With the official release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 happening yesterday, some certification rules are automatically triggered:
- All RHCTs/RHCSAs/RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be expired in 60 days, candidates need to pass both the RHCSA exam (EX200) and the RHCE exam (EX300) to get the RHCE certification again,
- All RHCSAs/RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 exceeding the 3 year period are expired (the RHCE exam date is the reference if both exams were passed, the date of the certificate of expertise in case one was passed),
- All RHCEs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or later not exceeding the 3 year period need only to pass the EX300 RHCE to get recertified (no need to pass the RHCSA again).
