RHCT Strange Question


I was asked by my boss to be the instructor of the RHCT course (131) although I'm not an RHCT or RHCE. Do I have to be a RHCE or RHCT to be the instructor of this course or any Red Hat course if I'm a Red Hat Certified Training Partner? Thanks for your time.

PS. Could you please provide the link to any information related to this issue. I've searched Red Hat's site and didn't find anything regarding this issue.

You don't have to be a Red Hat Certified Engineer/Technician to train someone in the course, but I can't see what you would be able to bring to the course that a book wouldn't. The great thing about someone who has already taken the courses and sat the exam is that they would be able to tell the trainees about it - explain how the exams are worded, pass on useful tips, etc.

Thanks a lot for your reply. However, I'm a little puzzled by your reply because I read that for the Red Hat Training Academy (http://www.redhat.com/training/academy/faq.html) , under question 11 "What are the certification requirements of our teachers?", it states that "Every instructor you select to teach this curriculum must be RHCT certified prior to the beginning of the class." 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.

Your employer is asking you to be the official trainer? In that case, definitely get yourself certified first. For MS courses, to be an accredited trainer, you need to be an official trainer - this normally means at leat an MCSE + the MS Certified Trainer course/exam.

Your best bet is to contact a training organisation (like Azlan in the UK) and find out what you should be.

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?

RHCT is a step towards RHCE. RHCE is the demanding certificate, not RHCT. If you donot have deep knowledge of RHCE sysllabus and its content, how would you teach!? Self education is not enough here, as u are unknown with the exam environment.
