SAN FRANCISCO, June 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Linux Foundation, the non-profit organization that enables mass innovation through open source, and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®), which builds sustainable ecosystems for native cloud software, have announced that now its three Kubernetes certification exams include access to an exam simulator, which allows registered participants in an exam to experience the exam environment before taking the exam.
Entrants to the Kubernetes Certified Administrator (CKA) exams, the Kubernetes Certified Application Developer (CKAD) and the Kubernetes Certified Security Specialist (CKS) will have access to two attempts, provided by Killer.sh. Each attempt grants 36 hours of access from the time of activation. Exam simulations include 20-25 questions similar to what candidates can expect to find in the actual exam.
The questions presented in the simulator are the same for each attempt and for each user, unlike the meetings in the actual exams, but are classified to give candidates an idea of their performance. The hope is that this offer will help candidates feel comfortable and familiar with the environment in which they will sit to obtain their certification.
“We’ve heard from the community that it can be stressful to go for a certification exam without knowing exactly what to expect, especially one that is performance-based and simulates real-world environments and issues,” said Chris Anisczcyk, technical director of CNCF. “Providing this exam simulator will ensure that candidates know what to expect for the exam, helping to ensure that their skills are tested without an environmental learning curve.”
Anyone who registers on CKA, CKAD or CKS from today will have immediate access to the simulator. People who have not expired registration in one of these exams who have not yet taken the two exam attempts will receive continuous access (starting with those who have the first registration expiration dates) of the next way:
