Linux Foundation Kubernetes Certifications Now Include Exam Simulator

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which builds sustainable ecosystems for cloud native software, have announced that their three Kubernetes certification exams will now include access to an exam simulator, enabling those registered for an exam to experience the exam environment before actually sitting for the exam. 

Those registered for the Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA), Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD), and Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) exams will have access to two attempts, provided by Killer.sh. Each attempt grants 36 hours of access starting from the time of activation. The exam simulations include 20-25 questions similar to the ones candidates can expect to encounter on the real exam. 

The questions presented in the simulator are the same for every attempt and every user, unlike those found on the actual exams, but are graded to give candidates an idea of how they are performing. The expectation is this offering will help candidates become comfortable and familiar with the environment in which they will sit for their certification.

"We have heard from the community that it can be stressful to jump into a certification exam without knowing exactly what to expect, especially one that is performance-based and simulates real world environments and problems," said Chris Anisczcyk, CTO of CNCF. "Providing this exam simulator will ensure candidates know what to expect going into their exam, helping to ensure they are being tested on their skills without an environmental learning curve."

Anyone who registers for CKA, CKAD, or CKS beginning today will have immediate access to the simulator. Individuals who have an existing, non-expired registration for one of these exams who have not yet sat for both of their two exam attempts will receive access on a rolling basis - beginning with those who have the earliest registration expiration dates - as follows:
