization, or based on a mandate (DOD 8570 directive)
RHCEs who are non-current , and have already passed the RHCSA exam
