Certifying program


Discover the engineering and systems architecture skills development program. This program is based on the CESAM Pocket Guide and the “Systems Architect” and “Enterprise Architect” competency framework. The CESAM program gives access to 3 certification: CESAM Associate, CESAM Confirmed and CESAM Expert.

The Program?

It is a skills development program in Systems and Enterprise Architecture associated with a professional multilevel certification named CESAM: CESAMES Systems Architecting Method. The CESAM skills development program demonstrates the ability of a person to implement enterprise or systems architecture methods in specific contexts, with a CESAM certification being awarded.

Who is concerned?

CESAM skills development program is addressed to all systems architects, engineers, project managers, managers or directors who wish to better master the complex systems they work on every day. Through CESAM formal method, the knowledge and experience level in systems architecture of people can ba assessed regardless of their seniority and level in the company.

CESAM program: the maturity levels of certification

CESAM training programs

Introductory training

This training is designed to cover your management’s needs for awareness on architectural approach and to enable your architects to better understand all the issues and key architectural processes. At the end of the training, the participant has one month to take the online evaluation in order to obtain the CESAM Associate certification.

Advanced training

The advanced training allows trainees to work on a concrete project on which they work / will work in their company. Alternating theories, practical contributions and project coaching, the advanced training is a remarkable tool for you / your teams, to build skills as and when a project. Our advanced training can be carried out in the in-company format (approximately 12 to 18 months) and inter-company format (6 months).

Validation of Acquired Experience (VAE)

A Validation of Acquired Experience mechanism is proposed by CESAMES for both “Enterprise Architect” and “Systems Architect” certifications. Any person who has at least 1 year of experience related to the certification, is eligible for VAE, regardless of age, nationality, status and level of education.

The objective of this training is to provide you with valuable insights and a methodology to help you design better products while reducing delays and design costs.

Mastering the complexity of the systems you work on (products or projects) within your industrial organizations is increasingly difficult. The insufficient maturity of the integration processes and operations in silos are often at the origin of these problems, the difficulty of gathering the needs of your internal or external customers too.

We propose to introduce you to systemic modeling and collaborative dynamics in order to help you better control the costs, quality and performance of complex industrial systems that you design and/or manage.

Digital Coaching by MBSE and CESAM Systems Architecting Method

This coaching uses Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) and CESAM’s unique method to demonstrate how systems architecture excels in complex systems design and management.

The purpose of this online coaching is to help to successfully establish high-quality, reproducible products and production chains with the goal of reducing time/cost and ensuring the highest level of safety through the hybrid method of system architecture in the early stage of design. Participants can quickly understand the scientific theory and practical method of architecture through this short-term tutoring. After returning to their organization, one can quickly provide effective suggestions to decision-makers, effectively collaborate with the team, and carry out system architecture or enterprise transformation projects.
