Course Description

Course Overview

The RHCSA Rapid Track course (RH199) is an intensive and fast-paced training program designed to prepare students for the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) certification exam. This course combines content from both Red Hat System Administration I (RH124) and Red Hat System Administration II (RH134) into a single accelerated course. The RHCSA certification is a globally recognized certification that validates the skills and knowledge required to perform essential system administration tasks on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.


  • Basic familiarity with operating systems and computing concepts.
  • Some experience with Linux or UNIX operating systems is beneficial, but not mandatory.
  • No prior experience with Red Hat Linux is required.


The RHCSA Rapid Track course follows an intensive, immersive learning approach, combining theoretical lectures, practical demonstrations, and hands-on lab exercises. Instructors will deliver the content from both RH124 and RH134 in a condensed timeframe, focusing on the most critical concepts for the RHCSA certification exam. The majority of the course will be devoted to hands-on lab exercises, allowing students to apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios and gain practical experience.
