Do I need RHCSA to take RHCE

Hello,

 

I am confused. I know that rhcse exam was mandatory for taking rhce exam but if you look at:

https://www.redhat.com/en/services/certification/rhce-faq

 

How will the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification and exam be affected?

There will be incremental changes to the RHCSA curriculum as part of the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, but these adjustments will be distinct from and less impactful than the RHCE changes. To successfully pass the new RHCE exam, you will not be required to become a RHCSA on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. However, we do recommend you take the new curriculum to properly prepare for the new RHCE exam (EX294) that is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 concepts.

 

 

Best regards

You can take the RHCE before the RHCSA, but you will not earn the RHCE until you take and pass the RHCSA.

What you posted was referring to is this: Having an active RHSCA (at the time, v7) was sufficient to take and earn the RHCE (v8).

Same thing is happening now. If you have an RHCSA (v8), you do not need to earn an RHCSA (v9) before taking and earning the RHCE (v9).

That is my understanding. However, there may be a time limit (something less than three years). I do not know. I'd check on that.

Hi @leon189 ,
I hope you're fine. 

To have the badge of RHCE is mandatory to have a current RHCSA. 

You will not receive the badge until passing the RHCSA if you passed the RHCE first. 

 

Regards, 
Fabio

Hi All,

My RHCE-7,8 and RHCSA-7 expired by July 2022. Currently, I am pursuing RHCE-9 (RH294). Is it mandated to take RHCSA-9 to go for RHCE9?

Please advice

Hello @Abhinanth8 !

You can take RHCE without RHCSA - but you wont be able to download the RHCE certificate unless you have a valid RHCSA.

Will I be able to know whether I have passed the RHCE9  or not once I attempt the exam.
