    @blueberries: that is a strong generalization and that's not what I meant to say. I was just trying to say that there are cases of training centers teaching students how to pass exams including the CCIE as well

    The same situation is in other Eastern European countries, this is a legacy from the "communist time". But I'm not going to accept this and work for the minimum wages - I'm going to get an RHCA and probably open a training facility or consulting company. I also have a friends in USA so there is another possibility - work for the US company as a contractor.

    I think the CCIE and RHCA are good if you are moving to the Infrastructure Architect or Design Roles. The value of these certificates will be accentuated and meaningful only if you have the experience.

    The repeated discussion of countries like India and China having factories making RHCA's and CCIE's is not entire true.

    They make CCIE's - True . RHCE's - True . RHCA's - False.

    If RHCA was true - We have only 40 or so in India and 90% of them them work for Redhat in a Training or Consulting Role. 26 of them are trainers with or associated with Redhat.

    Get experience go for the Architect exams.

    Some day you will get the Consultant Tag and thats the day you can truly gloat about having both !

    My 0.2$ though !

    I plan to do them too. I am three papers short for my RHCA. I intended to do the CCNA before September but SANS happened to me so that goes on the backburner for a while.

    I intend to finish the RHCA next year. CCIE in the next two.

    My Company does not pay me anything but 500$ per year as certification reimbursement.

    I get raises and role changes due to them though ! That makes it all the more worthwhile.

    I work as a Configuration Engineer - Design and Config Management in a Financial Institution for those who might want to validate my views !

    Cheers

    Exactly! Thank you! that's why I said CCIE & RHCE in my original post but never RHCA! I have seen dodgy RHCEs but never a suspicious RHCA!

    I was clarifying. This thread started out as RHCA. Ended as an argument about RHCE.

    Actually, quite the opposite. The thread started off as a CCIE/RHCE thread and ended as an argument about RHCA lol

    I can't see the point of having both. I have CISCO certs but having worked in an Enterprise level job for a while now, I almost never use my CISCO skills. In fact the only time I use CISCO CLI is at home.

    I know a few dudes with their CCIE. They told me it's extremely difficult and requires years of practical experience. Studying meant coming home from work and hiding in the basement until 10 PM when they went up to see their wife & family.

    I passed CCIE R&S a couple of months ago, so by the end of 2017 the number of CCIE R&S was about 58 000! I You are not a prophet, definitely)

    In terms of topic, I'm personally going to pass RHCE! I'm sure it has a value in today's mixed IT world.

    Thinking about the same lately. My thought is that since all network OSes today are unix-like in the background, linux knowledge will be useful when debugging some stuff in the network. Also, linux provides a great environment to build cool tools to manage, monitor and test network stuff.

    I use linux and bsd for a long time already, since the beginning of my IT career.
    I heard that RHCE has a lot of RedHat specific stuff, but anyway, it's the most valuable linux cert, so it's worth to get it. Even just for fun)
    I think it would be my last cert, before I go deeper into programming world.
