RED HAT ENTERPRISE VIRTUALIZTION CERTIFICATION To compliment the RH318 course, Red Hat offers a certification designed for system administrators­- the Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA). Professionals earning the RHCVA credential have the demonstrated skills and abilities to successfully manage large numbers of servers or virtual machines using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.

The RHCVA is the only performance-based certification in its category, continuing the Red Hat tradition of benchmarking the skills of IT professionals through hands-on skills assessments. To earn the RHCVA credential, students participate in a hands-on, half-day exam (EX318).
