FAQ

Why DevOps?
DevOps is a growing field in software development organizations. Organizations are constantly adopting DevOps practices which increases the demand for DevOps engineers. As a DevOps engineer you own the development lifecycle (responsible for the release, deploy, operation and monitoring of production software applications). This means high collaboration with different functions in the organization (e.g. developers, QA engineers, project managers, product managers and more) which results in a high and central visibility in the organization. DevOps encourages innovation with automating process and working with state of the art cloud services. This ensures you will always be in the front of new technologies.
What practical skills will I gain from the course?
The course will help you enter the DevOps field. The main skills you learn in the course are: Linux operating system, Python programming language, Networking and Security, Virtualization, Containers (Docker) and Orchestration (Kubernetes), CI/CD, Monitoring and Alerting. Everything will be backed-up with real life hands-on projects. In addition to these technical skills, you will also gain soft skills that will help you elevate your networking, CV and interview abilities and ultimately find your first job!
Do I need previous coding experience?
It is best to have previous coding experience for this demanding program. However, it is possible to successfully complete the program without.
What are the delivery methods for your training?
We understand that every organization has its unique setting which dictates the relevant learning environment. We support them all!
- Online (via zoom or Microsoft Teams) vs. In Person (at any location designated by you) vs. Hybrid
- Instructor lead vs. self learning with our Learning System vs. Hybrid
How many participants can attend the same course?
In order to ensure an effective learning process, based on our professional experience, a cohort of participants should be up to 20. In the case of a group of participants more than 20 and up to 40, we offer a TA (teacher assistant).
Is your training interactive?
Definitely!
We believe that the best way to learn and evolve is through experience and hands-on practice.
Who delivers your courses?
All our instructors are professionals with proven experience, which were certified by Elevation to become exceptional instructors.
What will the participants leave with?
Do you mean anything except for new knowledge and skills?! In each course we provide takeaways to the participants with summary and cheat sheets. In addition, the access to course content remains available on the Elevation Learning System up to 6 months after the end of course.
