Getting CKAD Certified with RX-M

RX-M offers two ways to get the Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) certification. Our CKAD certified trainers can deliver the boot camp and proctor the exam for your team privately, on-site at your organization, or just enroll in one of our public CKAD boot camps.

The Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) program was created by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), in collaboration with The Linux Foundation (LF), to help develop the Kubernetes ecosystem.

RX-M is a Linux Foundation Authorized Training Partner (ATP), part of the founding class of Kubernetes Certified Service Providers (KCSP) and Kubernetes Training Partners (KTP), and a charter member of the CNCF. We are uniquely positioned as unbiased & market neutral.
