The performance-based Red Hat® Certified Engineer Exam (EX300) tests to determine if your knowledge, skill, and ability meet those required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux® systems. Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification is required to earn RHCE® certification. An RHCE certification is earned by an RHCSA who has demonstrated the knowledge, skill, and ability required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems.

  • Candidates must have earned their RHCSA certification to be eligible to become an RHCE.
  • The certification exam is performance-based, meaning that candidates must perform tasks on a live system, rather than answering questions about how one might perform those tasks.
  • The hands-on nature of this exam makes real-world experience a critical facet of preparation.
