The 2 fundamental courses replace the old power user certification. I think there's a test for each one. Once you pass those 2, you can then take the 2 admin courses. Once you finish those, you take the 50 choice multiple question test. After that, you take Architecting and Deploying Splunk and 1-2 other courses, then you are ready for the 24 hour hands on Architect exam.

When you complete "Splunk Fundamentals 1" and give exam you will get "Splunk Certified User" certificate.
After that you need to complete "Splunk Fundamentals 2" and you can appear for "Splunk Certified Power User" certification.

No, Only 2 exams

"Splunk Fundamentals 1" course -> "Splunk Certified User" certification(exam) -> "Splunk Fundamentals 2" course -> "Splunk Certified Power User" certification(exam)

Architect II is the highest certification available to customers. The highest overall certification is SCC2 (Splunk Certified Consultant 2) which is much more rigorous that the architect certification.

I pasted the track below to get certified and the order of classes. Judging from your previous posts on Answers, I'm confident you can obtain the Architect II cert with no issues
