Kubernetes is one of the world's most popular container orchestration tools. Established by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the Kubernetes Administrator certification is designed to validate your skills for working with Kubernetes. 

This course is designed to help you prepare for the CKA exam. It includes a combination of courses covering each exam domain, a series of labs to build hands-on Kubernetes experience working directly in a live cloud environment, and exams to test your knowledge along the way. 

Learning Objectives

The course will prepare you to understand and demonstrate your knowledge in each of the general domains of the CKA exam:

  • Application Lifecycle Management
  • Installation, Configuration, and Validation
  • Core Concepts
  • Networking
  • Scheduling
  • Security
  • Cluster Maintenance
  • Logging / Monitoring
  • Storage
  • Troubleshooting

Intended Audience

This course is intended specifically for Kubernetes cluster administrators. Anyone interested in learning how to work with Kubernetes will also benefit from this course.

Prerequisites

A solid understanding of containers, and Docker in particular, will be of value. If you are not comfortable with Docker, you are encouraged to complete the Docker in Depth course.

This course uses Kubernetes running on Linux machines. You should be comfortable working with Linux shells.

The labs in the course use virtual machines running in public clouds. Prior experience working with virtual machines in cloud environments is beneficial but not required.
