The TOGAF 9.1 Certified (Level 1 & Level 2) course is an interactive, classroom-based learning experience. The course covers the curriculi of both levels 1 and 2. The Foundation level content enables participants to successfully complete the associated TOGAF Level 1 exam, known as TOGAF 9.1 Foundation. The certification provides validation that the candidate has gained knowledge of the terminology, structure, and basic concepts of TOGAF 9.1, and understands the core principles of Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF. And finally, the TOGAF 9.1, Level 2 content focuses on the practical application of the TOGAF framework; building upon the foundational knowledge and comprehension of Level 1 with practical scenarios that enforce the concepts.
Interactivity guaranteed: Group Discussions, Think-Pair-Share, Brainstorming, and 2-Minute Paper Activities. Our course engages all types of participants, including the quieter lot, and encourages sharing of ideas and team building among the participants.
Focus on effectiveness: Real-life Analogies, Formative Quizzes, Mind Maps, after-course study guide, and mock exams. This enhances the participants’ performance during the course, and focuses on their key strengths and areas of improvement. We also ensure that people pass the exam.
Engaging: A central case study in the form of a comic strip and eFlash Cards are engaging ways to learn, recall, and retain. We do not serve up a boring 750-page TOGAF book, or 5 days of theory. We offer a truly engaging experience.
