Road to RHCA: Completed

It has been a lot of hard work, but totally worth it. It took me 6 months with some breaks in between.

I used RHLS as my main study resource with 180 hours of lab time utilised. Exams taken:

Clustering (EX436)
Puppet (EX405)
Ansible (EX407)
Satellite (EX403)
Security (EX415)

I found Puppet to be the hardest exam of them all. Ansible was a new thing to me, but all other topics are more or less what I do at work.

[EDIT: May 2020]

I've also passed OpenShift (EX280) and Hybrid Cloud (EX220).

Technically the criteria for RHCA elligibility is to have RHCE + 5 contributing certifications active at any point in time; now note that many of the certification content assumes you have an RHCE-level knowledge. While nothing prevents taking the 'advanced' certifications first, it might make more sense to take RHCSA+RHCE first, the others later.

Also, any passed certification contributing to RHCA will extend your RHCE expiration date, so that maybe easies your path :-)
