You must be an RHCSA to earn a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification.


  • Experienced Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administrators seeking validation of their skills
  • Students who have attended Red Hat System Administration I and II and are on the path to earn RHCSA certification
  • Experienced Linux system administrators who require a certification either by their organization or based on a mandate (DOD 8570 directive)
  • IT professionals who are on the path to earn RHCE certification
  • An RHCE who is noncurrent or who is about to become noncurrent and wants to recertify as an RHCE
