FAQs

Are these CPSA training courses accredited?

Yes. We are an accredited iSAQB® training provider, which is why all iSAQB® CPSA Foundation Level & Advanced Level training courses offered by tectrain Academy are accredited. You can find an overview of our Advanced Level training courses here.

Is tectrain an accredited training provider?

Yes, we are an accredited iSAQB® training provider.

What is the difference between examination and training providers (training providers)?

The iSAQB stipulates the formal and organizational separation between training and examination providers. That's why there are two roles. The training providers offer courses, workshops and training courses to prepare the participants, for example, for the CPSA-F exam or for the CPSA-A thesis. The exam providers conduct the CPSA-A and CPSA-F exams – however, they are not allowed to offer any courses or training in this area themselves.

Can I call myself a software architect after passing the iSAQB CPSA ® Exams?

In Germany it is unclear whether one can legally call oneself a software architect. We advise you to research job title laws in your country. The iSAQB cannot issue a professional title. Therefore, we suggest that you call yourself "Certified Professional for Software Architecture by the iSAQB" after passing the exam.

The CPSA program (Certified Professional for Software Architecture) is the advanced training program that is certified by the iSAQB®. This training is for all people who work on solutions for IT projects. The area of ​​software architecture has emerged as an important discipline in software development, especially over the last few years. A significant goal is to improve communication between the many participants in a software development project (and by that we mean everyone, from the customer to the developer). And for this it is essential that all software elements are described among themselves and work together perfectly.
 
The iSAQB® CPSA program is divided into several levels, with the foundation level being the first level. Aspiring software architects receive a particularly pragmatic introduction to the field of software architecture.
 
In addition, you will be taught the following content according to the iSAQB® curriculum:

  • Knowledge of the term and the meaning of software architecture
  • A deep understanding of the tasks and responsibilities of software architects
  • Knowledge of the role of a software architect in diverse IT projects
  • Learn about the latest and most efficient methods and tools for developing state-of-the-art software architectures.
  • Know-how about coordination processes with other stakeholders
  • conducting tests
  • Definition of all essential software architecture decisions

At the beginning of the training, we focus on all methodical tools to develop architectures. The last day prepares the participants for the certification, focusing on both practical and theoretical basics of software architectures. The seminar concludes with the iSAQB® Certified Professional for Software Architecture exam. The CPSA-F exam can currently be taken in six languages: English, German, Spanish, Italian, (Brazilian) Portuguese and French.
 
The various certification levels of the iSAQB® Certified Professional for Software Architecture (CPSA) make it possible for software architects to receive up-to-date confirmation of their expertise and knowledge. There are already over 17,000 software architects internationally from many areas and sectors such as the automotive industry, financial services, medical technology, telecommunications, public administration and many more.
