If you’re following along at home with the 2012 Red Hat Study Buddy Group, there’s a handful of folks (myself included) who have decided to nab some Red Hat certifications before the year ends. Perhaps that will lead to better things in the year 2013, but it certainly can’t lead to worse things (famous last words?).
I’ve compiled a short list of some of the more pertinent official sources of information for this endeavor. I’ll be referencing them and this post as I crunch through my RHCSA study plan.
- RedHat Product Documentation
- RHEL Specific Product Documentation
- RedHat Enterprise Linux Server Product Page
- RedHat Certifications Page
- Red Hat Courses
- Even if you don’t plan on taking an official Red Hat course, give serious attention to each course’s syllabus to get a very good idea of what you need to know to become Red Hat Certified.
- List of all Red Hat courses.
- Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) Course Outline
- Red Hat System Administration II (RH135) Course Outline
- RHCSA Rapid Track (RH200) Course Outline (Apparently this course is very close to the actual RHCSA exam’s body of tasks. Keep a close eye on this one to see what will most likely be required of you in the exam room.)
- Red Hat System Administration III (RH255) Course Outline
- RHCE Rapid Track Course with RHCSA and RHCE Exams (RH300) Course Outline
- Red Hat Certificates of Expertise courses are not listed since so far no one has expressed interest in going out for one of them. They are all listed at the above link “List of all Red Hat courses.”
- RedHat Certificates of Expertise
- I’ll leave the finding of specific information pages for each certificate of expertise as an exercise for the reader. So far no one has claimed the CoE as a goal, with all interested being RHCSA or RHCE.
- RedHat Hardware Compatibility List. Just because.
Know of any other official information sources? Post them in the comments below and I’ll add them to the body of the post. I’m also creating a list of unofficial, RedHat / CentOS information sources and communities. Any suggestions for that topic would also be appreciated.
