How a Test Engineer can convert into Cloud automation role ?

As per the ISTQB certifications, the technical test engineer role is to do the test automation and setup the test environments. In the Cloud technology era, they need to perform the same activities in Cloud environments also. Most of the Technical role based people need to learn the Cloud Infrastructure building domain knowledge which is very essential. It will not come in a year or two. Through special coaching only it is possible to build the resource CAPABILITIES.

In the same direction the technical TEST ENGINEER can learn the Infra domain knowledge and also the code snippets with JSON to automate the Infra setup in Cloud. This role has tremendous demand in the IT Job Market. There are very few people globally with these skills as demand has very high and it is accelerating. Converting from the Test engineer role is very easier if they learn the infra conversion domain knowledge.

I am offering a coaching to convert the technical test engineers into Cloud Infra Automation. This course is going to be in 2-3 months duration as part time, with weekly 4-6 sessions. Offline they need to spend the practice on doing their Infra POCs with a daily 2-3 hours efforts. Once they complete this coaching to build them as Cloud Infra automation expert, I will help and push them into the open market to get the higher CTC. In India, I have helped to NON-IT people also.

For my recent students performance and their achievement in getting the Higher CTC, see their comments from the  below  URL:

  2. This video has the Mock interview with a DevOps Engineer for a JD of CA, USA based Product company.
    One can understand what capabilities are lacking in self through this JD.
    Each company will have their own JD, the requirement is different.
    We need to compare your present skills with it before you go for the F2F interviews.
    That way the Mock interviews are helpful to a job hunting candidate.

  3. Sr. SRE1-Mock interview with JD for Senior Site Reliability Engineer Role
    This interview was conducted against to the JD of a
    Sr. Site Reliability Engineer for Bay Area, CA, USA.
    The participant is with 4+Years of DevOp/Cloud experience with total 10+ years
    of global IT experience worked with different social/product companies.
    There are different JD points compared from his previous JD discussion points.
    These differences were highlighted and drilled down as client does it.
    In reality from each JD the interview process is different in live,
    one need to really practice with experienced mentors then only the confidence will be gained.
