Red Hat encourages all candidates for Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Messaging Administration (EX440) to consider taking Red Hat JBoss AMQ Administration (JB440) courses to help prepare. Attendance in this class is not required, so one can choose to take just the exam.

While attending Red Hat classes can be an important part of one's preparation to take exams, attending classes does not guarantee success on the exam. Previous experience, practice, and native aptitude are also important determinants of success.


Exam format

This exam is a performance-based evaluation of the candidate's AMQ management skills and knowledge. Candidates perform tasks associated with the configuration and management of enterprise messaging systems using Red Hat JBoss AMQ. Performance-based testing means that candidates must perform tasks similar to what they perform on the job.

This is a closed exam where candidates do not have access to the internet and candidates are not permitted to bring any papers, books, or electronic aids to the exam. Candidates are, however, provided with a local copy of the official Red Hat JBoss AMQ documentation. Candidates should familiarize themselves with this documentation when preparing for the exam.


Scores and reporting

Official scores for exams come exclusively from Red Hat Certification Central. Red Hat does not authorize examiners or training partners to report results to candidates directly. Scores on the exam are usually reported within 3 U.S. business days.

Exam results are reported as section scores. Red Hat does not report performance on individual items, nor will it provide additional information upon request.
