About this course

The ArchiMate® 3 Enterprise Architecture modeling language provides a uniform representation for diagrams that describe Enterprise Architectures. It includes concepts for specifying inter-related architectures, specifying viewpoints for selected stakeholders, and language customization mechanisms. It describes and brings different architecture domains and their underlying relations and dependencies to visualization.

This intensive course covers the entire syllabus for the ArchiMate® 3 Foundation (Level 1), thereby preparing candidates for the ArchiMate® 3 Foundation (Level 1) examination.

As one of only a few ArchiMate Certification sponsors in The Open Group, EA Principals had one of the earliest programs accredited and has been teaching the very latest version, now version 3.2.” from the very beginning.”

We also customize an Executive Orientation to ArchiMate class, which lasts for a half-day, showing examples of the power of ArchiMate even for executives, directors, program/project managers, business architects/analysts to appreciate.

There are two levels of ArchiMate® 3 certification, denoted Level 1 and Level 2. Level 2 is a superset of Level 1 as it contains all the learning requirements for Level 1.

There is one exam for level 1 and one exam for level 2 (available at Pearson Vue Testing Centers). There is no combined exam for both level 1&2 in one sitting.
