QA, the UK leader in IT and business skills training, has been chosen by Chef, the leader in automation for DevOps, to be its official training partner in the UK. Chef is an IT automation platform which turns infrastructure into code and enables companies to accelerate software delivery and reduce operational risk.

Adrian Jakeman, QA’s Head of IT Training, commented:

"We're really delighted to have been selected by Chef based on our reputation for leading the way in DevOps training, as well as our national coverage and are very much looking forward to working with them. The launch of the QA Chef training programme is a great addition to our already extensive portfolio. As DevOps is being adopted by more organisations, there really is no better time for systems administrators and developers to learn how to use Chef and realise the benefits in time-saving and management capability that the product provides."

Brian Turner, Director of Learning at Chef, added:

"QA possesses significant Chef and DevOps experience, in addition to a unique understanding of the complex IT challenges facing UK organizations. The QA team has already been teaching Chef skills to great success and we're looking forward to working with them closely in building a thriving core of Chef expertise in the UK."
