was great attending the Architecture workshop. It
was really one of the most inter-esting and intense
workshop on software architecture I have attended.
Congra- tulation for achieving it and making it available
to software community. This will enable to move up

iCMG Education Service Group offers IT Architecture certification programs to impart competency for business modeling, system envisioning, technology selection, system specification, and software process facilitation.
This unique program evaluates the IT architect's ability to specify overall requirements, define system level design decisions and plan complex systems and implementation processes.
All the testing and certifications are administered with strict quality controls.
Why iCMG Architecture Certification?
To serve and protect the organizations interest towards Architecture driven IT investments.
This unique program evaluates the team of IT architects/ designers ability to plan complex systems and implementation processes.
Not influenced by frameworks or technologies unlike (TOGAF, process centric), SUN (J2EE centric), MS (.NET) etc

Sample Architecture Skill Governance Chart (team)
Here, is a sample architecture skill matrix of the team members. The skill governance program is very critical to ensure that those team members who doesn't qualify gets continuous mentoring and help to prepare themselves
Tier I Certification - First, the participants have to complete the Architecture course. After completion of the course, the student can register for certification and take up 2 hour online test.
Tier II Certification - A case study is given to the participants. The participants have to develop the architecture artifacts, defining mappings and ensure that the suggested solution results in better benefits. Subsequently, the results of the case study have to be presented to the certification panel (with atleast 2 members).
Please note that qualifying in Tier I certification is mandatory before taking up the
Tier II certification.
The key steps in certification process as described below
Note: The test schedule needs to be worked out with the co-ordinator.
