Kubernetes & Cloud Native Training Classes

Accelerate your team Kubernetes and Cloud Native adoption with our battle-tested instructor-led training classes

With extensive experience, gathered over the past 7 years of production workloads on Kubernetes, we have enabled hundreds of Software Engineering, DevOps, SecDevOps and Platform teams in the efficient adoption of upstream OSS Cloud Native technologies.

All our workshops are fully hands-on, with live excersises and comprehensive learning material. All our trainers are certified CKA/CKAD and CKS Kubernetes Solutions Engineers with comprehensive real-world experience working with our customers.

SIGHUP is KCSP (Kubernetes Certified Service Provider), KTP (Kubernetes Training Partner) and a Cloud Native Computing Foundation member. We also maintain KFD, a fully Open Source, CNCF-certified, Kubernetes (un)distribution.

Kubernetes for Administrators Training

Prepare for CKA

Kubernetes Administrator course allows the participant to master the Kubernetes platform, from the fundamentals to the advanced implementations. The course is strongly oriented to both laboratory practice and theoretical topics required to take the exam for the official Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) certification.

Kubernetes for Application Developers Training

Prepare for CKAD

Kubernetes for App Developers course allows each participant to get the basics for the containerized applications development and deployment on Kubernetes. The course is strongly oriented to both laboratory practice and theoretical topics required to take the exam for the official Kubernetes Certified Application Developer (CKAD) certification.

Cloud Native Security Training

Prepare for CKS

Kubernetes Security Fundamentals course provides best practices for securing containerized applications and Kubernetes clusters. The course is strongly oriented to both laboratory practice and theoretical topics required to take the exam for the official Kubernetes Certified Security Specialist (CKS) certification.

Kubernetes Security Fundamentals is an Advanced Kubernetes course, therefore it is recommended that students have previously taken the Kubernetes Administration course. Registration for the CKS exam pre-requisites the CKA certification.
