Puppet Fundamentals for System Administrators (3 Days)
This class teaches students a best practice approach to managing their infrastructure using Puppet IT automation software, to maximize on the benefit of the Puppet Module Architecture. The course uses Puppet Enterprise in the classroom for all exercises and labs, but the concepts taught in the course apply equally to Puppet’s Open Source solution.

After completing this course, students will be able to deploy basic system configurations using best practices for Puppet in a Master-Client setup.

Customer may cancel a class at any time. If Customer notifies Puppet Labs in writing that it will not attend the class at least fourteen business days in advance of the class, Puppet Labs will refund to Customer the amount Customer paid for the class. If Customer notifies Puppet Labs in writing that it will not attend the class less than fourteen but more than seven business days in advance of the class, Customer must still pay for the class and Puppet Labs will provide Customer with a credit for the amounts paid for the class that Customer may apply to any other class offered within one year from the date of the cancelled class. If Customer fails to notify Puppet Labs that it will not attend the class at least seven business days in advance of the class, Customer must still pay for the class, and Puppet Labs is not required to issue Customer a refund or a credit.
Puppet Labs may reschedule or cancel the date, time and location of a class at any time, and may freely replace any personnel who may be scheduled to teach the class. Should Puppet Labs cancel a class, unless such cancellation was for circumstances beyond Puppet Labs’ control, Puppet Labs will refund to Customer any amounts paid for said class. If Puppet Labs has to cancel a class for circumstances beyond its control, Puppet Labs will issue Customer a credit for the amounts paid by Customer for the class that Customer may apply to any other class offered within one year from the date of the cancelled class. Otherwise, Puppet Labs is not liable to Customer for any other costs, expenses or amounts incurred by Customer in relation to the class (for example, any travel expenses or lost business time).
