For starters, you need a subscription for your test environments too.
If you plan on installing RHEL ES or AS on your test systems, they
*must* be subscribed as long as your production systems have
subscriptions - that's in the Red Hat subscription agreement.

On the other hand, you could run a 3rd-party rebuild of RHEL sources
(CentOS, WBL, etc.) and get a "close-enough" test environment.  The
rebuilds aren't 100% - some stuff could fail whereas they'll work with
RHEL binaries - but it might suit your purposes.

For my organization, we typically subscribe our test systems too.  The
only rebuild running here is in a virtual machine on my desktop.
