Red Hat Academy Training Courses and Certification Exams

The College of Engineering and Computing Sciences’ partnership with Red Hat allows students to gain practical experience and access to free training in Linux, cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies. Linux, an open source operating system, serves as the basis for many prominent IT initiatives, including containers, cloud-native applications, and security.

How You’ll Benefit from This Free Training

The Red Hat System Administration 1 and System Administration 2 courses will train you to become a full-time enterprise Linux system administrator. If you are a Computer Science or Information Technology undergraduate student, upon successful completion of both courses, you will be eligible to:

  • earn six credits toward your degree completion requirements, a cost savings of several thousand dollars.
  • take the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification exam at a discounted rate.
  • join the Red Hat ambassador program, promoting Red Hat courses, receiving instructor materials, and accessing potential job opportunities with Red Hat partners.
