Open source experts Red Hat has announced two new service offerings from Red Hat Training and Certification focusing on improving IT professionals’ skills and expertise in Red Hat-distributed OpenStack clouds.
The two new service offerings include an IT engineer-level OpenStack certification, Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) in Red Hat OpenStack, and accompanying exam, Red Hat Certified Engineer in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX310) as well as an IT engineer-level course, Red Hat OpenStack Administration III (CL310).
Red Hat OpenStack Administration III (CL310) is a follow-on course to the Red Hat OpenStack Administration (CL210), which covers content for both OpenStack Administration I and II and features a four-day, lab intensive course.
The new OpenStack Administration III course will be offered in traditional classroom, virtual classroom, and self-paced training via Red Hat Online Learning. Additionally, this new course is being offered through Red Hat’s recently launched Red Hat Learning Subscription, an annual subscription based offering that gives candidates unlimited access to Red Hat’s full portfolio of training content including a wide variety of OpenStack skills training.
In addition to the engineer-level offerings, Red Hat also introduced a Red Hat OpenStack Technical Overview (CL010) a free, 2-hour, online and on-demand course features a series of short videos to help viewers understand the technical basics of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. It also can be used as a preparatory course for CL210.
Commenting on the new courses and certifications Red Hat’s director of Curriculum, Pete Hnath, said: “As our customers move through the product lifecycle from proof of concept to production they need a rigorous, hands-on, globally available curriculum to enable their OpenStack administrators to be successful. The new Red Hat OpenStack Administration III course extends proofs of concept by teaching administrators how to integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with the key services of OpenStack and provide students with a more advanced understanding of Neutron networking.”
