Kubernetes (CKA) + Docker

Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) + Docker Essentials

The purpose of the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) certification is to provide assurance that certification holders have the skills, knowledge and competency to perform the responsibilities of Kubernetes Administrators.

To achieve certification, a candidate will need to pass a performance-based exam that tests their Kubernetes Administrator skills. Certification is issued upon a candidate passing the required exam. The CKA Certifications focus on the skills required to be a successful Kubernetes Administrator in industry today.

As a Kubernetes  training center in Sri Lanka , Our goal is to create individuals with sound knowledge in Kubernetes and Docker, We are already recognized as the First training center in Sri Lanka to provide Kubernetes training.
