The ever-increasing push to the cloud demands proven skills in areas such as cloud migration, application integration, automation, and more. The recent Open Source Jobs Report from The Linux Foundation, in fact, cited cloud technology as the most sought-after area of expertise among 70 percent of employers. Now you can demonstrate your skills through the new Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam, offered by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
This online, performance-based exam tests your ability to solve multiple issues in a hands-on, command-line environment. The CKA exam is now available for anyone to take and costs $300. To further support your path to Kubernetes certification, online training is available to help you acquire the skills needed to create and configure a real-world Kubernetes cluster. The Kubernetes Fundamentals course maps directly to the requirements for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam.
And, achieving professional certification can play a crucial role in advancing your career. According to the Open Source Jobs Report, 50 percent of hiring managers say they are more likely to hire a certified professional, and 47 percent of companies are willing to pay for employees to become open source certified.
