RHCVA Exam (EX318)
The performance-based RHCVA Exam (EX318) tests a candidate’s knowledge and skills to create, deploy, and manage Linux® and Microsoft Windows virtual machines hosted on either Red Hat® Enterprise Linux servers or dedicated hypervisor nodes using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.
IT professionals who are evaluating a migration from other virtualization technologies and want to fully understand what skills are needed to administer Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization technology
System administrators whose jobs include managing virtual environments
This exam is performance-based, meaning that candidates must perform tasks on a live system, rather than answering questions about how one might perform those tasks.
An RHCE may apply the RHCVA exam as a Certificate of Expertise in lieu of Red Hat Enterprise Directory Services and Authentication Expertise Exam (EX423) toward the RHCDA, and RHCA credentials.
An RHCVA certification has a ‘current’ window of 3 calendar years.
