The popular open source cloud platform OpenStack has received a training and certification path thanks to Red Hat. Earlier this week, Red Hat wrote on its blog, describing the advantages for those who elect to participate in the OpenStack certification training courses.
“This new Red Hat Training and Certification offering aims to do the same for OpenStack at a time when demand for highly skilled OpenStack developers, engineers, and system administrators has soared,” says Randy Russell, director of certifications at Red Hat.
Red Hat has a history of providing rich and robust training programs for IT professionals looking to sharpen their skillsets. As a result, there are thousands of Red Hat certified administrators in existence in over 40 countries worldwide. With the introduction of the OpenStack certification path on Red Hat, you can expect to see that number grow tremendously.
Within the certification path for OpenStack, Red Hat mentions that they have introduced new tests and classes such as:

  • EX210 – Red Hat OpenStack Exam
  • EX310 – Red Hat Certified Engineer in OpenStack Exam
  • CL310 – Red Hat OpenStack Administration III

Red Hat says that its new examination process can be available in a classroom. Some of the testing procedures involves a hands on lab, which will help you ensure that you are able to navigate the ever evolving Red Hat OpenStack infrastructure. The Red Hat website says that CL310 is a 4 day, intensive lab session that gives administrators expert knowledge in the Red Hat OpenStack ecosystem.
“As our customers move through the product lifecycle from proof of concept to production they need a rigorous, hands-on, globally available curriculum to enable their OpenStack administrators to be successful,” mentions Red Hat’s Randy Russell.
“The new Red Hat OpenStack Administration III course extends proofs of concept by teaching administrators how to integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with the key services of OpenStack and provide students with a more advanced understanding of Neutron networking,”  Russell added.
