    With this limited offering announced at PegaWorld '19, there is no better time to take the next step in your career than right now!

    Throughout this journey, participants are expected to complete milestones to ensure a passing score is achieved on each part of the CLSA exam). Review the steps for each component below 

    1. LSA Readiness Exam
    2. CLSA Architecture Exam
    3. CLSA Application Build

    Only first-time CLSA candidates who have achieved their CSSA (in any version) are eligible to participate in this offering.

    Depending on your eligibility to participate, we will provide a one-time Pearson VUE voucher code to attempt your LSA Readiness Exam and CLSA Architecture Exam.

    Please note that you will not be given multiple free attempts to complete each level (Readiness, Architecture, App Build) of CLSA exams.
