Today Red Hat announced a new pathway to become a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE).
I recommend reading through the RHCE blog post and updated RHCE FAQ, but what other questions do you have about the enhanced RHCE path? We have Red Hat Certification team experts in the community, ready to answer all of your questions and offer guidance regarding RHCE.
The Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation Exam (EX407) will continute to be offered until May 2020 to allow a path for those who earned Red Hat Certified Engineer under Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 to demonstrate Ansbile expertise without having to retake the RHCE exam.
You will not be required to become a RHCSA on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 to become an RHCE.

I'm not clear on the timeline for when RHCE moves to RHEL 8 and automation. If there is an RHCE exam in my country slated for March 2020, what am I to prepare for (7 or 8)?
