LEARNING PATH

Containers

After completing the Containers path you’ll have the core hands-on knowledge and skills to build, secure and manage containers on multiple platforms. You’ll start by learning the basics of what Containers and how to manage them (orchestration). From there you’ll build practical knowledge with Kubernetes and work towards your first certification. You’ll take your Container game to the next level by going deeper with Kubernetes as you prepare for both Cloud Native certification exams. To crown it off, you’ll learn specialised platform-specific skills like networking with AWS, Google Kubernetes Engine and monitoring with Prometheus.Whether you're a total beginner or looking to take your Linux Container skills to the next level, these flexible paths let you skip what you know and start at the appropriate lesson. The learning paths also have a major focus on practical learning using hands-on labs, like all of ACG's learning.

Not sure where to start? We’ll guide you through the exact skills you need to gain to progress from novice to guru across a variety of cloud specialties.

These paths are flexible, so you can hop in where you’re comfortable and start at the appropriate level, whether you’re a total novice or looking to take your skills to the next level. And as with all ACG learning, there’s a major focus on gaining practical experience through Hands-on Labs.
