Red Hat Certification Exams

     Among the most highly regarded in IT, Red Hat certifications are earned by passing rigorous practical exams in which candidates must actually perform the real-world tasks required in production environments.

Performance-based exams:
     These performance-based exams provide assurance to customers and employers who rely on these certified IT professionals to administer, manage, and secure their infrastructures.

With performance-based exams, either candidates know the answers or they don’t. There is no opportunity to guess as there is with multiple choice questions.

Exam retake insurance:
        The unintended result of this rigorous testing method is that many candidates do not pass Red Hat certification exams the first time they take them. In fact, for some of Red Hat’s exams, the pass rate is less than 60% for first-time test takers. This can pose a problem for candidates, as they must invest from their personal funds or go back to their management and request additional funding for additional attempts.

       This is why Red Hat is pleased to offer Red Hat Certification exam offers. This offering acts as insurance, providing a retake of the exam(s) if unsuccessful on the first attempt.
