The RHCE® Rapid Track Course (RH299) is designed for senior Linux® system administrators who want to validate their competencies by earning the Red Hat® Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)andRed Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE)credentials. This is a fast-paced review course that combines the RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH199) and System Administration III (RH254) courses—normally 8 days of training—into a single 5-day course. Building on the students' extensive knowledge of command-line-based Linux administration, the course moves very quickly through the intermediate and advanced tasks covered by lab-based knowledge checks and facilitative discussions.
By the end of this course, the senior Linux administrator student will have been exposed to all the intermediate and advanced competencies tested by the RHCSA and RHCE exams. Exams sold separately.
