Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) is the Master Level Certification Program with in-depth, hands-on training for Senior Linux System Administrators enabling them to design and deploy large and complex Linux based environments. This is a capstone Certification, and shall be above RHCSA, RHCE, RHCVA, RHCDS, RHCSS etc.
The full RHCA curriculum consists of four-advanced 400-level Enterprise Architect courses and an upper-level security course (RHS333).
The course or modules for RHCA includes:
RH 413 - Red Hat Server Hardening
RH 401 - Red Hat Enterprise Deployment and Systems Management
RH 436 - RedHat Enterprise Storage Management
RH 442 - Red Hat Enterprise System Monitoring and Performance Tuning
RH 318 - Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Unlike the RHCSA and RHCE certification programs, RHCA courses can be pursued on module basis i.e. each course can be taken separately and Redhat endorsement can be achieved for that particular course by taking the certification exam successfully for the same, making it convenient for senior administrators to choose their area of specialisation without going through the entire course saving money and time. This compartmental system also provides the flexibility to attain RHCA in a phased manner thus reducing the risk of taking the advanced modules at one stretch.
The prerequisite for RHCA or for any of the 400- level course is a current RHCE certification. For more details, check out the RHEL 6 FAQs.
The training team will be led by Mr. Arun Eapen, Senior Technical Consultant - Red Hat India. He is also the first certified RHC*(RHCSS, RHCDS & RHCA) from India! As per available statistics, there are just 3 RHCAs from India.
The new International Centre is expected to attract students looking for Advanced international certifications like RHCSS & RHCA from regions including Europe, Middle East and the Far East. Read more>>
It was very nice camp that i've it over there . Training was really excellent and it worth the money i spent over there. As i said to you earlier about my exam results ,(though i got only180 marks) but i've gained confidence like anything in the LINUX world. It has given me new strength to face the interviews pertaining to LINUX as well as the Clients. Once again thanks for all your support you have extended till the training ends. Wishing you a many more successful events and a great year ahead..!!

A home away from home ! That's how I would sum up my RHCA training experience at IPSR,Kochi. From the very inception, the management and staff went out of their way to assure that my sojourn in Kochi was pleasant and comfortable in every way. The accommodation facilities suggested by Benila Madam were all fit and proper and economical, and she was also particular to enquire at all times whether I was really enjoying my stay in Kochi in all respects. I couldn't find the time to explore the city in much detail, but the little that I saw left an indelible mark on my mind.Honestly, when I set out on my RHCA journey about a year back, I had a fair amount of qualms and misgivings as to how it would all turn out, considering the hefty sum I was to spend for doing the three RHCA modules, travelling all the way from Kolkata. Self-appointed advisors had chorused that all my money would go down the drain as one can never imbibe and assimilate properly via such short term courses where the instructors simply go through the motions, treating the subject matter in a very superficial and perfunctory manner. But, how wrong they were ! Not only I, but any other candidate of our batches, would readily attest to the very thorough and painstakingly perfect manner in which all the three modules were covered by our instructor, Shri Sreejith Anujam. Here was a man who not only really knew what he was talking about but was equally keen to ensure that every student did actually absorb everything he had to deliver and get their money's worth. Our lab practice sessions always went far beyond the normal stipulated closure hours and the IPSR staff was always kind enough to extend our class timings to the extent that we might require completing our lab assignments. Needless to say, all the machines and lab equipment were measuring up to the most exacting standards. Besides, this we always availed extra practice sessions prior to exam dates, thanks again to the co-operation from IPSR staff. With their multifarious training courses going on all the time, it was not exactly an easy thing to provide extra practice lab-sessions ahead of our exams as per wishes, but our wishes were somehow accommodated most of the times.All in all, it was an unforgettable experience. For anyone intending to RHCA courses,I can think of no better place in India.

"It was a nice experience with IPSR for almost 1.5 months striving for RHCA.The most important thing is that the faculties are well experienced and dedicated to the work and totally helpful in delivering classes and prepare for exams.I did expertise training for RH318,RH333,RH436,RH442 and RH401.I appreciate all the efforts of IPSR from management to the classroom delivery and wish all the success in future.Keep going for more heights. Would recommend IPSR for RHCA for aspiring candidates.

"Thanks Benila for arranging my hostel accommodation and that too at a very much affordable rate. I spoke to her may times (sorry Benilla I disturbed you that many times!) which gave me the initial confidence when I landed in Kochi. By the way I even did not know difference between Kochi, Ernakulam and Cochin. I thought they are all very different. Despite such a confusing idea of Kochi I still could comfortably find my accommodation, my place of training etc.
