Red Hat today announced an updated Red Hat Training and Certification exam retake policy that offers candidates an opportunity to retake individual and preliminary exams at no additional cost, helping organizations fill skill gaps from Red Hat’s growing community of qualified certified professionals.
New certification candidates or those who have purchased individual or preliminary exams and have not taken them yet are eligible for a retake of the exam at no additional cost if they are unsuccessful in their first attempt. According to the company, Red Hat Learning Subscription (RHLS) standard, premium and developer subscribers will now receive conditional retakes for each of the exams provided by their respective subscriptions.
Red Hat certifications span the entire Red Hat open hybrid cloud portfolio, equipping certified professionals with skills ranging from enterprise architecture certifications, core Linux system administration, automation, containers and cloud skills, to developer knowledge of specialized frameworks. Certification exams include comprehensive hands-on exams lasting three to four hours. Candidates are required to perform real-world tasks in a timed, monitored setting using one or more Red Hat technologies to show they possess the skills and knowledge needed to innovate with Red Hat products.
Certification candidates who purchase individual or preliminary exams after February 6, 2023, or purchased before February 6, 2023, and have not taken the purchased exam yet are eligible to retake the exam. The certification exam retake policy will only apply to individuals taking exams at testing centers and remote exams. Individuals taking classroom exams, whether open enrollment or onsite, are not entitled to free retakes under this global program.
