Red Hat has introduced trainings and certification offerings to improve IT professionals DevOps skills.
Specifically, the training is designed to improve expertise and certify individuals in containers, OpenShift, Ansible, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host and Puppet technology.
Individuals previously certified as Red Hat Certified Engineers and Red Hat Certified JBoss Developers, and who have passed these five additional exams, will be given the credential of Red Hat Certified Architect (RCHA) with a concentration in DevOps.
The courses will also be offered through Red Hat’s annual Learning Subscription that features unlimited access to Red Hat’s portfolio of training content in an on-demand setting.
"DevOps isn't a product but rather a culture and process. There are certain technologies and skills someone working in a DevOps environment should have,” Red Hat vice-president of training, Ken Goetz, said.
“Our goal with this new RHCA concentration is to offer a way for employers to validate these critical open source skills, and in the process, further enable enterprises to accelerate application delivery,” he added.
Red Hat director of certification, Randy Russell, said, "Red Hat is in a unique position to offer a credible certification with a focus on DevOps. IT professionals who pursue the RHCA concentration in DevOps can gain the skills and knowledge to build faster and more reliable delivery pipelines in enterprise environments."
