Certified SOA Professional

A Certified SOA Professional has completed one specialized certification, multiple specialized certifications, or has met minimum SOACP qualifications by demonstrating proficiency in fundamental service technology, Microservices and service-oriented architecture, plus one additional area.
There are two SOA Professional tracks. One is comprised of SOACP Modules 1 and 2 and the other is comprised of SOACP Modules 1 and 3. The outlines for these courses are provided in the upcoming pages. Completion of either set of courses as part of a virtual or on-site workshop results in each participant receiving an official digital Certificate of Completion, as well as a digital Training Badge from Acclaim/Credly.

Description

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

A Certified SOA Professional has a proven understanding of the fundamentals of services, microservices, APIs and service-oriented architecture, as well as common technologies and business considerations. Depending on the exam format chosen, attaining the SOA Professional Certification can require passing a single exam or multiple exams. Those who achieve this certification receive an official digital Certificate of Excellence, as well as a digital Certification Badge from Acclaim/Credly with an account that supports the online verification of certification status.
