DevOps Project Manager Certification

Hi Team,

Could anyone tell me what certification is required to become DevOps Project Manger ?

DevOps is a change to people, process & technology to break down the walls between development & operations. As such, I'm not clear on what you mean by DevOps Project Manager - is it a PM leading a project to change an organization's delivery capability to be more agile, or is it someone managing a technology project in a DevOps-enabled environment?

In either case, I don't feel that certification should be your first priority - gaining experience managing one or more technology projects in an agile environment would be a better bet.


There are several options for becoming certified with DevOps - AWS, Puppet, DevOps Institue. From there, you can combine with a Project Management credential and market yourself as such.

To my knowledge, there is no 'DevOps Project Manager', though you can be proficient and experienced with devops as a project manager.

Since it's fairly new in terms of certifications, it's hard to know what ones will become the industry standard. Therefore hold off on those certifications, and as kiron said gaining experience in these projects is more important for now.

I came through this certification course for DevOps Project Manager. Any thoughts?

Yes, my thoughts are that "certification body" is not legitimate. They also offer MBA's and all sorts of mama and papa shop certifications. You got duped.

Agree, but not many people in industry knows the facts and differences. For example, CSM is more popular than PMI ACP and anyone can get CSM whereas PMI ACP is more streamlined. Similarly for DevOps since it's new there are so many illegitimate certification bodies that are misleading.

CSM really has to be one of the biggest con jobs in certification history. Well maybe not that bad lol, but you get the idea.

I was under the impression DevOps is for IT only.

So if it covert just one industry would it make sense for PMI to go there?
