The two new service offerings include an IT engineer-level OpenStack certification, Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) in Red Hat OpenStack, and accompanying exam, Red Hat Certified Engineer in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX310) as well as an IT engineer-level course, Red Hat OpenStack Administration III (CL310).
The RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack certification requires passing the hands-on, performance-based EX310 exam and the RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX210); and a demonstration of an IT professional’s ability to integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with OpenStack key services and utilise OpenStack Neutron networking’s advanced features.
The programme is available around the world in a classroom setting or via Individual Exam Sessions.
Red Hat OpenStack Administration III (CL310) is a follow-on course to the Red Hat OpenStack Administration (CL210), which covers content for both OpenStack Administration I and II. CL310 is a four-day, lab intensive course.
The new OpenStack Administration III course will be offered in traditional classroom, virtual classroom, and self-paced training via Red Hat Online Learning. Additionally, this new course is being offered through Red Hat’s recently launched Red Hat Learning Subscription. According to the company, the learning subscription is designed to help customers accelerate the speed and ease of on-boarding new staff, the adoption of new OpenStack releases, and cross-training across multiple products in an on-demand setting.
In addition to the engineer-level offerings, Red Hat also introduced a Red Hat OpenStack Technical Overview (CL010) course. This free, 2-hour, online and on-demand course features a series of short videos to help customers better understand the technical basics of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Randy Russell, director, Certification, Red Hat, said, “During the past 16 years, the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) credential has set a global standard for engineer-level certifications on Linux, by providing a rigorous, performance-based exam that accurately represents an IT professional’s abilities. This new Red Hat Training and Certification offering aims to do the same for OpenStack at a time when demand for highly skilled OpenStack developers, engineers, and system administrators has soared.”
