Architect Certification

A blended approach consisting of self-study material, online examinations, an intensive bootcamp, and practical design tasks, this comprehensive program is designed to provide candidates a learning path to demonstrate proficiency as an EIS Suite Certified Architect.



Step 1: Prerequisites

  • Skills & Experience
  • Practical experience with Java
  • Experience with the Spring Framework
  • Previous work experience with large scale applications
  • Hands-on expertise with EIS Suite™
  • Understanding quality requirements for architecture
  • Architect experience in designing features
  • EIS University Courses
  • EIS Suite Fundamentals
  • EIS CoreVelocity™ Fundamentals
  • EIS Architecture Fundamentals
  • EIS Development Methodology Fundamentals

Step 2: Entry Exam

The online entry exam assesses the candidates’ knowledge and understanding of a variety of topics, including the program prerequisites and several additional architect core competencies.


Step 3: Bootcamp

After the successful completion of all prerequisites, candidates will then attend an EIS Suite Architect Bootcamp. This 5-day, conference-style event is an essential step on the path to certification.

EIS Group lead architects will share their knowledge and lead hands-on exercises for the certification candidates. Topics will include the principal domains of EIS Suite, design document guidelines, and practical tips and tricks useful for the architect’s role.

Participating in this bootcamp will give you direct access to cases and practical experience in technologies EIS Group uses on a daily basis—or intends to adopt in the future. While attending, you will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other certification candidates and network with EIS Group architects.


Step 4: Readiness Exam

After completing the bootcamp, your next step is to complete the readiness exam. This is a comprehensive online assessment and is comprised of topics relating to the prerequisite skills, training, and content covered during the EIS Suite Architect Bootcamp.


Step 5: Mentorship

During this 3-month mentorship period, candidates will have access to an experienced senior architect. With regularly scheduled mentoring sessions, senior architects can provide guidance with current assignments, design tasks, and implementation alternatives.


Step 6: Certification

To finalize the process, each candidate will submit design samples as outlined at the end of the architect bootcamp. These designs will then be reviewed and assessed by a senior EIS Group Architect based on a predefined matrix of design standards criteria.

After all program components have been successfully completed, the candidate will be awarded the EIS Suite Architect Certification1.
