Red Hat Launches Remote Certification Exams
August 10, 2020

Red Hat announced the launch of Red Hat remote certification exams.

In response to the changing landscape of the workplace and the need to deliver expertise to customers and partners where they are, Red Hat Global Training and Certification developed remote exams to provide an alternative to in-person testing.

Ken Goetz, VP Training & Certification, Red Hat, said: "Our ability to provide remote exams will not only address current challenges, but will also open up opportunities to reach more IT professionals who may not have been able to take an in-person exam in the past."

For the last 20 years, the Red Hat Global Training and Certification program has had a single goal: validating skills through a program with rigorous, hands-on testing. Red Hat Certification can help system administrators, application developers and IT architects advance their careers and help close the skills gap facing the IT industry. Red Hat Global Training and Certification establishes benchmarks for what an IT professional should know when using Red Hat technology.

As of today, four of the most in-demand Red Hat certification exams are available for remote delivery:

- Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam (EX200V8K): This exam tests knowledge in areas of system administration common across a wide range of environments and deployment scenarios. The skills tested in this exam are the foundation for system administration and cover all Red Hat products.

- Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam (EX294V8K): This exam tests knowledge and skills in managing multiple systems using Red Hat Ansible Engine and executing common system administration tasks across a number of systems with Ansible. Ansible is the automation framework used by multiple Red Hat products, so Red Hat Certified Engineers have a head start on automating other products in the catalog beyond Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

- Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Administration exam (EX280V42K): Containers and Kubernetes are emerging as dominant deployment paradigms in today's enterprise IT organizations. This exam tests the knowledge, skills, and ability to create, configure and manage a cloud application platform using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

- Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Application Development exam (EX288V42K): This exam tests the ability to deploy existing applications in a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment.

All of the above listed exams count on the certification path to achieving Red Hat’s highest certification level, Red Hat Certified Architect.

Remote exams are delivered using a live environment running on candidates' X86_64, Fedora-compatible systems and cloud-based environments, and are observed by a remote proctor.
