RHCE could be good for you

RHCE Certification: In order to earn RHCE, you must pass the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) exam. Someone can enroll in and take the RHCE exam without first having passed the RHCSA exam, but RHCE certification will not be issued until both credentials are earned by a candidate. In the event that a candidate has not yet earned RHCSA, Red Hat will retain the candidate's RHCE exam record and will attach that record to a candidates' RHCSA record once it is earned at a later date. The RHCE exam is a performance-based evaluation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux system administration skills and knowledge. Candidates perform a number of routine system administration tasks and are evaluated on whether they have met specific objective criteria. Performance-based testing means that candidates must perform tasks similar to what they must perform on the job.

I would prefer for RHCE. After doing RHCE you can work on other Linux flavors as well, Like I did, I have worked on SUSE as well.

Every flavor is having some difference from other.

RHCE is a key to get a Job in Linux Administration and Its most reputed among all other certificate.

I agree with upanwar above.

RedHat is the leading OpenSource Provider and has the biggest market share.

If you learn RedHat then you can work on Fedora and CentOS which are also widely used. Feodra is community edition of RedHat and CentOS is a free clone widely used in hosting companies and other industries.

Then you can jump on to learn some Ubuntu/Debian.
