Earn your Red Hat® Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification by passing a hands-on, lab-based exam that covers the core system administration skills Red Hat Enterprise Linux® environments require. A prerequisite for Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification, the RHCSA is an entry-level certification appropriate for system administrators as well as professionals in a variety of related roles, including database administrators, developers, and support technicians.
To earn RHCSA certification, you must demonstrate the skills required to successfully administer Linux. The RHCSA certification exam consists of one half-day session. The exam is performance-based, meaning that you must perform tasks on a live system rather than answering multiple-choice questions. The RHCSA exam can be bundled with a class or purchased separately (EX200). Individual Exam Sessions are also available (EX200K), providing you the flexibility to take the exam on a preferred date or time.
The RHCSA exam objectives provide authoritative guidance on the knowledge and skills you will need to demonstrate in the RHCSA exam. They also provide more specific information on the exam format and coverage.
