The CKA exam allows users to demonstrate their competence in a hands-on, command-line environment. The purpose of the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) program is to provide assurance that CKAs have the skills, knowledge, and competency to perform the responsibilities of Kubernetes administrators. It is an online, proctored, performance-based test that requires solving multiple issues from a command line.

With the majority of container-related job listings asking for proficiency in Kubernetes as an orchestration platform, the CKA program expands the pool of Kubernetes experts in the market, thereby enabling continued growth across the broad set of organizations using the technology.
