Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) – exam preparation Training Course


The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) program has been developed by The Linux Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the host of Kubernetes.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at Developers who wish to confirm their skills in design, build, configure, and expose cloud native applications for Kubernetes.

On the other hand, training is also focused on gaining practical experience in Kubernetes application development, so we recommend taking part in it, even if you don’t intend to take CKAD exam.
