After much anticipation, the long-awaited Prometheus Certified Associate (PCA) exam went live on our learning platform in September and is currently available for general enrollment.
The result of a partnership between the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), The Linux Foundation Training & Certification, and Certiverse – the PCA invites candidates to demonstrate their foundational knowledge of best practices for monitoring cloud native applications and infrastructure using Prometheus. It also aims to prepare candidates to work with the fundamentals of data monitoring, metrics, alerts, and dashboards using Prometheus.
According to CNCF’s 2021 Cloud Native Survey, the use of Prometheus in production has reached 65%, an increase of 43% year-over-year. “We have seen significant interest in Prometheus over the past several months of beta testing and we’re excited to now offer the certification to the general public,” said Clyde Seepersad, SVP, and general manager of training & certification at The Linux Foundation.
The PCA is an online, proctored, multiple-choice exam. For technologists new to Prometheus, the Monitoring Systems and Services with Prometheus training course can be helpful to learn many of Prometheus’ major features, best practices, and use cases. There are also organizations offering relevant training on the Prometheus support and training site.
