About this course

The TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture Practitioner certification provides validation that an individual has the knowledge, comprehension, and ability to analyze and apply the TOGAF® Standard to developing, sustaining, and using an Enterprise Architecture. The learning objectives at this level focus on application and analysis in addition to knowledge and comprehension.
The purpose of this bridge learning path is to enable individuals who are TOGAF® 9 Certified to obtain TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture Practitioner certification. The bridge option exists to recognize the existing investment in TOGAF® certification for individuals who have achieved the TOGAF® 9 Certified qualification.
Certified individuals will have the following competencies:
  • Know how to apply the TOGAF® approach to transform and manage change
  • Know how to apply the TOGAF® method
