The DevSecOps Practitioner course is intended as a follow-on to the DevSecOps Foundation course. The course builds on previous understanding to dive into the technical implementation. The course aims to equip participants with the practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization involved in reliability 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 implementing DevSecOps practices to their organizational structure, building better pipelines in distributed systems, and having a common technological language. This course positions learners to successfully complete the DevSecOps Practitioner certification exam.
