Course Overview

This online course is a primer of the one-day physical classroom course Delivering Business Values in Enterprise Architecture using TOGAF® 9.1. This online course materials are directly derived from TOGAF® 9 course syllabus.

To fit the format & time constraints of an online class, some course materials covered in the one-day physical classroom experience have been omitted. Also, the depth of coverage for concepts may not always be the same as that of the classroom experience.

However, students are getting a 70% primer of the one-day classroom course. It is a great all-round introduction to the concepts required for the TOGAF® 9.1 certification.

Completion for this online course do not confer credit towards any TOGAF® certification, nor will attendees be adequately prepared for the TOGAF® certification exam.
A PDF course completion certificate would be given to those requiring it. Classes are conducted in English.
