RHCE – It is Red Hat Certified Engineer which trains your skills such as system administration and configuring a server. To do this certification you should earn Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certificate. It is the second level in the Red Hat certification program. This certification teaches you about the configuration of a server. If you are interested to enter the IT sector without programming skills, RHCE certification is one of the best ways. Several centers train the RHCE course in India, but make sure that you have joined an authorized center. You can check those details on the Red Hat official website.

The RHCE exam is not a theoretical examination. This examination will be similar to your practice exams. A score of 210 out of 300 will be considered as pass. There will be 20 questions and the exam evaluation is completely different. You would be in trouble even if you would be leaving even a single question unanswered. Everyone student will have different opinions on this exam. RHCE exam will be easier than the RHCSA exam but many students fail this exam for silly reasons.
RHCE certification validity is believed to be about 3 years or valid till the next Red Hat version release, Suppose Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 has released then you need to redo the certification. So, once you earn an RHCE certificate you should enter a job in this domain and gain experience.
