Course description

The 3-day Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Practitioner® course, accredited by DevOps Institute, introduces ways to scale IT and digital services economically and reliably. It explores strategies to improve agility, cross-functional collaboration, and transparency of health of services towards building resiliency by design, automation, and closed loop remediations.

The SRE Practitioner course aims to equip participants with the practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization involved in reliability using real-life scenarios and case stories. Upon completion of the course, participants will have tangible takeaways to leverage when back in the office such as implementing SRE models that fit their organizational context, building advanced observability in distributed systems, building resiliency by design and effective incident responses using SRE practices.

This course positions learners to successfully complete the SRE Practitioner certification exam.

Benefits:

At the end of the SRE Practitioner course, the following learning objectives are expected to be achieved:

  • The story behind the SRE and its emergence at Google;
  • The inter-relationship of SRE with DevOps and other popular frameworks;
  • The underlying principles behind SRE;
  • Service Level Objectives (SLO’s) and their user focus;
  • Service Level Indicators (SLI’s) and the modern monitoring landscape;
  • Error budgets and the associated error budget policies;
  • Toil and its effect on an organization’s productivity;
  • Practical steps that can help to eliminate toil;
  • Observability as something to indicate the health of a service;
  • SRE tools, automation techniques and the importance of security;
  • Anti-fragility, our approach to failure and failure testing;
  • The organizational impact that introducing SRE brings.

Target audience:

The target audience for the SRE Foundation course are IT and digital professionals including:

  • Anyone starting or leading a move towards ultra-scalable and highly reliable distributed software systems,
  • Anyone interested in modern IT leadership and organizational change approaches,
  • Business Managers, Business Stakeholders, Change Agents, Consultants, IT specialists, DevOps practitioners, IT Directors, IT Managers, IT Team Leaders, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Software Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers, System Integrators, Tool Providers.
