RHCSA & RHCE 6 last call.

Share this link

If you plan to take the RHCSA 6 or RHCE 6 exams, you’ve got to hurry because these exams will be withdrawn in two to three weeks.

As RHCSA 7 is not too different from RHCSA 6, it will not be too painful if you miss the date.

It’s going to be an other song if you wanted to take the RHCE 6 exam, because the v7 is an other world: you will have to start almost from scratch! Firstly, it’s now 3.5 hours instead of 2. Secondly, topics are different: network (teaming, bonding, ipv6, etc), Kerberos (NFS+Samba), security (firewalld), storage (iSCSI), and database (MariaDB).

If you thought about taking the RHCE 6 exam, book it now and work hard to pass it at the first attempt!

So long as you purchase the voucher for the exam by Feb 28, 2015, you have *1 year* to actually take the exam, effectively pushing out… Read more »


Thats a good news I think. I am looking to give RHCSA in couple of months and just started on RHEL 7 but as we also have CentOS 6 at work and wouldn’t be changing any time , I would prefer to give RHEL 6 exams. I am very new to Red Hat certifications , can you please confirm what does ‘Kiosk only’ means and what exactly is Kiosk based exam. Also the link ( http://servicesblog.redhat.com/2014/12/04/red-hat-special-offer-on-red-hat-enterprise-linux-6-curriculum/ ) mentions about extension to 28 Feb 2015, and you have concluded that this essentially means we can give exams until 28 Feb 2016… Read more »


Ignore the 1 year part, just read that at the bottom of the redhat blog post.
