CCNA Tutorials and Materials, CCNA Certifications, RHCSA Certifications

Short answer:


Detailed answer:

Let’s start by defining each of these two certs:

What is CCNA?

CCNA exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. The topics include connecting to a WAN; implementing network security; network types; network media; routing and switching fundamentals; the TCP/IP and OSI models; IP addressing; WAN technologies; operating and configuring IOS devices; extending switched networks with VLANs; determining IP routes; managing IP traffic with access lists; establishing point-to-point connections; and establishing Frame Relay connections.

There are 10 different CCNA certifications “Security, Wireless, Cyber Ops, …etc”. The most popular one in the CCNA Routing and Switching which is considered the core certification. So whenever someone say CCNA, almost always he/she means CCNA Routing and Switching.

What is RHCSA?

An IT professional who has earned the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) is able to perform the core system administration skills required in Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments. The credential is earned after successfully passing the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) Exam (EX200).

A Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) is able to perform the following tasks:

◈ Understand and use essential tools for handling files, directories, command-line environments, and documentation
◈ Operate running systems, including booting into different run levels, identifying processes, starting and stopping virtual machines, and controlling services
◈ Configure local storage using partitions and logical volumes
◈ Create and configure file systems and file system attributes, such as permissions, encryption, access control lists, and network file systems
◈ Deploy, configure, and maintain systems, including software installation, update, and core services
◈ Manage users and groups, including use of a centralized directory for authentication
◈ Manage security, including basic firewall and SELinux configuration

Which cert will probably get you a job fast?

CCNA. Although Red Hat is popular it’s not as popular as networks by any mean. Almost everywhere in the world right now is connected through complex networks. So I believe CCNA give you a much higher probability to find your self a job.
