Become a Certified Kubernetes Expert in less than 3 months!
How to become a Certified Kubernetes Expert in less than 3 months from knowing absolutely nothing and having zero experience, to gaining enough knowledge and hands-on experience and clearing 2 Kubernetes certifications (CKA & CKAD).
So why Kubernetes and what's all the fuss about it?
Kubernetes is one of the highest trending technology in Cloud Computing as of today. Kubernetes had the fastest growth in job searches, over a 173% from a year before as reported recently by a survey conducted by Indeed.
The adoption of Kubernetes as the Go-To platform for hosting production grade applications is ever increasing. Big brands like The New York Times, HBO, Reddit, AirBnB, Pinterest, Pokemon - all have their own Kubernetes stories to tell. And many more are on their way to join them.
When I first heard about Kubernetes and Container Orchestration, I had no idea what it was. I searched around for material that could help me understand it and found a ton of articles, blogs and youtube videos. But none of them really gave me the whole picture.
They were always missing something. Either a lecture on a pre-requisite topic or didn't explain the whole concept. I then had to go find other material to learn some of the basics. And none of them really gave me any hands-on exposure.
I struggled to setup my own labs. But the labs were for specific cloud platforms, either GCP, AWS or Azure. I wanted to setup a small home lab to practice on, that I can power up anytime, practice and shut it down. And not worry about being charged.
Some of the advanced topics like security, certificates, networking and storage required me to have sufficient background knowledge on each of them. And I didn't have any. So it took me a lot of time to learn the pre-requisites and master concepts in Kubernetes and clear certifications.
I knew there were many others struggling with similar issues. A lot of my students from my previous courses reached out to me reporting. They had these myths:
# Myth 1: You must have years of experience to become a Certified Kubernetes Administrator.
Most people think that it would take them years to become a certified Kubernetes administrator. Well, that's not true. The Kubernetes Certifications test your knowledge on the basics. You need to know the basic concepts of the architecture, setting up a cluster, deploying an application and configuring security, networking and storage. Our students have proved that all of these can be learned within 1 month!
# Myth 2: But I've heard Kubernetes is so hard and complex to learn.
Well, it could be hard if you don't have sufficient pre-requisite knowledge. For example, if you don't know the basics of certificates and authentication, then security related topics could be hard. If you don't know basics of networking in Linux, then the networking concepts may be hard to understand. Bu If you get your basics right first, you can easily relate those to Kubernetes concepts. And that's the key!
# Myth 3: I have no hands-on experience or access to any cloud providers for labs
You don't need access to any cloud providers. You can setup a local lab on your home laptop and that is sufficient to practice for the certifications. But wait, what if we have a better solution for you? Read on!
So I had to fix these problems myself. Which is why I decided to create THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE TRAINING ON KUBERNETES there is (say's not me, but my students. Checkout the reviews below). One that explains everything you need to know from the absolute basics to the underlying concepts in depth. With sufficient practice to help you clear those exams.
The Kubernetes Absolute Beginners to Certified Expert is a bundle of three courses, that take you from the absolute basics to helping you clear 2 certifications.
Here's what you will learn in this course:
The contents of this course are aligned to match the Kubernetes Certification Curriculums.

"Passed CKA. Very good course. I had zero experience in Kubernetes one month ago. Just bought this course and practice until I was comfortable to doing all task without any hint."
"I happened to hit your site by chance. Usually it is Udemy, Udacity or Coursera that we hit first. But I can bet that this is by far the best and most comprehensive."
"I'd like to say very warm thank you to @Mumshad Mannambeth - your CKAD course was the best learning material in terms of k8s I've seen. I can easily say that it has helped me a lot to get on fast track to k8s understanding and use. I did some other preparations (including going through entire kubernetes.io/docs/concepts) but I wouldn't be able to achieve both CKAD and CKA without this course within such a short time so once again, THANK YOU."
"Exam nailed! @Mumshad Mannambeth you're a legend! My experience was almost entirely with docker only until taking your course so this is almost 100% because of you! Straight to the point, covers the necessary to take the exam with some additional practice. Very good course and very good teacher. Top notch!"
"The course is awesome. I have completed my CKA exam with 84%. This course helped me with the practice required and covered all the topics required for the CKA exam. I truly recommend this course to all my friends and it's one stop shop for CKA aspirants. Thanks again..Looking forward to other courses from you... :)!"
"Enjoying this course. I like the katacoda style practice labs included. **UPDATE** Passed the cert, primarily using this course and a bunch of exercises. I've been recommending this to anyone who has shown interest in k8s. If that sounds like you then this is the course you're looking for.!"
"Mumshad is an amazing and gifted trainer. The course structure incorporates a very good balance of theory and practice exercises that help drill in and ingrain the concepts before moving to the next portion of the lessons. I took his CKAD course and was eagerly waiting for the CKA course. Needless to say this course was exceptional as well. The coverage on TLS, RBAC, networking is missing on most other courses offered in udemy. Thoroughly enjoyed the troubleshooting sections and my request is to add more exercises to this section. I strongly recommend this course for anyone administering kubernetes .!"
"This is just awesome. The way he has chosen to explain things through animation is just fantastic. The instructor has deep knowledge about the course. I would highly recommend this to all the students. Good Job !! :) .!"
"I have compared this to other courses at Udemy and Linux Academy. All have the strengths and gaps, so far this is a winner!"
I have been following your DevOps course. I have attended an interview (just with the knowledge of your courses) and happy to inform you that I got the job.
Passed CKA. Thanks @Mumshad Mannambeth and team. Very good course. I had zero experience in Kubernetes one month ago. Just bought this course and practice until I was comfortable to doing all task without any hint.
I cleared my CKAD exam. I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for you for creating the BESTEST course. Your explanation is next level anyone without any background can understand your lectures.
Finally passed my CKAD exam score i gt was 72. Course is very well designed and presented. There is a practical hand on exercises after each topic! Thank you mumshad for all your support!
