Data Architect - Certification Goal


Please be informed that Focus On Force has recently updated this Certification Course to reflect a more modern, stylish and accessible UI.

As you may have observed, we have cleaned up the Main Lesson Page to only show the Main Objectives, Mindmap (also available in Topic pages), and Feedback -- allowing you to have a more clutter-free workspace. We have created separate Topic Pages for each detailed objective which you can access at the left hand side of the page. Upon clicking, you will be presented with the Detailed Objectives under the Section that you have chosen. Additionally, we have put "Topic Progress" indicators which could guide you better on your progress.

For mobile users:
On the Main Course Page, you will see the Lesson Table wherein Percentages and Sections are listed. On the upper right hand side of the table, you will see options to "Expand All" and "Collapse All". If you click on "Expand All", it will give you the option to pick which objective you would like to access.

    Hi Team of focusonforce,
    I passed the Data Architect certification today, it is my 4th one in 10 months and I used focusonforce for all of them. I must say this one was quite hard, as it was often debatable which answer was the most suitable choice. However, the knowledge gained from previous certifications in combination with your study guide and the practice exams helped me get the job done.
    Thanks and all the best,

    Thank you, as always, Focus on Force! I passed the Data Architect exam today using a combination of the study guide and the practice exams. Content was pretty close, but the wording a little different. Definitely felt a couple of questions could have a couple of correct answers due to the wording.

    This was my 6th certification achieved using Focus on Force!

    I passed first first Designer Certification Today to enter in the world of certified Architects. Thank you FocusOnForce for creating such a great content. Though I feel that the study course should also come with atleast one full practice exam.
