Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA)

A Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification is earned when an IT professional demonstrates the core system administration skills common to Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments. RHCSA is an appropriate certification for system administrators and professionals in a wide variety of related roles, including database administrators, developers, and support technicians. The new RHCSA credential aligns with the critical skills required of today's system administrators. As with all of Red Hat certification exams, the RHCSA exam continues the practice of evaluating knowledge and skills through hands-on, lab-based exam.To ensure this certification meets the needs of IT managers seeking qualified system administrators, Red Hat conducted an extensive survey and analysis of Red Hat certification holders worldwide. This survey sought to identify the most frequent and critical tasks that today's system administrators perform on the job. This survey helped shape the RHCSA credential, in addition to validating the more senior-level responsibilities that are tested by the RHCE exam. In addition to the survey, Red Hat has continually sought input on the certification program from its certified community through annual RHCE focus group sessions at Red Hat Summit, online focus groups with Red Hat Certified Architects (RHCAs), and informal discussions at RHCE Loopback events. This input has been central to changes made to the overall program in conjunction with the launch of RHCSA.

Linux trainings was provided by the College itself, So I decided to go for RHCE @ MIT....This was one of my best decisions I took in my life for my future Life in IT while doing my B.Tech. I took admission to MIT RedHat Academy and tried very hard for that RHCE. For being a RHCE, I was learning and practicing the Configurations in text based User Interfaces which are mostly recommended for servers for 14 to 16 hours a day. The college gave me permissions for attending the RedHat Sessions, Department was much happy to help for this kind of activities. Knowledge Centre was Open 24*7 for such candidates who wanted to work and practice as well.
