The performance-based Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (EX294) tests your knowledge and skill in managing multiple systems using Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and executing common system administration tasks across a number of systems with Ansible. The skills tested in this exam are the foundation for system administration across many Red Hat products. For this course you must be at least RHCSA (Red Hat Certified Administrator) Certified.


This course will prepare you for the EX294 exam by Red Hat and will reward you RHCE (Red Hat Certified Engineer) title. The Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam is a hands-on, practical exam that requires you to undertake real-world tasks.
