ArchiMate 2.1 Certification course Level 1&2


Course Overview

EA Principals is a Gold Member of The Open Group and Co-Sponsor of the ArchiMate Certification Program.

ArchiMate 2.1 is an open and independent modeling language for Enterprise Architecture. It complements The Open Group Architectural Framework (TOGAF), although it is not dependent on TOGAF. ArchiMate 2.1 offers architects a notation methodology for describing, analyzing, and visualizing relationships among entities in business, data, application, and technology domains. ArchiMate can also be used to support other modeling languages, such as UML for software development and BPMN for business process modeling.

This intensive course covers the ArchiMate 2.1 standard, thereby preparing candidates for both Level 1 and Level 2 certification examinations. The course is enhanced with case studies that demonstrate how ArchiMate is used in context. Sample exam questions and answers are given throughout the course to help better prepare students for their exams.
