You need to sign up today for a new online course for cloud engineers if you want to take advantage of a price-reducing deal. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), along with the Linux Foundation, has an introductory offer of a $400 discount.

The Cloud Engineer Bootcamp bundles self-paced eLearning courses with certification exams. Participants also get dedicated instructor support.


The course modules start with Linux at the operating system layer, and go on up the stack to cover DevOps, cloud and containers, with the aim of providing all the knowledge needed to work as a cloud engineer. The specific courses and exams included, all of which are taken online, are:

  • Essentials of Linux System Administration
  • Linux Networking and Administration
  • Containers Fundamentals
  • DevOps and SRE Fundamentals: Implementing Continuous Delivery
  • Kubernetes Fundamentals
  • Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator Exam
  • Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam

The participants get direct access to the course instructors via an interactive online forum, and can contact them for video chats during weekday office hours.

The bootcamp can be completed in six months with 15-20 hours of study time per week. Successful participants will earn three qualifications - one for passing the LFCS exam, one for passing the CKA exam, and one for completing the entire bootcamp.

Certified cloud engineers are one of the 15 highest paying IT jobs, according to the CNCF, with median salaries approaching $150,000, and a consistent shortage of individuals qualified for these roles.

The organizers say the components of this bootcamp have a value of $2,500, however it is priced at just $999, and if you sign up by June 17, the full bootcamp, which includes exams, is available at an introductory price of $599.
