Refreshed: OpenStack Foundation’s Certified OpenStack Administrator COA

Our Course Author, Amy Marrich, just refreshed the OpenStack Foundation’s Certified OpenStack Administrator COA course! This new course is based on the latest version of the OpenStack Certification (Newton) and features a couple of more hands-on labs.

In this course, Amy discusses the different OpenStack services that are part of the certification: Dashboard, Identity Service, Image Service, Networking, Compute, Object Storage, Block Storage, and Orchestration.

The OpenStack Foundation has developed the Certified OpenStack Administrator exam which offers a career path based certification for OpenStack professionals. The exam is performance-based and will test the baseline skills of an OpenStack Administrator, a person with at least 6 months of OpenStack experience who provides day-to-day operations and management of an OpenStack cloud. Linux Academy offers an outstanding course that follows the objectives needed for the Certified OpenStack Administrator certification.

If you’re interested in mastering this course, we suggest to have these courses under your belt first:
