Certification

A Combined exam voucher is issued to participants at the end of the course. The best way to think of the combined exam is that it is one exam session with two parts. The Combined candidate sits both parts consecutively, with Level 2 immediately following Level 1. Each part must be passed in order to obtain an overall pass. If you fail one part then no certification is awarded, however you only need retake the failed part. So for example if you fail Level 1, you need only retake the Level 1 exam. But you need to wait at least one month before you are allowed to retake an examination. If an exam is failed it is up to the candidate to purchase another voucher if they wish to have another attempt. Candidates who pass both exams are awarded TOGAF 9 Level 2 certification.

Level 1 (Foundation) Exam

  • Certification is only achieved by passing the examination
  • The exam is in closed-book format, and includes 40 multiple-choice questions
