The RHCE Fast Track Course (RH299) is designed for senior Linux system administrators who want to validate their competencies by earning the RHCSA and RHCE credentials. This is a fast-paced preparation course that combines the RHCSA Fast Track Course (RH199) and System Administration III (RH254) courses, normally eight days of training, into a single four-day course. Building on the students’ extensive knowledge of command line based Linux administration, the course moves very quickly through the intermediate and advanced tasks covered by lab-based knowledge checks and facilitative discussions. By the end of this course, the senior Linux administrator students will have been exposed to all the intermediate and advanced competencies tested by the RHCSA and RHCE exams.
