Starting from May 15, 2014 it is no longer required to be RHCE to take the following exams:

  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Server Hardening Exam (EX413),
  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Clustering and Storage Management Exam (EX436),

Red Hat Certificates of Expertise are now only valid for 3 years. The ones passed before October 1, 2014 will be valid until October 1, 2017.

The Red Hat Certified Architect certification (RHCA) now requires RHCE certification plus success to any five of the following Red Hat exams:

  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Administration,
  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Hybrid Cloud Storage (EX236),
  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Platform-as-a-Service (EX280),

  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Security: Networking Services (EX333)*,
  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Directory Services and Authentication (EX423)*,
  • Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in SELinux Policy Administration (EX429)*.

*These exams are no longer offered but can still count for RHCA certification.

After passing the five mandatory exams, any new exam passed will add a distinction to the RHCA certification: level I, level II, etc.
