Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Practitioner

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Practitioner

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 enterprise roles and set of operational practices for managing services at scale.

“To support the growing need for SRE professionals with advanced skills, DevOps Institute is excited to release the SRE Practitioner certification as a follow-on to the popular Foundation certification to validate knowledge and understanding of advanced SRE practices, methods and tools for those focused on large-scale service scalability and reliability.”
