Summary:
For individuals who wish to demonstrate the skills required to be a successful Linux administrator.

Initial Requirements:
You must pass the Red Hat Certified System Administrator exam ($400). Training is available but not required.

Recently Red Hat has begun making individual lab exam sessions available through remote kiosks instead of requiring a trip to a Red Hat classroom. A list of kiosk locations can be found on Red Hat's website.

Continuing Requirements:
Starting with RHEL 6, a certification is considered current for 3 years. If a higher-level exam is passed within the 3-year period, the currency period starts over.

Certifications tied to earlier versions of RHEL are subject to the recertification policy in force when they were earned.
