Can I still comment if I have not taken any courses from Red Hat?... but would like to think I have still done so successfully! 8D
I fortunately had many years of experience, and with mass-market paperback study guides, I passed the EX200K/RHCSA, EX300K/RHCE, and to renew them just a week ago the EX413K/RHCSS exam.
My current employer is a small business that would not be able to spring a full course fee nor the full price learning subscription at this time, but I am hoping to find another 4 CoE topics that are as generic or at least technologies that I have sufficient exposure/experience in to pass another 4 CoE exams directly (my employer will reimburse successful exams), to be able to reach the RHCA in another year or so, and then maybe persuade them with the 50% discount eligibility, to benefit from the more specific topics/technologies I have not had access or been exposed to, to maintain the RHCA from then on (5 every 3 years is almost 2 courses/exams a year so including both the course and 1st exam attempt it definitely pays for itself, especially more so at the discounted rate).
