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

Please note: deliveries of EX200V8 without containers will continue until October 5th, 2020.

What does this mean if I have an exam scheduled for after October 5th? Can I take this exam without containers?

  • On October 5th, 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.

Hi, I just enrolled for EX180 via RHLS and found when I tried to schedule it, that it is available only as Remote Exam at the moment. Is there any estimate when EX180 will be available as kiosk exam as well? I have a test center nearby and would prefer that option. Thanks!
