Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Foundation℠

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Foundation℠

Today’s organizations deal with a higher volume of change in a more complex tech environment leading to a higher risk of outages and incidents. IT teams must improve service reliability and system resiliency. With automation and observability becoming key factors for more efficient and rapid deployments, the SRE profile has become one of the fastest-growing job roles.

To maintain the highest quality learning for our community, DevOps Institute Certifications expire two years from the date of completion. Members can maintain their certification by participating in the Continuing Education Program and earning Continuing Education Units through participation in learning opportunities.

“As a long-time Software Engineer moving into the Site Reliability space, I’ve read all the books I could get my hands on. Unfortunately, this left me with a confusing array of information without context. I came away with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of Site Reliability Engineering and information to better able to define what Site Reliability Engineering means to my organization.”

-Jeffrey Hines, Senior Site Reliability Engineer, Signify Health
