Tell us a bit about your Pega journey - What was your motivation to pursue CLSA certification?
Pega technology has fast-tracked my career. I started as a Java developer and transitioned to Pega, which has allowed me to continuously uncover new ways of solving complex problems by leveraging Pega software.
I wanted to have the full confidence of my clients when going through architect board review sessions and solution walk through’s. That was my main motivation behind pursuing CLSA certification.
What do you hope to be doing with your career in 5 years?
I would like to become an entrepreneur where I can help clients find innovative solutions for their technical issues.

What were the most significant obstacles that you faced on your path to become CLSA certified? How were you able to overcome those obstacles?
I completed the CLSA Readiness exam but it was quite challenging to get through the Architecture exam due to project deadlines. It really comes down to dedicating time for exam prep. Once I went through a few CLSA retired exams, that gave me the confidence to move forward.
What message or advice would you give to anyone who is considering a career as a Pega CLSA?
I would encourage aspirants to start with looking over CLSA retired exams and then to take as many practice exams as possible to properly prepare.
