DevOps Program @ CICD

Why do you need formal training to be a DevOps Professional?

Formal training is important for becoming a DevOps professional because it provides a structured way to learn the foundational knowledge and technical skills required for this role.

Here are some reasons why formal training is important:

  • Technical skills: DevOps professionals need to be proficient in technical skills such as software development, infrastructure management, and automation tools. Formal training provides an organized way to learn and practice these skills, often with guidance from experienced instructors.
  • Best practices: There are established best practices for DevOps that can be difficult to learn without formal training. By learning these best practices, DevOps professionals can ensure they are following industry standards and producing high-quality software products that meet user needs.
  • Collaboration: DevOps requires collaboration across multiple teams, including developers, operations, and testing teams. Formal training often includes opportunities for collaboration with peers and instructors, which can help individuals learn from others’ experiences and perspectives. This can lead to a deeper understanding of the subject matter and more effective problem-solving skills.
  • Continuous learning: DevOps is a constantly evolving field, and new technologies and practices are introduced regularly. Formal training provides a foundation for continuous learning, enabling DevOps professionals to stay up to date with the latest trends and technologies in the field.

Overall, while it’s possible to gain the technical skills and knowledge required to become a DevOps professional through self-study, formal training provides a more structured and comprehensive way to learn the foundational skills required for this role. By investing in formal training, individuals can develop
the skills and knowledge they need to excel in this dynamic and rewarding field.
