DOFD Certification Training FAQs

If you envision a DevOps Adoption or Transformation Effort, the training journey for the DevOps Department will involve follow-on job-role competency training. This DevOps Institute Foundation Certificate is a pre-requisite for those practitioner-level courses. ICAgile’s DevOps Training Modules are more technical, involving more hands-on programming and testing.
