So I was assuming the same would be true for instructors in the RHCT program.
PS. I'm trying to find this to convince my employeer that I should be certified before giving the exam. I know that getting certified would definitely add value to the course, but unless it's a prerequisite, I don't think he'll finance me.
I agree. I don't believe that the RHCT program is treated differently than the RHCE program.
You can tell your boss that he will most likely lose the status
as a Red Hat Training center if Red Hat where to find out. I'm not sure of this this but that would definitely happen if Microsoft or Novell found out that a training partner was delivering official courses with non accredited trainers regardless of the students.
What Microsoft and Novell requires
Microsoft has no specific course for trainers, nor any special exam. You are simply required to hold a valid current MCSE or MCSD and Comptia CTT+ (Although Microsoft does make exceptions for experienced trainers with a letter of recommendation from a Microsoft training partner).
Novell has an option of being a Comptia CTT+ or passing the Novell IPE (Instructor Performance Evaluation). Of course you also have to be holding a current CNE. Also you have to pass each exam (of every course that you are to teach) at a higher score, the so called CNI-level, requiring you to have better understanding of the subject.
My guess is that your boss will have to find a different trainer or he will have
to get you accredited.
Also I have a hard time believing that you can obtain RHCT without first obtaining RHCE.
Is there a certification hotline at Red Hat that you can call and ask?
