Expiry date for Red Hat Certified Architect in Enterprise Applications

Jump to solution

Hi,

yesterday I took my 7th certification this year that is part of the bundle Red Hat Certified Architect in Enterprise Applications. I'd expect that the expiration date would be set in 2026 (as all exams have been completed this year). However it will expiry on July 2024.

My certificationId https://rhtapps.redhat.com/verify?certId=140-136-177

is it accurate that the RHCA requires EX183+EX283 or EX378, followed by 5 more exams?

Also, what happens when RHCA lev 2 expires? will it be downgraded to lev 1 ? or simply I will lose that credential?

Thanks

Ok @fmarchioni ! Do you think it has to do something with the below information :

The criteria for RHCA status (whatever "flavour") is to have 5 valid, active certifications. The validity time is derived from when the *first* of those certifications will expire and will leave you with less than 5 active certs.

Does that match what you see in yor exam transcript?

In any case, if you get further certifications, it will be extended automatically with the new expiration dates.

@fmarchioni Thanks for reaching out !

Your RHCA is valid and active till you have 5 active specialist exams ( post valid RHCE ).

As per your certification transcript , these exams are going to expire in May -June 2024 :

With each exam expiry your current level of RHCA will expire and level 2 will expire by Jul 2024 :

Thanks Chetan for your reply. However with regards to EX248 and EX288 I just renewed them this year. I couldnt renew EX440 which has been retired:

Red Hat Certified Specialist in Enterprise Application Server Administration
Date:Jun 03, 2021
Current Until:Aug 09, 2026
Technologies Used:
  • Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0
Red Hat Certified OpenShift Application Developer
Date:May 03, 2021
Current Until:Sep 14, 2026
Technologies Used:
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.10
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.5

 

Overall, given that I have 7 active exams expiring in 2026 I wonder if the count is correct.
