[ale] Web site to help people become professional Linux System Administrators?



Actually it is required to get your RHCE.  Once upon a time upper level certs like RHCDS or RHCA would attach to your RHCE, now everything attaches to your RHCSA.

While general Linux skilz would be useful, the exam is very geared toward a professional engineer working in a high-count RHEL environment. A solid understanding of how to setup and configure a RHEL server for a variety of common needs each with a bit of a twist is a requirement to survive the test. The test has a 50% first pass rate. Only the CNA test is viewed higher by those signing paychecks. There are additional, higher-order RHEL tests, RHCA - RedHat Certified Architect , that requires a RHCE to start plus 5 of 7 additional specialty certifications.
