Linux Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) 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.
Anyone who registers for CKA, CKAD, or CKS will have immediate access to the simulator. Those with an existing, unexpired exam registration will also receive access to the simulator over the coming weeks.
