Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) Course Overview

Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) Course Overview

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) course is designed for individuals who want to demonstrate their skills in designing, building, configuring, and exposing cloud-native applications for Kubernetes. The course goes through a series of modules that cover all aspects needed to become proficient in working with Kubernetes, including core concepts, configuration, multi-container pods, observability, pod design, services & networking, and state persistence.

Throughout the course, students gain hands-on experience with Kubernetes security training, learning to secure pods and clusters. They also acquire the competencies expected from a Kubernetes administrator training, such as managing applications using Kubernetes primitives and ensuring their applications are properly orchestrated and maintained.

By the end of the course, learners will have a solid understanding of how to work with Kubernetes in a practical way, which will help them in developing, deploying, and maintaining scalable and highly-available applications on the Kubernetes platform.
