RHEL + Containers FAQ

What changes are happening and when?

  • All of these changes are happening October 1st, 2020, and are ONLY impacting RHEL8 versions. RHEL 7 will remain the same:
  • RH134: being extended by 1 day to include container content
  • RH199: being extended by 1 day to include container content
  • EX200: being extended by .5 hours to include container content
  • EX180 (Red Hat Certified Specialist in Containers and Kubernetes Exam)- New exam, replacing PE180
  • PE180: no longer purchasable, being replaced with EX180
  • RH124: Updating to RHEL 8.2 to address jiras and bug fixes

What does this mean if I have an exam scheduled for after October 1st? Can I take this exam without containers?

  • On October 1st, EX200 RHEL 8 version will be updated to include containers, and this exam will no longer be available without containers

What will the delta content include and look like?

  • This content will be 4-5 hours of container content to help prepare for the changes coming to EX200. It will look like a regular course and it will include labs. 

Am I eligible for the free content, RHCSA650E?

  • Eligible students are:
    • Students who have purchased or taken RH134/RH199 between August 17th, 2019 and September 30th, 2020
    • Students who have purchased or scheduled EX200 between August 17th, 2019 and September 30th, 2020
      • This includes students who have scheduled exams after September 30th 2020 as long as they purchased the exam before September 30th 2020.

How do I access this free content?

  • Eligible students will be able to purchase this offering in the LMS for free. Please click on this article to view a tutorial on accessing this content. 

When will updated video classrooms be available?

  • We do not have a date at this time for updated VCs, but they are slated for updates after GA of October 1st.

I have questions about the content changes. Who can I ask?

Re: RHEL + Containers FAQ

Hi! I'm trying to schedule my remote RHCSA v8 exam for next week but there are no dates on the calendar before Oct. 1. Is this issue related to this update? is there any chance to take it before Oct. 1 ? Thank you!
