Learning Kubernetes (k8s) is valuable due to its powerful role in the contemporary landscape of technology and software development. As a leading platform for container orchestration, Kubernetes simplifies the deployment, scaling, and management of applications across distributed networks. By leveraging Kubernetes, businesses and developers can manage complex application infrastructures with greater efficiency and reliability, leading to improved productivity and cost savings. Additionally, as cloud-native applications and microservices continue to rise in prevalence, skills in Kubernetes are becoming increasingly sought-after in the job market. As such, learning Kubernetes not only equips you with the ability to build resilient systems but also enhances your professional value in the technology industry.

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) program is an esteemed certification that demonstrates one's competence in designing, building, configuring, and exposing cloud-native applications for Kubernetes. Pursuing the CKAD certification enables developers to deepen their understanding of the Kubernetes environment and learn how to efficiently deploy and maintain applications on it. Do not be afraid, the certification and this course do have the word 'Developer' in it, but in the exam you are not going to be asked to develop a program and deploy it in K8S. This is more about how to deploy an application in K8S in a K8S / Cloud Native way. This includes mastering practical skills such as understanding Kubernetes core concepts, working with Kubernetes APIs, and managing application state and security. A better title would have been the Certified Kubernetes Application Deployment course, but to avoid confusuon we go with the upstream CNCF nomenclature. This knowledge is vital in the growing field of cloud-native applications and microservices architecture. Acquiring the CKAD certification signals to potential employers your practical expertise, making you more competitive in the job market and potentially increasing your career prospects and earning potential.


What you will learn:

Goal of this course is to learn you various  aspects of developing, deploying, and maintaining applications on Kubernetes.

  • Core Concepts: Understanding Kubernetes architecture and components, as well as essential Kubernetes objects like pods, services, and deployments.
  • Configuration: You'll learn how to configure applications for Kubernetes, including creating and managing ConfigMaps and Secrets, understanding service accounts, and configuring network policies.
  • Multi-Container Pods: The course covers how to design and implement multi-container pods using patterns like sidecar, adapter, and ambassador.
  • Observability: This includes how to monitor applications using logs and Kubernetes probes (liveness, readiness, and startup probes).
  • Pod Design: You'll learn about labels, selectors, and annotations, and how to use them for organizing resources. You'll also learn about deployments, rolling updates, and rollbacks. 
  • Services & Networking: This includes understanding how to expose applications using services and Ingress, and how to use NetworkPolicies for controlling access to pods.
  • State Persistence: You'll learn how to configure applications with persistent storage using PersistentVolumes and PersistentVolumeClaims.


This Course Provides:

  • On-site live training
  • multiple in lab projects
  • multiple real life cases & slides


Who is this course for:

This training has been developed for people that want to learn K8S from the application developer or application maintainer point of view. Focus on this course is on deploying and maintaining application on K8S. This includes deploying, connectivity, upgrading, troubleshooting, scaling, resource assignment, monitoring and troubleshooting.


  • DevOps Beginners & Intermediate Level Engineers
  • Beginners in Orchestration & Cloud Technology
  • System Administrators
  • DevOps Professionals
  • Application Developers


Course Requirements

  • Previous knowledge of K8S is not needed. Prior knowledge about containerization is a pro. In the first hours of the training we will cover a deep dive into containerization principles. Having experience with developing applications or maintaining application on a Linux platform is pro.
  • Experience with the Linux OS and the Linux commandline interface is recommended.


Upon request of many of our customers we can (and have) delivere(d) this course also fully customized to the customer's needs and environment. We can also offer this course in a 5d boot-camp form and we have the option to combina both CKA and CKAD courses in one single K8S all-in course. Please enquire for more information.



This extraordinary training is currently exclusively available via our class-room, live online or on-site experience.
