The Linux Foundation has announced its first ever bootcamp program, designed to take individuals from newbie to certified cloud engineer in six months. The training begins with Linux at the operating system layer, and moves up the stack, covering DevOps, cloud, containers and more, providing all the knowledge needed to work as a cloud engineer.
The Linux Foundation Cloud Engineer Bootcamp bundles self-paced eLearning courses with certification exams and dedicated instructor support for a well-rounded educational program.
“A price point significantly below most bootcamps, coupled with industry-leading certifications and vendor-neutral training, makes this offering a tremendous value and provides an accessible option for individuals looking to break into the IT and cloud industries. At the same time, it will help close the talent gap and ensure adequate staffing for companies seeking cloud talent,” quipped Clyde Seepersad, SVP and general manager of training & certification at The Linux Foundation.
Courses included in this bootcamp:
Essentials of Linux System Administration (LFS201)
Linux Networking and Administration (LFS211)
Containers Fundamentals (LFS253)
DevOps and SRE Fundamentals: Implementing Continuous Delivery (LFS261)
Kubernetes Fundamentals (LFS258)
Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator Exam (LFCS)
Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam (CKA)
Participants will also have access to a bootcamp-specific online forum to interact with other students and instructors, as well as live virtual office hours with course instructors five days per week. Those who spend 15-20 hours per week on the materials should expect to complete the bootcamp in about six months.
Upon completion, participants will receive badges for the LFCS and CKA certification exam, as well as a badge for completing the entire bootcamp. Badges can be independently verified by potential employers at any time.
