Scheduling Options

You can select a scheduled exam session from any of the listed dates below. Do you need greater flexibility when it comes to when and where you take your Red Hat tests? Red Hat's new Individual Exam Sessions provide a convenient alternative to the traditional classroom environment. Available through personal testing stations, Individual Exam Sessions allow you to schedule some of Red Hat's most popular exams for the date and time that works best for you.

Individual Exam Sessions offer the same Red Hat exams available in a classroom setting, with the same hands-on experience. A remote, professional proctor observes the session via cameras to ensure our high testing standards are upheld. The testing stations are simple to use, so you will be able to relax and concentrate on your exam. 

While Individual Exam Sessions are perfect for candidates who require convenience, they are also ideal for a number of other reasons. If you prefer extra prep time and do not want to take the exam that is normally scheduled at the end of a Red Hat Training classroom course, our Individual Exam Sessions allow you to schedule the exam further out, so you can have more study time. They are also great if you need to retake an exam.

Individual Exam Sessions are currently available at our Columbia, MD facility. To select an Individual Exam Session, choose the option labelled "Start Anytime".
