Become a Portworx Certified Admin

We’re happy to announce the availability of the Portworx Certified Admin (PCA) online training and exam. This course is in addition to the free online Portworx Fundamentals course, which was made available during KubeCon in San Diego last year. This certified admin training is technical and Kubernetes-focused while giving students a deeper look into the advanced concepts of persistent storage and data management with Portworx’s cloud-native storage platform. The training leverages Udemy, a global learning platform that is “connecting students all over the world to the best instructors.” Portworx partnered with Mumshad Mannambeth of KodeKloud 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 to deliver first-rate training for the industry-leading storage platform for Kubernetes.

Hi Ryan…so the exam has 2 opportunities only?
In the worst case scenario, what would happen if the 2 chances were burn?

Hi Gerardo.

Yes there are 2 opportunities to pass.

You can take any time needed to take your first attempt. You then have 30 days from the date of the first attempt to complete the second attempt.

If you do not pass both attempts, you can work with our team to take the exam again if you wish. We will likely give you feedback on which topics and questions were not passed to help you prepare. A re-certification fee may be needed in order to take the exam again. You can email us as if you do not pass either attempt for next steps.

How can i book for the PCA exam ?
is that the PCA course include the exam voucher or we have to purchase it separately ?

When you purchase the PCA course, it includes access to the exam. No need for any extra purchase.

Sign up whenever you are ready after taking the course content. The details for signing up for the exam are within the last section of the PCA course.

Thank you so much Ryan
