Kubernetes Training

We offer a growing catalog of public courses and private sessions through Heptio University, as well as other useful resources to help you get started using Kubernetes.

  Heptio University

Don’t go it alone. Heptio offers Kubernetes training to enable you to successfully set up, operate, and secure your Kubernetes environment.

Our courses are applicable to developers new to Kubernetes, operators looking to gain experience in deploying and running applications and clusters, or architects looking to build and run cloud native systems.

We deliver classes virtually or at your site. Both public and dedicated classes are available.

“Here at Upstream we use our in-house Kubernetes installation and would have considered ourselves “experts” in the field… until we met Heptio. Heptio helped us to increase our confidence through well-formatted training, giving us advice and solutions to not-so-common but easy to tackle problems. Meeting the people from Heptio was a real pleasure and we would definitely recommend their training program to anyone who is starting out or wants to advance their knowledge of Kubernetes.”
