The Value of Red Hat Training

Red Hat Training's hands-on, task-focused courses help IT professionals and developers build the skills they need to implement real-world changes—better and faster. We've helped nearly two-million students worldwide get the most out of their Red Hat technology deployments. Learn directly from the source and get the most relevant, current, and comprehensive education available anywhere.

Next, prove your or your staff's true capabilities through our Red Hat certification program. All Red Hat certification exams are performance based: candidates for certificaiton must show they can perform tasks similar to those you would find in real-world scenarios.

We offer students and organizations a variety of ways to train, including traditional classroom-based instruction, instructor-led virtual classrooms, self-paced online learning, and private team training.

"Customers recognize the quality of certifications. Whether they're concerned about how we'll handle potentially challenging scenarios, or whether we'll configure their systems properly, they relax when they hear they'll be working with Red Hat certified support professionals.

"The JBoss Training class was delivered using comprehensive use-case scenarios and featured hands-on labs, which provided the skills and knowledge necessary to handle our organization's JBoss workloads. After completing the JBoss Training class, I felt prepared and equipped to maximize our use of JBoss solutions and better understand, maintain, and troubleshoot our middleware environment."

With more than 30 courses, we deliver training on almost all Red Hat products. Our courses are all lab-based and hands-on, meaning students spend the majority of their class time practicing the same important tasks they'll perform back at their job. Students learn from certified instructors who only teach on topics on which they themselves are experts.

Red Hat Certifications: Prove Your Skills, Not Just Your Knowledge

Red Hat's performance-based certifications are among the most highly regarded in the IT industry. A Red Hat certification means you've proven your skills by conducting performance-based testing of the tasks you need to perform your job. Red Hat certifications prove that you've mastered key tasks for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and more. Organizations hiring employees, contractors, and consultants can look to Red Hat certifications as input while making hiring, assignment, promotion, and other management decisions. Similarly, individuals who earn these certifications benefit by having official, impartial validation of their skills and knowledge.
