Course Overview

The Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) in Red Hat OpenStack exam (EX310) tests your ability to configure advanced networking in a director-based Red Hat® OpenStack environment.

By passing this exam, you become a Red Hat Certified Specialist, which also counts toward becoming a Red Hat® Certified Architect (RHCA®).

This exam is based on Red Hat OpenStack version 10.

Who should attend

These audiences may be interested in becoming an RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack:

  • Experienced OpenStack system administrators responsible for the planning or deployment of Red Hat OpenStack
  • Experienced OpenStack system administrators who want to demonstrate their capability in network functions virtualization (NFV)
  • An RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack interested in earning an RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack credential
  • An RHCE interested in earning a Red Hat Certified Specialist or RHCSA credential

Prerequisites

Red Hat recommends that you earn both RHCSA and RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack credentials before attempting this exam, but it is not required. Note that to earn the RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack credential, you must be an RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack and also pass the RHCE in Red Hat OpenStack exam. While it is possible to take these exams out of sequence, Red Hat strongly recommends earning the RHCSA in Red Hat OpenStack credential first.

Red Hat encourages all candidates for the Red Hat Certified Engineer in Red Hat OpenStack exam to consider taking Red Hat OpenStack Administration I: Core Operations for Cloud Administrators (CL110), Red Hat OpenStack Administration II: Infrastructure Configuration for Cloud Administrators (CL210), and Red Hat OpenStack Administration III: Networking & Foundations of NFV (CL310) to help prepare. Attendance in these classes is not required; students can choose to take just the exam.

Many books and other resources on system administration for Red Hat's products are available. Red Hat does not officially endorse any as preparation guides for its exam. Nevertheless, you may find additional reading deepens understanding and can prove helpful.
