Yep, it expires in 3 years time.

If you still have to do MCSE, you might want to wait until RHEL 7 is released (which might be upon us very soon now).

I understand that this thread is marked as >solved<, anyway I rather ask the question here than open a new one, with a almost same topic....
Browsing training & exam sections on redhat's site it is not clearly said that RHCSA and RHCE is available for folks that do not have 124 or 135 or any other redhat training.
Calling both a "prerequisite" is same as "mandatory". So since I was unsure, I requested information, via email directly from redhat:

Quote:
......I am having difficulty finding information on whatever it is >required< to have any RedHat training and/or other certifications in order to do the RHCSA exam.
The RHSCA prerequisites mention "... or equivalent...". Do I need any additional training or could I just schedule the exam at one of the authorized testing centers?....
I also mentioned I that I got over 10 years Linux and Unix experience.... and that I (finally) decided to attempt, and got LPIC-2.
and here is the response:
Quote:
.....
Thank you for contacting Red Hat Training. We appreciate your interest in our training services.

If you need further assistance please call us at 1-866-626-2994 Option 2

Thank You,

Red Hat Training
.....
The response is not answer to my question ( and if it is, than I will decide to study English rather then prepare for RHCSA )
Again, he/she ( I hope not an automated response, after 6 hrs ) is mentioning "prerequisites", which does not mean "optional" or "suggested", but simply is a "requirement".
I am still confused and I feel like sitting in front of a monitor hooked up to a Microsoft Windows (8) machine.
I really like druuna's 3rd post / answer, but the information on RH site just does not confirm it, or the wording is simply wrong.
On the other hand, I am sure that RH would rather have me going through all the training, but I do not see a smallest reason to spend $10K+ to just get a single, $400 certification I need or want...

Thanks everyone!

Mike

@paziulek: As a non native English speaker I'm not going into the nitty-gritty of the English (American?) language, but I am sure about the following:

- From personal experience (and seeing many colleague's do the same thing): You do not need any extra, paid for, training/certificate(s) to take the RHCSA exam. If, looking at the exam objectives, your knowledge is good enough then you can take the exam.

- You need to have a valid RHCSA certificate to get the RHCE certificate. But you do not need a valid RHCSA certificate to take the RHCE exam. Or phrased differently: You can take the RHCE exam and pass, but the actual certificate will not be awarded to you until you pass the RHCSA exam. This makes it possible to take the RHCSA and RHCE exam on the same day.


Is it wise to do some preparations before the exam(s)? Yes, especially when it comes to RHCE. How you prepare and which resources you use are completely up to you. I personally liked the RHCSA/RHCE study guide (see post #6 for the link). It gave me a rough idea what the exams would look like and pointed out which objectives needed some work.

Remember: These certificates are there to validate what you've learned as a system administrator over the years. Taking the RHCSA exam shouldn't be too hard (time constrains aside), just make sure you catch up on those objectives that are "rusty".

@druuna - Thank you for your response. English is not my first language - possibility of misunderstanding is quite high. Studying English would have a lot of advantages, but there is too many things that would be great to do, but life is unfortunately too short.
Perfect! I am really glad to hear the great news!
As you suggested, I will spend some time with objectives and study guides before an exam. Often feeling too comfortable is a bit foolish. Every day people are required to redo their driver's license after driving a car for 20 years - many fail the test.

Thank you again druuna, for the priceless information and good advices!

Mike
