TOGAF 9 Intensive (Levels 1 and 2) 9.1

TOGAF 9 Intensive (Levels 1 and 2) is Archi Tact’s flagship 5-day Enterprise Architecture course. The course and the content we provide are fully accredited by The Open Group. Over the course of 5 days we endeavor to teach participants the life and form of enterprise architecture using the TOGAF 9 framework. The sessions include teaching, discussions, debates, quizzes and case studies. The course is designed to prepare participants for full TOGAF 9 certification by The Open Group. We allow the participants to appear for the Certification examination on the last day of the training and return to their offices with the certification in hand.

TOGAF 9 Intensive (Levels 1 and 2) follows an intensive and streamlined format to cover all the required content for TOGAF 9 Certification. The course provides participants practical insights from forest level views to deep dives and examples of how to successfully apply the framework across their organizations.
