Docker Fundamentals Training - 2 Day Course

Vizuri is proud to serve as an official authorized training and consulting partner for Docker, Inc. Over the past 2+ years, we have provided training to over 500 individuals from over 100 different organizations (including Fortune 100).

Ensure your team learns Docker the right way with official training from Docker, Inc. The official Docker curriculum focused on learning by doing with extensive hands-on labs, enterprise-focused scenarios, and practical examples. All official Docker classes are updated regularly to ensure the latest product releases and best practices are covered.


The Docker Fundamentals course is considered a prerequisite for the Docker Security course unless you already have solid foundational experience with Docker.

If you are interested in taking our Docker Security course, we will be having a 1-day class on November 14th, 2017 at the same training location (Learning Tree International, Reston, VA). Please visit our Eventbrite page to sign up!

What you'll learn

In the Docker Fundamentals training course, students will learn the foundational concepts and practices of containerization on a single Docker node. They’ll also gain an understanding of basic container orchestration and how to scale Docker across multiple nodes in a simple swarm cluster. This course provides essential foundational knowledge for all other official Docker courses.

The class includes lecture, hands-on labs, and discussion with certified Docker instructors.

Docker, Inc. will provide trainees with an official certificate of completion at the end of the training. A take-home copy of the training material will also be provided.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do I need to bring to the course?

Students will need to bring their own laptop computer with SSH access (MacOS and most Linux distros have this by default; on Windows, you can get a client such as PuTTY). We will provide you with a server to SSH into for the exercises.

Please also make sure that you have a Github account and a Docker Hub account before the class as it will help to speed things up.
