The Site Reliability Engineering Foundation® (SREF) Certification Training is an introduction to the principles and practices that enable an organization to reliably and economically scale critical services. Introducing a site-reliability dimension requires organizational re-alignment, 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. It equips participants with the practices, methods, and tools to engage people across the organization involved in reliability and stability evidenced using 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 (SLOs).
