Cilium Certified Associate (CCA)

The Cilium Certified Associate (CCA) exam confirms a user’s knowledge of connecting, securing, and observing Kubernetes clusters using Cilium.

The CCA is an entry-level certification designed for platform or cloud engineers interested in networking, security, and observability. Those who have achieved Linux Foundation Kubernetes and Cloud Native Associate (KCNA) certification, Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) certification, or Certified Kubernetes Application Developer (CKAD) certification are ideal candidates. 

IT professionals with Kubernetes and cloud-native skills are expected to be in high demand for at least another decade. Those who earn their CCA certification will stand out to employers.

A certified CCA will confirm foundational knowledge for connecting, securing, and observing Kubernetes clusters using Cilium. The CCA exam is intended to prepare candidates looking at deploying Cilium in their environment. The CCA demonstrates a candidate’s understanding of the major features, benefits, and use cases offered by Cilium.

The CCA certification was built in collaboration with Isovalent, the company founded by the creators of the Cilium Project.
