Certification and Examination Requirements

You must have an active RHCSA certification to receive a RHCE certification, but the RHCSA exam and the RHCE exam may be taken in any order.

The latest version of the RHCSA and RHCE certification and exams is 8. Should you wish to take version 7 or 6 exams then please check that it is still available by visiting

There is no certification requirement for candidates to attend a training course in order to receive certified status, however attending suitable courses will help considerably in preparing to take these examinations.

Following attendance on the relevant courses, delegates will need to dedicate time for self study and researching the topics covered on the course. They will also need to gain hands-on experience so they can put into practice what they have learnt on the courses.

Attending courses alone will not guarantee exam success, previous experience, practice, self study and aptitude are also key requirements.

Before taking any exam, delegates should ensure they have the recommended experience by checking the vendor website for current exam requirements and pre-assessment questionnaires.

N.B. Exams are not included as part of StayAhead Training courses.
