Portworx Certified Admin (PCA) is a technical education course and certification exam that teaches the core skills needed to run stateful applications on Kubernetes using the Portworx Storage Platform. Topics include overall architecture, deployment on Kubernetes, maintenance, performance, Portworx Command Line Interface (CLI), high availability, snapshots, backup and restore, security, disaster recovery, monitoring and logging, metrics, and more. This training is vital to empower your team to run stateful applications in production properly.
The training leverages Udemy.com, a global learning platform that is “connecting students all over the world to the best instructors.” Portworx partnered with one of the leading Kubernetes trainers, Mumshad Mannambeth, to deliver superior, instructor-led lectures and labs for students. Mumshad drives some of the best Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) practice and training for students wanting to pass the CKA exam, and this makes a perfect fit for KodeKloud and Portworx.
Each of these courses is aimed at the Kubernetes DevOps teams that will be admins of the container orchestration and data management platforms. Portworx Fundamentals is a free course and targets a high-level understanding of concepts, while the PCA course delivers more technical detail. Both courses have real lab environments to perfect what students have learned while also preparing them for the PCA Exam, which is available upon completion of the PCA training.
