Brief Description

A practice-oriented, comprehensive course covering the syllabus for TOGAF® 9 Level 1 (Foundation) certification. The course is not accredited by The Open Group but is derived from our accredited full certification course. Delegates may independently elect to take the TOGAF Part 1 Examination to become Foundation Certified. Coverage of Enterprise Architecture using the TOGAF standard and Architecture Development Method.

What Differentiates this Course?

Case Study 

The comprehensive case study is based on 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

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

High Quality Delegate Materials 

Includes printed colour manual, electronic reference, pocket guide, self study guide for level 1, slides and additional references.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for those who need an appreciation of Enterprise Architecture and an overview of the TOGAF standard, 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).
Delegates who choose to take and pass the independent examination, will be registered by The Open Group as TOGAF Foundation qualified. Additional material over and above TOGAF documentation 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 and a half 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.
