The RHCE Rapid Track Course (RH299) is designed for senior Linux system administrators who want to validate their competencies by earning the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) and Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) credentials. This is a fast-paced review course that combines the RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH199) and System Administration III (RH254) courses-normally 8 days of training-into a single 4-day course. Building on the students' extensive knowledge of command-line-based Linux administration, the course moves very quickly through the intermediate and advanced tasks covered by lab-based knowledge checks and facilitative discussions.
By the end of this course, the senior Linux administrator student will have been exposed to all the intermediate and advanced competencies tested by the RHCSA and RHCE exams. Exams sold separately.
To qualify for this course, students must:
Meet the requirements for attending Red Hat System Administration I, II, and III courses.
Have the same skill set as an RHCT/RHCSA.
This course is recommended for:
An experienced Linux system administrator with at least 3 years of Linux experience who wants a fast-track solution to earn an RHCE certification.
An experienced Solaris system administrator who's completed the Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Solaris Administrators (RH290) course.
This course is not recommended for students who have successfully completed the RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH200). For those students, we recommend the Red Hat System Administration III (RH254) course.

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
