Prepare for the Red Hat Certified Engineer exam

The RHCE® Certification lab (RH299) is a facilitated lab environment for students to work at their own pace through a hands-on review prior to taking the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam (EX300).

Students attending this lab should have already completed their classroom training and simply be preparing to take or retake the exam. The delivery is focused primarily on lab time.

This version of the lab includes the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam (EX200) and Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam (EX300) on the final day of the lab

During the 4-day lab, students will work on their own through the complete set of labs from both the RHCSA (Red Hat Certified System Administrator) Rapid Track (RH199) and Red Hat System Administration III (RH254). The RHCE Certification Lab includes a few lectures designed to review key technologies such as systemd, firewalld, and IPv6. For the classroom and virtual classroom versions of this lab, a facilitator will be available throughout the week to assist students as they work through the exercises. Exam is taken on day 5

Target Audience:

  • RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or earlier who wish to recertify on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • Students who previously attempted the RHCE exam, did not pass, and wish to retake the exam
  • Students who have completed the RHCE track courses (Red Hat System Administration I, II, and III or equivalent) and would like additional hands-on practice prior to taking the RHCE exam
