The Cloud Architect track is comprised of CCP Modules 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6, the outlines for which are provided in the upcoming pages. Depending on the exam format chosen, attaining the Cloud Architect certification can require passing a single exam or multiple exams. Upon achieving the accreditation, certification holders receive a formal digital certificate and an Acclaim/Credly digital badge with an account that supports the online verification of certification status.
