In this video, learn what the Docker Certified Associate (DCA) certification is, where to download the exam blueprint, and what domain of the blueprint this course covers.
- [Man] This course was created to help you prepare for the Docker Certified Associate, or DCA, certification exam. You'll find all the details on that exam at the Docker Certification homepage, including the benefits of taking the exam and preparing for the exam, as well as the exam details. Additionally, if you scroll down you'll find the exam study guide. You can download the exam study guide and if we zoom in a little bit, let's scroll down and take a look at the six different domains that this exam study guide says that you need to thoroughly be aware of before attempting the Docker Certified Associate exam.
Now in this video training course, we'll specifically cover the image creation, management, and registry exam domain, which represents 20% of the DCA exam. If we scroll down and look in more detail at the image creation domain, as you can see here, it says that you need to be able to describe Docker file options, understand Docker files, give examples of Docker files, use CLI commands related to images, inspect images, understand tagging, be able to modify images into a single layer, deploy images to registries, tag images in registries, pull images and push images up to registries, as well as clean up registries or delete images from registries.
So these are the topics that we'll be covering specifically in this video training course. If you haven't yet watched my other video training courses that cover Docker installation and configuration, as well as Docker orchestration with Swarm, I encourage you to check out those courses as well because they also help you prepare for the Docker Certified Associate exam.
