Arcitura curricula and certifications are held to the highest standards.

Emphasis is always placed on ensuring absolute vendor-neutrality while producing educational materials and accreditation in alignment with the current IT industry.

Arcitura courses are known for addressing progressive, cutting-edge topics within the IT industry, while limiting course content and exam requirements to those topic areas that are sufficiently mature and proven, both in technology and practice. Arcitura is constantly committed to achieving and retaining this balance, which can result in courses undergoing periodic reviews and revisions in order to stay current with relevant industry developments.

Arcitura Education Inc. was established as a sister organization to SOA Systems Inc., an organization founded in 1998 by best-selling author Thomas Erl who remains the President and CEO of both organizations. Thomas is a recognized IT thought leader and maintains his status as Series Editor of the Prentice Hall Service Technology Series from Thomas Erl. SOA Systems Inc. was originally responsible for the delivery of the widely successful SOA Certified Professional (SOACP) program. With the emergence of the Cloud Certified Professional (CCP) program in 2011 and the Big Data Science Certified Professional (BDSCP) program in 2014, Arcitura Education became the official parent organization, paving the way for the release of additional accreditation programs in the future.

The Cloud Certified Professional (CCP) program encompasses 21 course modules, 21 exams and 8 industry certifications, dedicated to specialized areas of cloud computing, cloud architecture and industry standard cloud technologies.

The SOA Certified Professional (SOACP) Program is a curriculum that was originally established in the mid-2000’s. It evolved into a program comprised of 23 course modules, 23 exams, and 9 industry certifications, each of which addresses a specific proficiency associated with service-oriented architecture (SOA), service-orientation, and service technologies.

The highly modularized format of each curriculum allows it to be adapted to various types of training requirements.
