The Red Hat courses are high quality and the trainers know their stuff. I would suggest to test your present knowledge to find out what courses are suiteable for you. Then I would recommend to learn basic stuff via books and self study.
The advanced courses to prepare for the exam you should book at Red Hat directly.

You may also take the course with self study only but you will need lots of Linux experience for this to pass. As experience is the key to everything this way may not be the most effective but you will certainly learn the most.

I think that you will find that the rabbit hole is pretty deep and taking a class will not get you past the RHCE test. I would suggest troubleshooting some real world issues so that you learn the system more intimately. There are some self evaluation tests at that will let you know if you are ready for certain certification tracks. I have been in Linux for about 8 years now and I am just now getting ready to take my RHCE in March.
