Each SOACP certification requires the completion of a specific set of exams. In order to pass the required exams, you are encouraged to complete the corresponding course modules listed on the Courses page. However, completing courses is not a requirement for certification.

Prometric Exams

Each exam has a unique code that contains the number of the module the exam corresponds to, plus an optional alphabetic version identifier. For example, Exam S90.01A is the code for the exam that corresponds to Module 1: Fundamental SOA & Service-Oriented Computing. The "A" is the version identifier. Exam codes may be displayed with or without the version identifier. For example, you will see this exam referred to as S90.01 or S90.01A.

  • For candidates using Prometric exam voucher codes, each code is valid for a one-time use. To retake an exam, a new voucher code is required.
