About This Exam:
Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) is a performance-based test that measures actual competency on live systems. Called the "crown jewel of Linux certifications," RHCE proves an individual's ability to configure networking services and security on servers running a Red Hat OS. RHCE was recently named the hottest certification in all of IT by CertCities.com.
The certification exam consists of one part conducted in a single day session. The 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 RHCE Exam consist of one section lasting 3.5 hours.
In order to pass the Red Hat Certified Engineer exam, candidates must meet all of the following requirements:
70 percent or more on the RHCT-level skills.
70 percent or more on the RHCE-level skills.
These last two requirements enable RHCEs to demonstrate that they possess both RHCT-level and RHCE-level skills, as well as enabling a person who only has RHCT level skills to earn RHCT if they pass the required competencies.
