However, the specific training needs of each engineer varies depending on several factors:

  • The maturity of your organization in adopting SRE principles, practices, and culture
  • The knowledge those individuals have about your organization and infrastructure
  • The experience of the individuals being trained, both in terms of technical skill and familiarity with the SRE model
