You must hold the Red Hat RHCE certification.

Exams cost $749 each on their own or $549 each when purchased together with the corresponding course. Training is available but not required.

Continuing Requirements:

Certifications tied to earlier versions of RHEL are subject to the recertification policy in force when they were earned.

RHCSS certification is valid as long as your RHCE certification is current (two releases).
