DevOps Institute Announces New DevOps Test Engineering (DTE) Course
February 28, 2017

The DevOps Institute (DOI) announced the newest course in its DevOps Practitioner series: DevOps Test Engineering (DTE).

DTE is unique in the testing training and certification market as it is the first course available that addresses testing in a DevOps environment. This includes the active use of test automation, testing earlier in the development cycle, and instilling testing skills in developers, quality assurance, security, and operational teams. DTE is relevant for any modern IT professional involved in defining or deploying a DevOps testing strategy for their organization.

“Testing engineering is the backbone of DevOps and the primary key for successful DevOps pipelines,” says Marc Hornbeek, author of the DTE course. “Anyone serious about DevOps will benefit from the comprehensive understanding of DevOps Test Engineering provided by this course.”

In the DTE course, participants experience an inclusive learning environment focusing on the methodology required for a DevOps culture. Candidates learn:

- The purpose, benefits, concepts and vocabulary of DevOps testing

- How DevOps testing differs from other types of testing

- The importance all IT roles play within testing

- DevOps testing strategies, best practices, infrastructure, tools, automation, and results analysis

- Strategies for selecting test tools and implementing test automation

- Integration of DevOps testing into Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery workflow

The audience for DTE includes quality assurance managers, testers and quality assurance teams, software engineers, software developers, DevOps engineers, IT managers, project managers, release managers and delivery staff, maintenance and support staff, as well as anyone involved in testing tool selection.

Successfully passing the certification exam leads to the candidate’s designation as a certified DevOps Test Engineer (DTE)℠. The certification is governed and maintained by DOI, and exams are delivered through DOI’s strategic partner PEOPLECERT, an independent, global examination partner.

The entire DevOps Practitioner series of courses supports IT roles for today’s enterprises. Each new DevOps certification course is focused towards continually addressing the emerging and growing needs of IT professionals and organizations worldwide.
