On this accelerated MuleSoft Certified Architect (MCA) course, you'll learn how to define and the necessary skills to direct the emergence of an effective application network out of individual integration solutions following API-led connectivity across an organisation using Anypoint Platform.

In just 2 days, you'll learn to optimise and shape the Anypoint Platform deployment in the specific organisational context, working with business, infrastructure, InfoSec, and other teams. You’ll also build knowledge on:

  • Defining how Anypoint Platform is used in conjunction with other tools and applications in the organisation
  • Defining the usage of Anypoint Platform and the corresponding organisational and process changes needed to help the platform be sustainable
  • Providing guidance and drive the creation of standards, reusable assets, and automation required for scale and multi-LoB adoption

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the MuleSoft MCA exam, and achieve your MuleSoft Certified Architect (MCA) certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.


This course is ideal if you are a Platform Architect.
