DevOps Specialist

290 Hours / 7-9 Months, Part Time Program

This part-time DevOps program features expert instruction, hands-on projects, AI-driven automation methodologies, and a real connection to the industry to get graduates hired.

DevOps is the union of people, processes, and products that enables the continuous delivery of value to endusers.  DevOps aims to create a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can take place rapidly, frequently, and reliably, so the company can innovate like a startup and scale like an enterprise. 

Wawiwa’s DevOps Program enables graduates to understand why organizations need DevOps and to learn how to get started with DevOps. Trainees will learn the key ideas and techniques to bring development and operations together, resulting in high-quality, high-speed software development and delivery. Crucially, our program integrates the use of advanced Artificial Intelligence tools in the training process. This equips learners to understand and implement AI-driven automation methodologies, effectively enhancing the development lifecycle and improving deployment efficiency.

Enable Students to Bridge the Gap in Software Development & Operations

Take leadership and collaboration skills to the next level by teaching students to work across teams to manage data and carry out updates for new product releases. In the end, graduates can help organizations to develop products faster and easily maintain existing deployments.

Open Doors With Industry Connections

Equip students to succeed in a rapidly expanding field with help from our network of DevOps experts, instructors, hiring partners, and alumni. The DevOps Specialist curriculum was created in collaboration with the industry’s leading companies to make our programs as relevant as possible to the local industry’s needs, assuring graduates will be job-ready as soon as the program ends.

Guide Students to Deliver a Professional Project

Throughout the program, practical skills are acquired through the completion of projects that tackle real-world problems from end to end. Students will gain hands-on experience with code releases and deployments, work collaboratively with others to address release barriers, and more, compiling a portfolio of projects designed to reinforce what students have learned in each unit for releasing updates efficiently.

Who Is the Program For?
