Red Hat OpenShift Administration Fundamentals Training

Coming Soon!

In this hands-on, lab-based course attendees will learn how to administer OpenShift clusters. OpenShift is a Certified Kubernetes distribution that makes it an Enterprise, trusted, and reliable Kubernetes-based platform. Features like container orchestration, auto-scaling, service discovery, load balancing, auto-failover/self-healing, and quota management are already available in Kubernetes. OpenShift provides various other services, such as more granular support for security and built-in CI/CD pipelines/DevOps capabilities.


  • Understanding OpenShift Architecture
  • Troubleshooting a Cluster
  • Configuring User & Application Security
  • Configuring Networking Components
  • Understanding Pod Scheduler
  • Configuring Manual and Auto Scaling
  • Using the Web Console


System administrators who are familiar with containerization and the basics of Kubernetes.


Intermediate knowledge of UNIX/Linux shell commands is useful but not mandatory.
