Course Description

This course is designed for individuals seeking a hands-on, lab-based review prior to taking the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam. People taking this course should have already completed their classroom training and simply be preparing to take or retake the exam. During the four-day course, you will work at your own pace through the complete set of labs from both the RHCSA [Red Hat Certified System Administrator] Rapid Track course (RH199) and Red Hat System Administration III (RH254). This course includes a few instructor lectures designed to review key technologies such as systemd, firewalld, and IPv6. For the classroom and virtual classroom versions of this course, an instructor will be available throughout the week to assist students as they work through the labs. This version of the course includes the Red Hat® Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) EX200 and Red Hat® Certified Engineer (RHCE) EX300 exam on the final day of class. 

This title is comprised of RH299 , EX200 , and EX300. If you are not looking for private group training, the updated schedule can be found on the RH299 course page. You may also call your training advisor for more information.
