Red Hat Certified Engineer Exam


Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) is earned by a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) who has demonstrated the knowledge, skill and ability required of senior system administrator for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.

RHCSA certification is required in order to earn Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).

The RHCE exam is a hands-on, practical exam that lasts two 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 RHCE exam objectives provide authoritative guidance on the knowledge and skills candidates will need to demonstrate in the RHCE exam. They also provide more specific information on the exam format and coverage. All candidates are urged to use this information to evaluate their readiness for the exam.
