The course helps participants prepare for the Red Hat Certified JBoss Administration (RHCJA) certification examination.

Red Hat recommends that participants earn Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) or Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) before attempting this exam, but neither is required.

An understanding of core concepts in Java Enterprise Edition is useful, but participants do not need to be developers nor does this exam involve application development tasks.

During the examination, participants perform a number of routine system administration tasks and are evaluated on whether they have met specific objective criteria.
