Enterprise and Solution Architecture Practitioner Courses build upon the concepts previously introduced in the Intermediate Level programme and helps practitioners to create and describe architecture using ideas from TOGAF and other architecture frameworks

Participants apply their existing intermediate-level knowledge to case study situations. The course elaborates on the organisation and processes required to manage an architecture successfully

This course leads to the BCS (formerly ISEB) Professional Certification in Enterprise and Solution Architecture (Practitioner). The examination for this qualification lasts for one hour and is held at the end of the course. The examination consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. This certificate is a specialist module for the Diploma in Solution Development

BCS courses are delivered by Accredited BCS Training Partners

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
