Course Description:

The TOGAF® 9 Level 1 and 2 Combined course is an interactive, classroom-based learning experience. The course covers the curriculi of both Level 1 and level 2. The Foundation level content enables participants to successfully complete the associated TOGAF Level 1 exam, known as TOGAF 9 Foundation. The certification provides validation that the candidate has gained knowledge of the terminology, structure, and basic concepts of TOGAF 9, and understands the core principles of Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF. The TOGAF 9 Level 2 content focuses on the practical application of TOGAF framework, building on the foundational knowledge and comprehension of Level 1, using practical scenarios to enforce concepts.

 Benefits

  • Focus on effectiveness – Real-life Analogies, Formative Quizzes, Mind Maps, after-course study guide, mock exams. This enhances the performance of the participants during the course, and focuses on their key strengths and areas of improvement. We also make sure that people pass the exam of course.
  • Engaging & Fun – A central case study in the form of a comic strip and eFlash Cards are engaging ways to learn, recall, and retain. We don’t offer some boring 750-page TOGAF book, or 5 days of theory, but a fun experience.
