Hi,

Has anyone gone for the Red Hat Certifications listed here:

are they useful to have?

Thanks

If you fully grok how to administer any other Linux or *nix, I would not expect that you will learn all that much. But if you want to learn admin voodoo, and someone will pay for it. go.

If you are asking about the value of the Certificate for a job, then this post belongs in the jobs section of the forum.

The RHCE is one of the very few certificates that I consider to be worth the ink used to print them. But its an indication of competence for being able to set up, administrate and repair a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (and by implication, other Linuxes as well).

It doesn't indicate a thing about one's ability to design, develop or implement software on Linux, and as far as I know that even includes demonstrating the ability to create RPMs.

So when it comes to hiring, for the position of sysadmin, network administrator or other operations support personnel, an RHCE is a golden ticket in my book. But for developer's, it's just a sign that the developer thoroughly knows the platform. Which is a definite plus, but along with that knowledge I'd want to have other tokens that prove ability to function as a developer.
