12. Why doesn't Red Hat send a hard copy certificate?Electronic certificates provide several benefits. First, they can be sent at the same time that results are processed for immediate use by the person receiving the certificate. Second, they allow certificate holders to print multiple copies for use at home and at the office. Third, they make replacement faster and easier. And yes, they are also more cost-effective, which allows Red Hat to offer the RHCE Certification Exam at the same price today that it did when it launched the program in 1999. In addition, we believe that verification at www.redhat.com/training/certification/verify/ is far more valuable than a physical certificate. A hard copy certificate can be forged by anyone with a computer and a decent graphics program. Having a unique certificate number that is verifiable by its issuer (in this case, Red Hat), is far more authoritative, reliable, and valuable.
