Here's a link to the Udemy course for CKA, by Mumshad M of KodeKloud. It's often on sale for less than $20.

Maybe look at this course:
After completing you can pass CKA exam :-)

Well shit, no excuses now.
Time to take the plunge I guess.
For anyone that's planning on doing this, there's this[ udemy course that keeps popping up and recommended by everyone.] (https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/). It comes with practical labs lessons that are done on kode kloud.
- I've heard really bad things about linux academy as of late (past 2020)
- killer shell is a really good resource that simulates the exam and has questions that are supposedly harder than the exam. There's a link to it when you sign up for the exam
- Some people have said doing linux the hard way is overkill, others have said it's necessary, so idk.
- Also don't forget you get one free retry with each exam purchase

First I recommend that you pace yourself. When you try to rush and learn new things you end up forgetting most of what you learned. Also the pressure of feeling like you have to ramp up might impact your ability to focus and learn. Try to come up with a plan where you break down topics or items you want to cover every day. You will be up to speed in no time.
From what you described it sounds like you are supporting a Kubernetes environment from an infrastructure/platform perspective. I would recommend first learning about how Kubernetes works behind the scenes (API,kubelet,controller,etc) and all the primitives(pods,services,deployments). There is this really good course on Udemy, it helps you prepare for the CKA. No need to go for the CKA but the course covers all of the topics that I discussed above and everything you would need to administer a cluster . Lessons are covered really well and it comes with a lab environment included to do practice exercises(no extra cost!). CKA Course
I also recommend you to check out David McKay (Rawkode Academy) on YouTube. He does these segments called Klustered where he and a guest troubleshoot broken Kubernetes clusters. Lot of interesting bits of information and useful troubleshooting techniques.
Hope that helps. Best of luck.

The perfect mixture of Labs and lectures. When you buy into this course you will also get access to a cloud service where you can do Labs that will accually check that you have done everything right. This will also make you ready to get certified om Kubernetes. One of the best courses i've ever done.

Honestly it takes a chunk of time to really understand K8s in depth. If its always going to be hosted you can get away with less.
If you can spare some time each day, Mumshads course is worth buying even if you don't watch the whole thing I like the way he explains it

I assume you mean the CKA exam. I took it. I recommend the Udemy CKA prep course https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
I only used that to study and easily passed it. It is on sale now for $12 I think.
Edit: I forgot to mention the course includes labs. You don’t need to setup your own lab. You can do the labs as many times as you want also.

I started with Linux Academy too, but didn't really find it engaging - found this course https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/ recommended a lot, and I can see why after using it. The training is better IMO, but what really makes it stand out are the labs - far more challenging than the LA ones, and they really get you ready for the exam, and for using k8s professionally. Honestly the best online course I've ever taken.

ciao a tutti, sono un sysadmin con 25 anni di esperienza in grossa parte windows, vmware, reti,ecc... lavoro per un msp e da qualche tempo sono passato nella divisione linux/devops. conosco linux in modo basico, mi so muovere ma con lentezza e poco metodo. per k8s sto gia seguendo il corso udemy kca https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/ ed e' grandioso! cerco un corso online simile ben strutturato che possa colmare le mie lacune ed aiutarmi a mettermi al passo su linux, magari rhca ma non necessariamente, l importante e' che abbia buona teoria ma tanta pratica/lab.

Unfortunately, the linked Udemy course is $139.99 for existing Udemy subscribers and $19.99 for new accounts/new subscribers.
This incentivizes people to create fake accounts to try to get the discount, instead of rewarding existing members for their continued support of Udemy, with a discount.

Been working through the Udemy CKA course (https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests) and practice tests. The practice tests really highlight what sections I didn't remember and had to study again. Now they are ingrained and I can run through the practice tests and get 100%, knowing where in the docs to look for the parts I need. I am feeling ready for test round 1!

I'm going through a pretty thorough udemy course for it.
I also have minikube set up at home to practice.

I would suggest this one but I haven't tried it myself udemy
I used an other of his course for CKAD and it was really helpful, because each course come with a lab and you have access to an environment for the lab.

I like udemy - you typically get a really good course, and I'm sure this is because the instructors are in direct competition and work hard to outperform each other.
I bought this course for my CKA and it also came with a bunch of practical tests on katacoda, and went above an beyond the CKA in a few important ways.

