The SaltStack Administration training course provides an IT professional the fundamental skills needed to manage Salt infrastructure.

The course begins with the installation, configuration, and use of remote execution modules for basic salt management.

It then builds on those concepts with the implementation of Salt states. The Salt states sections include creating SLS files and state trees, setting requisites and declarations, and using the default YAML and Jinja renderers. There is instruction on utilizing Salt grains, pillars in state files.
