Join the first FinOps Foundation in-person training in over two years! The lead instructors for this course are the experienced Ashley Hromatko and Ben De Mora.


The FinOps Certified Practitioner course allows individuals in a large variety of cloud, finance and technology roles to validate their FinOps knowledge and enhance their professional credibility. The certification covers FinOps fundamentals and an overview of key concepts in each of the three sections of the FinOps lifecycle: Inform, Optimize and Operate.

  • Live in-person instructor-led workshop
  • Interactivity: The course features a number of group discussion and live activities. Please come prepared to share your knowledge and ask questions.
  • FinOps Certified Practitioner exam
  • Includes all the digital, video and course materials in the self-paced course for study or review ($599 value)
  • Understand the basics of how cloud computing works, know the key services on your cloud providers, including their common use cases, and have a basic understanding of billing and pricing models.
  • Be able to describe the basic value proposition of running in cloud and understand the core concept of using a pay-as-you-go consumption model.
  • Have a base level of knowledge of at least one of the three main public cloud providers (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud). For AWS, we recommend AWS Business Professional training or, even better, the AWS Cloud Practitioner certification. For Google, check out  Google Cloud Digital Leader course. For Azure, try the Azure Fundamentals learning path. Each can usually be completed in a full-day workshop.

The certification is designed for those who plan to hold a position on a FinOps team or support FinOps or cloud financial management, or if you support FinOps teams as consultants, vendors, or trainers. You will develop an understanding of FinOps, its practice areas, and how it’s applied to enhance business value from cloud spend.

Organizations undergoing a public cloud-first strategy or who are in the midst of a public cloud migration will also benefit greatly.