If you are looking for a self paced online course, there are several good courses on Udemy like https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
If you are looking for an instructor led training, which gives you the possibility to ask questions and learn directly from an experienced Kubernetes professional in a small group, have a look at: https://atix.de/training/kubernetes-training/

This class is amazing, lots of hands on and have a very marketable cert afterwards.

I'm currently training for a cert and watching/doing this, its pretty good and has a hands on labs for every section: https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
Other than this, as others, I would recommend LinuxAcademy(now Cloudguru) courses.

The course I am planning on taking soon as I finish another course I am doing for an AWS cert is this one on Udemy. You can get a 'sale' price if you wait a week or two. They are always on 'sale' so don't be a sucker and buy it at 'full price'

I am also taking this course, so that I can attain my CKA
but I cut my teeth on Katacoda

Almost everyone suggests these. Mumshad Mannambeth does a great job of explaining things and you have access to a lot of labs to practice.

The whole point of this is to blindly follow it but pay attention to what you're doing so when you go and do the amazing CKA course on Udemy by Mumshad - https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
You start to understand all the things that you did during the K8s the hard way better. -If you really want to learn there's no harm in doing both of these courses, K8s the hard way can be done in 2 hours and 3 beers.
Good luck with your K8s study!

I'm not sure about that one, but this one: https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/ was recently updated (last couple of weeks) to accommodate the test changes. It was on sale for \~$10 a week ago.

So I went to find some of the ones I took, so I could post my recommendations, and it turns out they were all for niche things after I had kind of learned the ins and outs. (Like for example an Istio course.) So my advice for finding one is to just google and read forums and reviews and see which ones people think were good. I'm currently taking a CKA course which is decent, and the guy who runs that also runs a beginner's course, but that might be too easy/beginner for you, since you seem to know the basics at least and are more at an intermediate level.
One generalized course I took and can recommend is this one but my issue with it is that it uses AWS for node hosting and it mixes a lot of AWS-specific things with general K8s stuff, so if you're not very familiar with AWS and K8s already, sometimes it can be confusing. But if you've used AWS and know K8s a bit already like you do, you probably won't have the same trouble I did differentiating between the AWS stuff and the K8s parts. Other than mixing AWS and K8s it was a good course. But again, I'm not sure if it would be beneficial to you. It's more hands-on of managing stuff, and I feel like you want more of an in-depth guide to the K8s resources (e.g. services vs deployments vs replicasets), and this course doesn't really go in depth into all that.
So I guess I'm back to recommending just googling and researching what courses others recommend. I'm sorry for saying "go look at udemy" and then not having a good suggestion for you.

Mumshad Mannambeth’s courses on Udemy for CKAD and CKA preparation have been very useful. This is the CKAD course. https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-application-developer/. It's probably the most useful. There's also the CKA one: https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/. With a lot of k8s in the cloud, most of the details in CKA aren't as relevant since it's cloud managed, but still interesting.
Also: kind, it's a way to run local k8s clusters in docker and is really lightweight and fun. It's good to test out concepts or just play around in k8s https://kind.sigs.k8s.io/

at first i did a quick start: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X48VuDVv0do
Then i tried to run a minecraft-server on K8s
then i did this course and tests multiple times: https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
for additional training: killer.sh
But i have to say i worked before as a system engeinner and and i know the basiscs of certs, firewall and network. But Kubernetes was new to me.

Hardware required - half decent laptop.
Assuming enough understanding of linux and networking fundamentals
Sufficient docker is covered in this course https://www.linkedin.com/learning/learning-docker-2 (about a day's work)
Run a few containers, run an application that is split into multiple containers, even following an example of lets say bringing up an ELK stack is good enough (reason I say ELK is because it generally just works out of the box without much head banging).
Still on laptop, setup minikube and start working through this course https://www.udemy.com/course/certified-kubernetes-administrator-with-practice-tests/
\^ that's at least a day job week to go through thoroughly.
Once through with all that, get access to 3 machines, VMs, EC2, $50 x86 based laptops doesn't matter (don't do Raspberry pis because some of the things are painful to get working on ARM, it's improving but not there yet). A flat network config without any ACLs will help a lot.
Setup a cluster following this https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/production-environment/tools/kubeadm/create-cluster-kubeadm/
At this point you will know enough to be dangerous, now what do you want to do? Run it in prod, get a cert, there are routes to follow.
