Brief Description

What Differentiates this Course?

Case Study 

The comprehensive case study is based on three real world EA projects and provides delegates with a much richer appreciation for the scope and subtlety of issues in real EA projects than typical class exercises.

Hands On

Delegates will do individual and team assignments to apply knowledge and experience techniques first hand. This enhances learning and provides delegates with more confidence and a faster start when returning to their organisations.

Additional Coverage

TOGAF is valuable and extensive, but not perfect! Our extensive expertise allows us to supplement TOGAF in key areas to make it even more effective and valuable.

High Quality Delegate Materials 

Includes electronic reference, pocket guide, self study guides for levels 1, sample exam, slides and additional references.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for those who need an appreciation of Enterprise Architecture and an overview of TOGAF, but who do not require full certification at level 2, which is intended for working/professional architects. It can be used to begin the journey to taking up an architect role. It would also benefit CIOs, application portfolio managers, I.T. strategists, senior business analysts, programme managers, project managers, senior developers and those responsible for change programmes. 

Course Overview

This course covers the body of knowledge required for TOGAF 9 certification at Level 1 (Foundation). The course is accredited by The Open Group.
Successful delegates, who complete the independent examination, will be registered with the Open Group as TOGAF Foundation qualified. Additional material over and above TOGAF is provided in order to put EA and modern architectures such as Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) into perspective. An in-depth case study based on real world situations shows application of techniques through a typical architecture implementation life-cycle. The 6+ practical assignments completed during the two days of training, learning from other delegates and the experience and expertise of the lecturer(s) combine to create a sound, practical, effective and compelling learning experience.
