We show you the theory

Our KBS-505 Kubernetes course covers the theoretical knowledge required to successfully deploy, manage and automate containerized applications in Kubernetes, as well as the advanced concepts necessary to understand Istio and helm.

We don’t only teach you what to do and how but also why.

Use our labs for practice

Theoretical knowledge is all well and good, but you also need practical experience to master Kubernetes.

That’s why 50% of our course is hands-on exercises.

You can use our lab environment to learn Kubernetes, Helm & Istio in practice during the training and even thereafter.

Prepare for the CKA & CKAD exams

Our training was designed from the ground up to comply with the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam.

We participated in the CKA exam beta while developing our course and are continuously updating it to match the exam.

Our instructors are Certified Kubernetes Administrators. We also modified our course to prepare you for the recently announced CKAD (Certified Kubernetes Application Developer) exam as well.

This is what our participants have to say

The instructor showed excellent knowledge of Kubernetes, and answered all questions.

I would recommend to all IT colleagues because k8s is the future.

Overall a very good course. Most enjoyable and easy to recommend.
