Red Hat Academy

Bridging the Gap

Between Education and Industry

“Most higher education institutions seek to prepare their graduates to be ‘work ready,’ so it’s no surprise that many of them have incorporated Linux-related content into their curricular programs. As the popularity of Linux in modern IT has grown, so has the demand for Linux and related skills in the job market. But building these courses so they match the expectations of enterprises, keeping them up to date as technology rapidly evolves, and properly supporting them with hands-on labs and exercises can be a complex, difficult, and costly undertaking. This is why we created the Red Hat Academy.”

KEN GOETZ, GLOBAL VICE PRESIDENT RED HAT TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION

EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF I.T. TECHNOLOGISTS

Red Hat® Academy provides a curriculum to help education institutions keep pace with the demands of industry. The curriculum involves hands-on instruction across platform, middleware, and cloud technologies built with input from Red Hat development, support, and field consulting teams. Unlike a generic “distribution agnostic” Linux® curriculum, Red Hat’s curriculum is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the leading enterprise Linux platform. Rather than learning theoretical skills, students learn practical skills based on use cases from thousands of enterprise implementations.

At Red Hat, we believe that closing the technology skills gap is vitally important to the future of enterprise software— and the opportunity to do so should be available to all. That’s why we’ve made Red Hat Academy accessible to as many qualified academic institutions as possible. Eligibility is for nonprofit institutions or those that grant degrees, certificates, or diplomas.
