I’m more in love with SaltStack now than I was before the training started!

Healthcare provider

This was the best technical training I've experienced in my 17-year tech career. It moved at an appropriate pace and was interesting for the entire 20 hours. The trainer had a deep knowledge of the product and had great answers to all questions.

Construction equipment manufacturer

A fantastic course with an engaging and extremely knowledgable trainer who was willing and able to provide helpful answers to real-world usage and best practices questions. He kept the class moving, explained things clearly and provided many examples from real-world experience...a unique quality in a trainer.

Grocery retailer

The SaltStack Admin I course is worth every penny. The included training manual contains the best SaltStack documentation I've seen with tons of examples and best practices I haven't seen anywhere else. I highly recommend this training for people new to Salt or anyone wanting to supplement existing knowledge.
