  • Level: Intermediate

This SecDevOps Practitioner® (SDOP) Certification Training follows the SecDevOps foundational practice in Course 3695, SecDevOps Foundation® (SDOF) Certification Training. While the foundation course provides a basic understanding and outlines the roadmap for implementation, this practitioner-level class adds a range of techniques for a more comprehensive understanding of SecDevOps. This includes achieving optimum outcomes by designing the right pipeline architecture, creating an effective team, and establishing best-practice processes.

SecDevOps Practitioner Certification Training FAQs

SecDevOps is a powerful modern approach for creating software that integrates security into the development life cycle. The effectiveness of the U.S. (United States) Department of Homeland Security (DHS) initiative has been empirically proven to improve cyber protection significantly. As a result, it is invaluable for reaching current CMMC (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) requirements for vendors and government agencies.

DevSecOps and SecDevOps are remarkably similar frameworks. SecDevOps is formally proffered by DHS and has a distinctly “security first” philosophy. Over time, SecDevOps is evolving new insights and practices that go beyond the original scope of DevSecOps (such as planning, acquisition, and disposal of assets).

This course is intended for security experts, software developers, and operations specialists who must work in collaborative teams and understand SecDevOps basics. Accordingly, the material proceeds quickly into applicable practices for achieving highly robust CI/CD/CC results. The goal is to know where you are now, where you want to be in the future, and how best to get there.

Yes, this course includes case studies, group collaborations, and practical hands-on exercises using specific pipeline tools exclusive to Learning Tree's offering. It cannot be found in SecDevOps Practitioner certifications elsewhere.

This is not a course to learn specific tools. Instead, exercises use typical and popular tools that perform a mission that can be conceptually identified and extrapolated to other choices.

DevOps Institute certifications expire two years from the date earned and must be renewed before that expiration date. For an individual’s first DevOps Institute certification, 30 CEUs are required to maintain an active certification.  For individuals who hold more than one DevOps Institute certification, an additional 6 CEUs will be required for each additional certification. 
Learning Tree offers a variety of DOI CEU-eligible training to help you maintain your certification. View the list of DOI CEU-eligible training courses.
