I am pleased to announce that the new Preliminary Exam in Red Hat System Administration I (PE124) is now available for delivery. This exam is the second in our line of take-at-home exams that allow candidates to take the exam at both a time and a location that is convenient for them. All that is required is a suitable device and reliable broadband Internet access.
The key feature of Preliminary Exams that enables them to be delivered anywhere is that the exam infrastructure is completely hosted in the cloud. The Preliminary Exam in Red Hat System Administration I is hosted on the new Red Hat Training and Certification Cloud infrastructure that itself is built on Red Hat OpenStack Platform and IBM Cloud.
The exam covers basic, essential Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administration skills including:
Understanding essential command line concepts
Using basic tools and commands
Creating, deleting and managing files
Managing file permissions
Operating running systems
Managing log files

The exam is available for both Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
