Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Foundation Training

Level: Foundation

The SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) Foundation course is an introduction to the principles & practises that enable an organisation to reliably and economically scale critical services. Introducing a site-reliability dimension requires organisational re-alignment, a new focus on engineering & automation, and the adoption of a range of new working paradigms.

The course highlights the evolution of SRE and its future direction, and equips participants with the practises, methods, and tools to engage people across the organisation involved in reliability and stability evidenced through the use of 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 understanding, setting and tracking Service Level Objectives (SLO’s).
