I just got this about certifications. It looks like RHC[ET] will be tied to the releases of RHEL.
Yesterday, Red Hat announced the early availability of ISOs via RHN for Red Hat Linux 9, the next release. The official announcement of Red Hat Linux 9 is forthcoming. News travels quickly, however, and many RHCEs and RHCTs have learned that the next version is 9, not 8.1. A number have expressed concerns about the effect this will have on their certification.
Our policy has been that a certificate is considered current for two major releases following the major release under which it was earned. Consequently, certificate holders are concerned that the period for which their certificates remain current has been shortened.
In order to accomodate the release of Red Hat Linux 9, the policy described in the RHCE FAQ at
Regards and best wishes, Red Hat Certification Central
While evidence suggests that RHCEs who stay professionally active can evolve their skills in pace with new releases of Red Hat Linux OS technology, it is important for Red Hat to maintain a policy for determining whether an RHCE or RHCT certificate can be considered current. Thus, verification services provided for all RHCEs at Certification Central <https://www.redhat.com/training/certification/> have always included which version a certificate was earned on, and whether the certificate is considered current or no longer current.
The validity period for all RHCEs and RHCTs is now officially pegged to the release of the Enterprise product commercially available at the time certification was earned, and certification shall be current until after one (1) major release of the Enterprise product. All RHCEs earned on Red Hat Linux 7.3 or prior will be considered current until the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES/WS 4. All RHCEs and RHCTs earned on Red Hat Linux 8.0 or 9 will remain current until the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Validity and current status of an RHCE certificate will continue to be verified at Certification Central.
