Red Hat RHCSA Rapid Track Course with Exam (RH200)

If you already have significant experience with Linux® administration, this course may be for you. It combines Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and Red Hat System Administration II (RH134) into a single Red Hat® Certified System Administrator (RHCSA®) training track and includes the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam (EX200), allowing you to review and validate the tasks at an accelerated pace.

This course will empower you to use network automation to centrally manage the switches, routers, and other devices in your organization's network infrastructure. You will discover how to use Red Hat Ansible Automation for Networking to remotely automate configuration of network devices, test and validate the current network state, and perform compliance checks to detect and correct configuration drift. It further lends context to this foundational knowledge by going deeper into core Linux® system administration skills, including storage configuration, security feature management, task control, and installation and deployment of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux.

This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
