DevOps training now accredited by ICAgile, an internationally-recognized certification and accreditation body

Fairfax, VA., June 8, 2016 — Coveros, the market leader in secure software development using agile methods, announced today that its Fundamentals of DevOps course has been accredited to meet certification training requirements established by the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile). The ICAgile Certified Professional in Foundations of DevOps (ICP-FDO) certification is one of three ICAgile certifications Coveros offers as an ICAgile Member Training Organization.

“Coveros is proud to have the first certified DevOps course,” said Jeffery Payne, CEO. “This validates the DevOps best practices Coveros has pioneered and sets a bar for the industry practitioners to ensure that client organizations both understand and can leverage the benefits DevOps can provide to every Software Development organization.”

As a leader and innovator in DevOps integrated infrastructure automation, Coveros has partnered with ICAgile in the creation of its newest learning track and curriculum. The curriculum is designed to educate software development and operations professionals to leverage DevOps principles and practices to build efficiency and quality into their software development processes. Coveros, with the first DevOps course to be accredited, lead the development of curriculum learning objectives and is partnering with ICAgile to kick off the beta launch of the new DevOps learning track.

Integration, communication, and collaboration between development and operations are both difficult and critical for efficiency and reduction of production deployment risks. Automation of the build, test, and deployment process is a keystone capability for any agile software project. Coveros’ Fundamentals of DevOps course teaches organizations industry best practices to combine development, testing, and operations and implement continuous integration, automated testing, continuous delivery, and rapid deployment while increasing efficiency and quality.

“We are excited to have created a complete DevOps learning journey that leads to mastery. The track begins with a foundational certificate targeted to those interested in or already undergoing a DevOps transition. It then becomes increasingly technical and hands-on as professionals progress towards the ICAgile Certified Expert (ICE) certification, which is only awarded to professionals who demonstrate competence in front of an expert panel. With DevOps increasing in popularity, it’s important for the training courses to be accredited against proven, discipline-specific learning objectives,” said Ahmed Sidky, President of ICAgile. “We’re thrilled about Coveros’ contribution to the development of our DevOps learning track.”
