Training & Certifications


The RHCE® Certification lab (RH300) is designed for students seeking a hands-on, lab-based review prior to taking the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam. Students taking this course should have already completed their classroom training and simply be preparing to take or retake the exam.

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


At the end of the program, the participants will be able to :

  1. Manage and troubleshoot systemd services during the boot process
  2. Understand and configure network configuration and basic troubleshooting
  3. Manage local storage, create and use file systems
  4. Implement firewall management with firewall
  5. Automate installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux® using kickstart
  6. Manage SELinux settings
  7. Use NFS and Samba shared filesystems
  8. Understand network port security and link aggregation
  9. Understand how to configure iSCSI initiator and target configuration
  10. Understand Domain Name System (DNS) troubleshooting and caching name server
  11. Provide Network File System (NFS) and Server Message Block (SMB) file servers
  12. Understand Apache HTTPD web server management
  13. Configure MariaDB SQL datbase configuration
  14. Use Postfix Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) nullclient for servers
  15. Use Bash scripting for automation

This course is aimed at:

  1. RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or earlier who wish to recertify on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
  2. Participants who previously attempted the RHCE exam, did not pass, and wish to retake the exam.
  3. Participants 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

This program is 4 days of intensive training class.


Participants are required to have completed Red Hat System Administration I, II, and III or equivalent training. It is highly recommended students take our online skills assessment prior to enrolling in this course. Extensive UNIX administration experience by itself is not adequate for most students.


At the end of the program, the participants will be assessed with 3,5 hours of Red Hat® Certified Engineer Exam.


Red Hat® Certified Engineer Certification will be awarded upon successfully passing the exam from Red Hat.
