If you are visiting this page, I am assuming you going for or interested in getting “Salesforce Certified Application Architect” credential and begin your #JourneyToCTA
To get this credential you must have good knowledge of Salesforce Application/Product. There are 4 certifications that you need to complete to get this one:
- Salesforce Certified App Builder
- Salesforce Certified Platform Developer 1
- Salesforce Certified Sharing And Visibility Designer
- Salesforce Certified Data Architecture and Management Designer
If you see above image, “Certified Application Architect” domain certificate covers the left side of the pyramid and include all above-mentioned certificate.
There is no specific order to complete these 4 certifications and you can appear for any exam in any order, but completing these 4 certifications are mandatory to get your Application Architect credentials. Here is the order that I follow for these certifications:
Platform Developer 1 > App Builder > Sharing And Visibility Designer > Data Architecture and Management Designer
Once you get all these 4 certifications, you will get your Application Architect certificate as well and there is no separate exam that you need to give for that one.
I have already shared my experience and tips on the designer certificates in my previous posts:
All the best guys!!
