Requirements for EX288

Hi everyone,

I finished DO288 and would like to take the exam EX288 soon. During DO288, I would often have to interact with Git and Quay and would have to write post commands among other things.

I suppose knowledge about podman and skopeo commands is mandatory, but do I need to memorize how to interact with GitLab or Quay and even memorize how to write post commands in the console for the exam? Also, do I need to have a GitLab and a Quay account with valid tokens?



EDIT: I forgot that I also wanted to ask: How do remote exams work? Will I need a webcam and microphone for this? And is it okay to have learning material nearby to look things up?

Have a look at the EX288 exam objectives , and review the RH288 training course mapping the things listed there as to what has been presented.


As for the how's of the exam:

- No reference documentation is allowed. However, the exam environment is a fully funciontal environment with documentation, and some/most of the product documentation is made available inside the exam environment.

- The remote exam is delivered via a bootable ISO.  You need either a laptop computer with an extra webcam, or a regular desktop PC with the same webcam. Microphone is only used to listen to the environment where you are taking the exam from; any interaction with the proctor is done with the embedded chat. It's important to verify your computer compatibility before enrolling into the exam (or re-schedule your exam at least 24h in advance if you find any compatibility issues in your environment). A list of prerequisites is re-confirmed via email once you schedule an exam.

- Alternatively, you can schedule your exam in a testing location where they have already taken care of this set up for you (if it makes it more convenient)

Exam Environment will have everything setup for you , still its a good thing to have your own git and quay account (you will have to create , configure and use one during hands on labs for RH 288) . Hope this helps as rest of the answer has been nicely explaied by Fran_Garcia ( in first response above to your query.  Cheers ! 


That clears things up for me. Thank you very much
