Why take this course?
This online training course, designed by TOGAF experts and assessed and accredited by The Open Group, prepares the student with everything they need to pass the TOGAF 9 Foundation (level 1) exam. It is therefore ideal for any individual or team engaged in or aspiring to Enterprise Architecture, and wishing to become certified in the TOGAF standard, Version 9.2, at Foundation level.
Achieving Foundation Certification with The Open Group proves to your peers and the wider Enterprise Architecture community that you have a good understanding of the TOGAF Framework and its core principles and concepts. Certification is achieved by passing the Foundation exam. Both of these facts inform the two objectives of the course: to give a good grounding in the TOGAF 9 standard, and to prepare you to succeed at the Foundation exam.
Candidates must first pass the Foundation level exam as a pre-requisite before taking the TOGAF Certified (level 2) exam. For students looking to take both exams in quick succession, we recommend taking our combined TOGAF 9 Certified (level 1 & 2) course.
Students will receive 6 months of access to this course, as well as a FREE exam voucher. This course has been fully accredited by The Open Group and meets all the learning requirements of the TOGAF standard, Version 9.2, in order for students to sit and pass the TOGAF Foundation level exam.
This course is ideal for:
Anyone who requires a basic understanding of the TOGAF standard, Version 9.2, at Foundation level
Professionals who are working in roles associated with an architecture project and want to achieve a globally recognized qualification
Architects who are looking to contribute to or lead a team engaged in activities related to Enterprise Architecture
Anyone wishing to take the first step in gaining full TOGAF 9 Certification.
Anyone wanting to pass the official TOGAF 9 Foundation exam
