Cribl Launches Certification Program to Provide Training and Accreditation to Observability Engineers


The Cribl Certified Observability Engineer program sets the industry-wide standard for developing and validating observability skills

SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Screen, the leader in open observability, today launched the Cribl Certified Observability Engineer (CCOE) program. This first-of-its-kind technical certification program aims to set the industry standard for skills related to the observability life cycle, from planning and design to operation and optimization. The program provides practitioners with the necessary training and validation of their expertise in the growing observability space. CCOE is free and available to everyone via Cribl University.

As data volumes continue to grow, observability engineers are on the front lines processing a deluge of observability data into IT and security business cases. Being able to manage observability data efficiently and effectively has become a critical role within the world’s largest companies, and the CCOE program sets universal standards for what it means to master the skills of a true observability engineer.

Cribl launches CCOE to empower anyone in the observability space to better understand key tools and how to unlock the value of all observability data. The CCOE program provides training to produce the shortest time to value and cost control for data growth, and offers lab training on validated solutions.

“At Cribl, we believe that technical education should be free and accessible to everyone. As the growth of observability and telemetry data accelerates, we are launching CCOE to meet growing business demand for internal experts who can build an observability infrastructure that scales,” said Clint Sharp, co-founder and CEO of Cribl. “We are lowering the barrier to entry by creating a program that appeals to people of all skill levels. Observability engineers can now distinguish themselves as experts and newbies can step into the observability space to the first time.”

CCOE has launched two foundational courses:

  1. CCOE feed user is the foundational certification designed to introduce, educate and validate one’s ability to effectively use Cribl Stream to build an observability architecture that provides organizations with choice of tools and control over all observability and telemetry data.
  2. CCOE Stream Administrator is the next level certification and offers a deeper technical dive into telemetry data reduction, enrichment, routing and replay. It relies on the CCOE feed user certification and prepares the participant with workforce-ready skills to be the observability data expert within their organization.

“Cribl’s products are quickly becoming the absolute heart of any architecture, whether it’s log management, storage or analytics systems. Having people who can get the most out of the products for our customers is absolutely essential for us,” said Stuart Bowell, Global Head of Observability at NETbuilder. “We need to know they can do the job, and the CCOE assures us that they can.”
