Open Source Curriculum for CNCF Certification Courses

This is the the latest version of the curriculum for the following CNCF exams:

  • Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA)
  • Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD)
  • Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS)

If you see any errors with the document, please open an issue here. The document major and minor version (e.g., the 1 and 8 in 1.8.0) match the version of Kubernetes. The patch version (e.g., the 0 in 1.8.0) represents any iterations in the documentation for that version of Kubernetes. Old versions remain available.

CNCF encourages training companies to align their offerings to cover the contents of the curriculum. Training partners can purchase coupons for the CKA exam at a wholesale price to offer at the end of their training.

The Curriculum is available under the CC-BY 4.0+ License.
