Introduction

The Site Reliability Engineering Foundation course is an introduction to the principles & practices that enable an organization to reliably and economically scale critical services. Introducing a site-reliability dimension requires organizational realignment, 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 practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization 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).

The course was developed by leveraging key SRE sources, engaging with thoughtleaders in the SRE space and working with organizations embracing SRE to extract reallife best practices and has been designed to teach the key principles & practices necessary for starting SRE adoption.

This course positions learners to successfully complete the SRE Foundation certification exam.
