The Certified TestStand Architect is the final step in the two-part TestStand certification process. The exam shows a user’s expertise in architecting test systems based on TestStand from high-level specifications. You can use this certification to assess and validate an individual’s TestStand development and project management skills for the purpose of project staffing or career advancement.

For example, having Certified Architects on staff to provide technical leadership and guidance ensures that less experienced developers are following best practices that will make them more competent and efficient developers. In addition, Certified Architects can design the application architecture and manage the development of individual components by other engineers.
