Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) 2021:
Upcoming Program Changes
Coming September 28, 2021 00:00 UTC
Any CKAD exam reservation that occurs after 00:00 UTC on September 28, 2021, including free retakes, will test on the new set of Domains and Competencies (listed below).
It does not matter if the reservation happens to be for a first attempt or a free retake, nor does it matter on what date you made the exam purchase; it only matters on what date you sit for the exam.
The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) can design, build and deploy cloud-native applications for Kubernetes.
A CKAD can define application resources and use Kubernetes core primitives to create/migrate, configure, expose and observe scalable applications. The exam assumes working knowledge of container runtimes and microservice architecture.
The successful candidate will be comfortable:
– working with (OCI-compliant) container images
– applying Cloud Native application concepts and architectures
– working with and validating Kubernetes resource definitions
