To become a SUSE Enterprise Architect (SEA), candidates must achieve a certification portfolio that includes:
The SCE11 and SCE12 are considered to be the same level of certification and only one may be used toward attaining the SEA.
The “2 Engineer certifications” requirement must be satisfied from two separate tracks.
Note that the SEA has no “in” designation, and there is no test for becoming an SEA. Instead, candidates achieve SEA by getting certified in a sufficient number of the requisite Engineer and Administrator focus areas.
Why do we ask so much to achieve an SEA? To be well rounded, candidates should prove a breadth of knowledge across SUSE platforms and technologies…but they must also prove sufficient depth.
This method of certifying proves a greater depth and breadth of understanding throughout the entire SUSE solution framework.
