Hey Caio


Thanks for the information.

In the meantime I have received a confirmation from Linux Foundation that new Candidate Handbook has been released (CKA Candidate Handbook v1.4)  and it stays:

The following resources are forbidden during the exam:

  • Documentation (other than Kubernetes technical documentation)

I have been told that using official docs and templates IS ALLOWED.


Thanks again

Hey Team

prior exposure to the exam content and for the purpose of providing specific assistance

to a candidate taking the CKA exam.”

Could you please clarify if I can or can’t use all the technical documentation from

Can I use examples of manifests presented on page?
