RHCE 8 Exam Presentation
The RHCE exam (Red Hat Certified Expert), also called EX294, is a performance-based exam lasting 4 hours, focusing on automation on RHEL 8 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8).
You can take the exam in a classroom setting monitored by a proctor or in a Individual Exam Session (IES) remotely monitored.
You need to pass both RHCSA & RHCE exams to become certified RHCE (you can take both exams in any order, but as the RHCE exam requires very advanced knowledge compared to the RHCSA exam, it is normally logical to take the RHCSA exam before).
If you’ve got a valid RHCSA 7 certification, you can directly take the RHCE 8 exam without taking the RHCSA 7 exam.
Information about the RHCSA 8 exam is available here.
Red Hat exams are covered by a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement): anybody taking an exam can’t talk about it. For this reason, all quiz or sample exams in this website are based on exam objectives and not on real questions, even though the level of difficulty is similar.
After taking the exam and in the next three days, you will receive an email with your result (the pass mark is 210 out of 300).
After many years of complaints, Red Hat now provides a breakdown of performance across a number of topic categories after each exam (more details here).
Red Hat provides the options for keeping your certification current.
