This is an on-line offering of our flagship course, Enterprise Architecture Using TOGAF® 9. This course was the first Accredited TOGAF 9 training course fully accredited by The Open Group in 2009. The current curriculum, Version 3.5, was reaccredited in 2016. It is up to date with all required changes through TOGAF 9.1.
This course prepares the students for successful completion of the TOGAF 9 certification exams. However, the primary focus is to develop the ability to use the TOGAF standard to create effective enterprise architectures. Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
- take the TOGAF Part 1 and Part 2 exams
- apply concepts and techniques from the TOGAF standard in their organization
We use the Citrix GoToTraining platform as our e-Learning collaboration environment. It supports reliable presentation of course content and
interactive communications needed to promote student interaction. We use quizzes, breakout sessions and case studies to allow students to apply course concepts.
Student Web Site
We activate a private Student Website for each course about 1-2 weeks before the course begins. This allows students to get an advance opportunity to access and review course materials. The materials in this Student Website supports the training and can be an invaluable resource after the course.
We use a case study to permit the students to apply course concepts to practical problems and situations that often arise in an enterprise environment.
We provide a course workbook to each student. The workbook follows the course presentation and provides simple, practical exercises that apply course content. The workbook also has quizzes that allow the student to check and confirm their understanding of the course material.
We also provide an answer key for the course workbook. The key provides the correct answers and explanations to support self-study. s
We provide Practice Exams developed by The Open Group to all students in our accredited TOGAF training courses. Metaplexity Associates staff have participated in the development of the certification exams in the subjects we teach. Some TOGAF exams available on the Internet are poorly developed and don’t adhere to the examination conformance requirements. In some cases, practice exams come from illicit “Exam Dump” sites. These should be avoided.
We issue an Examination Voucher to each participant in an Accredited TOGAF Training Course. The Open Group is now using Pearson VUE as the examination provider. The voucher can be used exchanged at any Pearson test center that administers TOGAF examinations. In some courses, the examination can be administered at the end of the course. This does not apply to on-line courses.
