Why you need Kubernetes training

Maro Aziz, Global Head of Training - October 18, 2022

Kubernetes is increasingly becoming the platform of choice for running and deploying cloud native applications. For developers, Kubernetes enables you to be more productive with rapid development and scaling.  Sounds good, right? The challenge is that Kubernetes can be a complex beast and there is a steep learning curve, one that can lead to frustration and slow you down. Even if you know some of the Kubernetes basics, the complexity requires continuous learning in order to be successful.

Consider these numbers:

  • 57% of cloud developers say a top challenge of using Kubernetes is its steep learning curve

  • The industry has seen a 455% year-over-year increase in demand for Kubernetes certification

  • 46% of hiring managers are looking for cloud and container skill sets

Elevate your Kubernetes skills


You can gain the confidence to navigate the complexity of Kubernetes by learning from Mirantis experts. As the industry leaders in container technology, Mirantis provides access to real world content that leverages our extensive experience delivering cloud technologies in production, at scale.

If you are looking to be a platform-agnostic Kubernetes guru, we’ve got you covered! We put you at the center of everything we do.  Based on feedback from developers, operators and DevOps professionals  like yourself, we know that you learn best by doing, so we include our interactive, hands-on lab environment in all our learning experiences.  The integration of our real-world labs is unique, it’s not a simulated environment. You will use real commands that build on a cloud project, built on a real infrastructure, providing you with a dynamic experience. 

Why train with Mirantis?

Mirantis training embraces fun and interactive learning through gamification. Our innovative on-demand platform utilizes advanced learning technologies for an engaging experience. 

Our Kubernetes Bootcamps are Kubernetes distribution agnostic so you can leverage what you learn during this training in any environment. 

What's more, we know you are busy!  We offer a variety of ways to learn that fits your schedule:

• Private Training

• Public Classes

• On-Demand

• Training Subscription

After completing any of our classes or bootcamps, you will earn a Mirantis badge to show off your Kubernetes expertise. While we don’t give away superhero capes, it might feel like you have superhero capabilities when you are done training with Mirantis. 

We're proud to get comments like this one, from a DevOps Engineer at a major Investment Management Organization:

“CN 252 is an excellent course for the advanced application developer who wants to learn containerized application development.”
