New Red Hat OpenStack training and certification

Red Hat_LogoRed Hat announced two new service offerings from Red Hat Training and Certification focused on improving IT professionals’ skills and expertise in Red Hat-distributed OpenStack clouds.

The two new service offerings include an IT engineer-level OpenStack certification, Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) in Red Hat OpenStack, and accompanying exam, Red Hat Certified Engineer in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX310) as well as an IT engineer-level course, Red Hat OpenStack Administration III (CL310).

The new OpenStack Administration III course will be offered in traditional classroom, virtual classroom, and self-paced training via Red Hat Online Learning. Additionally, this new course is being offered through Red Hat’s recently launched Red Hat Learning Subscription, an annual subscription featuring unlimited access to Red Hat’s full portfolio of training content including a wide variety of OpenStack skills training. The learning subscription is designed to help customers accelerate the speed and ease of on-boarding new staff, the adoption of new OpenStack releases, and cross-training across multiple products in an on-demand setting.

In addition to the engineer-level offerings, Red Hat also introduced a Red Hat OpenStack Technical Overview (CL010) course. This free, 2-hour, online and on-demand course features a series of short videos to help customers better understand the technical basics of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. It also can be used as a preparatory course for CL210. The course is available for registration through Red Hat’s website.

Randy Russell, director certification at Red Hat said, “During the past 16 years, the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) credential has set a global standard for engineer-level certifications on Linux, by providing a rigorous, performance-based exam that accurately represents an IT professional’s abilities. This new Red Hat Training and Certification offering aims to do the same for OpenStack at a time when demand for highly skilled OpenStack developers, engineers, and system administrators has soared.”
