Red Hat Architecture

After completing the Red Hat Architect path you’ll have the core hands-on knowledge and skills needed to be a Red Hat architect. You’ll start by learning the basics of how Linux works, what its foundational tools are and how they fit together. These first levels of applied learning around best practices for Linux OS’s, file management, databases and user management culminate in you sitting your first Linux certification exam(s). You’ll move onto advanced specialised knowledge in virtualisation, DevOps and enterprise systems management as you move through the Red Hat certification path. To crown it off, you’ll acquire the specialised Linux security skills that every top-level architect needs.These paths are flexible. Whether you're new to Red Hat Architecture or looking to take your skills to the next level, you can skip what you know and start at the appropriate lesson. And like all ACG learning, these RHCA paths have a major focus on practical learning using hands-on labs.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
