Learning Path Overview
Specifically designed to help you prepare for the Docker Certified Associate (DCA) Certification, this preview Learning Path provides interactive content comprised of hands-on labs and video courses. This training content has been carefully created to help you study for this Docker certification.
The aim of the certification is to validate your knowledge across a number of different domains, which have been defined by Docker as being able to:
- Run containerized applications from pre-existing images stored in a centralized registry
- Deploy images across the cluster
- Triage and resolve issue reports from stakeholders
- Standup up on Enterprise clusters with one UCP manager, one DTR replica, and one worker node
- Migrate traditional applications to containers
- Configure and troubleshoot Docker engine
- Perform general maintenance and configuration
As a means of demonstrating this knowledge, you will be tested across 6 different domains, with each domain contributing to a total percentage of your overall score. These domains are broken down as:
- Domain 1: Orchestration (25% of exam)
- Domain 2: Image Creation, Management, and Registry (20% of exam)
- Domain 3: Installation and Configuration (15% of exam)
- Domain 4: Networking (15% of exam)
- Domain 5: Security (15% of exam)
- Domain 6: Storage and Volumes (10% of exam)
This learning path is suitable for those wanting to pass the Docker Certified Associate (DCA) certification exam.
There are no prerequisites for this learning path. However, before taking the actual Docker Certified Associate (DCA) exam Docker recommends at least six months to one year of experience with Docker, including exposure to the Docker Enterprise Edition. The knowledge, skills and experience required at this level should also include:
