It’s an interesting time to be a systems administrator. While companies are moving to offload some of their infrastructure into the cloud, sysadmins and systems engineers who earn advanced certifications will be in high demand for a long time.

One of the most in-demand IT certifications right now is the Red Hat Certified System Administrator, or RHCSA. And earning it also puts you on track for the Red Hat Certified Engineer certification, a great step if you wish to become a systems engineer as it is one of the most profitable certifications available. 

  • RHCSA exam cost: $400
  • Prerequisites: none
