The RHCE Fast Track Course (RH299) is designed for senior Linux system administrators who want to validate their competencies by earning the RHCSA and RHCE credentials.

This is a fast-paced preparation course that combines the RHCSA Fast Track Course (RH199) and System Administration III (RH254) courses, normally eight days of training, into a single four-day course.

Building on the students' extensive knowledge of command line based Linux administration, the course moves very quickly through the intermediate and advanced tasks covered by lab-based knowledge checks and facilitative discussions. By the end of this course, the senior Linux administrator students will have been exposed to all the intermediate and advanced competencies tested by the RHCSA and RHCE exams.


• Experienced Linux system administrators with a minimum of three years of Linux experience who want a fast-track solution to earn an RHCE certification.
• Experienced Solaris system administrators who have completed the Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Solaris Administrators (RH290) course.
• This course is not recommended for students who have successfully completed the RHCSA Rapid Track Course (RH200). For those students, the Red Hat System Administration III (RH254) course is recommended.
