Obtaining a specific RHCA title

Jump to solution

I'm currently a short step away of my RHCA with the following certifications already earned:

  • Configuration Management
  • OpenShift Administration
  • Ansible Automation
  • Administrator in OpenStack
  • RHCE
  • RHCSA

Based on the information provided by the offical RHCA website, there are two distinct titles that you can earn. First there is the RHCA in infrastructure tailored specific for RHCEs and another one for RHCEMDs. However I would like to take for my last one the Red Hat Certified Specalist in Containerized Application Development which was released recently.

If I successfully complete this last certification, does I get the RHCA status? Imagine that I would take in the future another certification from the infrastructure track, would the nameless RHCA been updated to a RHCA in infrastructure?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best

Valentin

Hi @supercoast,

I'd say that the page you mention is erroneous.

I passed EX288 earlier this year and it made my RHCA in Infrastructure level increase by 1.

Or, check out that credential ID of someone who's got just 5 current CoEs including EX288 and who actually is an RHCA in Infrastructure.

The best way to get answers about certification requirements and your own status as an RCP is using the certification feedback form at https://www.redhat.com/rhtapps/services/comments/

Not all specialist certifications are accounted towards your RHCA because they depend on the initial certification: Either RHCE or RHCEMD (or RHJCD for those who already got it). A few certifications, such as JBoss EAP administration and OpenShift administration (these are examples, please don't take my workd as authoritative) counts for both RHCAs, but most doesn't. 

You could even get both RHCA tracks and call yourself "Doube RHCA" or "RHCA^2". ;-)

Hi @supercoast,

Your RHCE and 4 current CoEs are in the RHCA in the Infrastructure path.

"Red Hat Certified Specalist in Containerized Application Development" used to be EX276 and has been retired. I don't think you can still take that exam. I wanted to earlier this year but my Red Hat sales representative told me that it was not possible anymore, not even as an Individual Exam.

It's been replaced by "Red Hat Certified Specialist in OpenShift Application Development Exam" (EX288).

Both EX276 and EX288 count toward becoming an RHCA in Infrastructure, so your upcoming RHCA is definitely going to be an RHCA in Infrastructure.

Good luck!

Hi littlebigfab

Thanks for your answer.

Unfortunately I don‘t think that I‘ll get my RHCA in Infrastructure after passing the new EX288. If you visit the official RHCA website and navigate to the Exams section you‘ll notice two lists. The fist one shows the exams which count towards the RHCA in Infrastructure. If you search for the ex288 you‘ll not find it. However in the one for the RHCA in Enterprise Application Development you‘ll find the exam.
