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.

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.


You can take exams anywhere in the world via Pearson VUE testing centers, Pearson VUE online proctoring and Arcitura on-site exam proctoring at your location.

You are provided with three flexible exam format options:

  • Complete the exams for SOACP Modules 1 and 2 or SOACP Modules 1 and 3.
  • Complete the combined Exam S90.STP.
  • Achieve any other SOACP certification. (The SOA Professional accreditation is automatically issued upon obtaining any one of the other SOACP certifications because they all encompass Modules 1 and 2 or Modules 1 and 3.)

Note also that the above exam requirements are in effect as of October 27, 2018 after which this certification is also available in an honors designation for those that pass both required exams with grades 10 percentage points higher than the passing grades.
