Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp makes it simple for IT pros to learn cloud

CNCF Staff Post

Following the successful launch of the Cloud Engineer Bootcamp last month, The Linux Foundation and CNCF heard from many sysadmins, developers, engineers, and others who wanted a similarly structured program to help them learn the skills necessary to move into cloud engineering but with more advanced training. These individuals did not need the beginner training courses included Cloud Engineer Bootcamp.

That led us to launch a new Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp. The program includes six training courses and registration for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam, along with dedicated online support forums and weekday live video chat with instructors. Designed for working professionals, the program can be completed in as little as six months with around 10 hours per week of study time.

The Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp includes:

  • Containers Fundamentals (LFS253)
  • Kubernetes Fundamentals (LFS258)
  • Service Mesh Fundamentals (LFS243) – available July 31
  • Monitoring Systems and Services with Prometheus (LFS241)
  • Cloud Native Logging with Fluentd (LFS242)
  • Managing Kubernetes Applications with Helm (LFS244)
  • Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam (CKA)

The program goes beyond the Cloud Engineer Bootcamp by offering training in more advanced cloud native toolsets such as Helm and Service Mesh, while still providing the fundamentals of containers and Kubernetes.

The Advanced Cloud Engineer Bootcamp is available for immediate enrollment. The standard $999 Bootcamp fee provides unlimited access to the course for one year including all content and labs. Through July 31, 2020, the Bootcamp is being offered at an introductory fee of $599. Interested individuals may enroll here.
