Training and Certification
Why should I attend training at Puppetize Live?
Attending training at Puppetize Live gives you the opportunity to get hands-on training and hear the sharpest minds in DevOps tell their stories and share their experiences. With three days of training + Puppetize Live, you will have more even more opportunities to learn from experts and thought leaders, discuss ideas with your peers, and network with the Puppet community.We are also launching a new course, Getting Started with Puppet at Puppetize Live. This will be the first opportunity to attend this lab-based course which provides a guided, hands-on approach for new users to manage their infrastructure using the power of Puppet’s products.
What classes are available?
We are offering a new course, Getting Started with Puppet, and Puppet Practitioner in each city. Please see for here for course descriptions.
Is training before or after the event?
Training will be offered after the event in San Francisco and before the event in Sydney and Amsterdam. The specific dates of the training are:
- San Francisco: 10 - 12 October 2018 (Wednesday to Friday)
- Sydney: 7- 9 October 2018 (Sunday to Tuesday)

Should I attend Getting Started with Puppet if I have attended Puppet training in the past?
If you have taken Puppet Fundamentals or Puppetizing Infrastructure, you will recognize similar core content on how to manage your infrastructure with Puppet Enterprise. This course is a more hands-on approach, focused on lab work that corresponds to students' environments. This course also covers Puppet Discovery, Bolt and Puppet Tasks and provides an opinionated way to manage your own infrastructure.
