About Course

Erudition’s CKA Training course is designed in reference with CNCF’s Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam. This course will give you an in-depth understanding of various aspects of the Exam such as Kubernetes Core Concepts, Kubernetes Networking, Pod Scheduling, Logging, Monitoring, Cluster Security, and Troubleshooting. The course also provides you with a set of MCQs, demos, and an Exam-level Industry-grade project, which will help you prepare for the CKA Exam.

Why learn Kubernetes?

Docker revolutionized the IT industry with the introduction of their Portable Lightweight Container Engine. More than 30% of the organizations in the IT industry have already adopted Docker, and the adoption rate is increasing by 40% every year. Over 50% of these environments are orchestrated.

Kubernetes is the biggest player in the Container Orchestration world. Tools such as Docker Swarm and Mesos, which have been competitors of Kubernetes in the Container Orchestration market, have added support for Kubernetes within their ecosystems.
