The TOGAF standard is a globally used architectural framework and standard that enables organizations to design, evaluate and build the right IT architectures. ArchiMate is an independent modeling language that provides a uniform, structured and diagrammatic representation of the underlying relationship and dependencies between different architectural domains with specific viewpoints for stakeholders.

This online training program bundles the latest version of the renowned TOGAF 9 framework with the ArchiMate 3 modeling language, providing professionals with a cost-effective and comprehensive training package that can help to advance their career in enterprise governance. The training is accredited by The Open Group, a global consortium that enables businesses to achieve their objectives through technology standards and certifications.

This course explores the core principles and concepts of the TOGAF standard, and encourages participants to think critically about how they might apply their knowledge practically, both to real-life cases and those in the exams. The modules explore the core concepts of the TOGAF standard, and will dive into the Architecture Development Method (ADM), which sits at the framework’s heart.

The course also provides comprehensive coverage on other key elements of the framework, including the TOGAF standard Reference Models, Building Blocks, Architecture Repository, stakeholder management and Architecture Governance.

This fully accredited, award-winning, online course provides self-paced learning videos, formative quizzes, a downloadable PDF workbook, revision modules, mock exams and other training resources designed and developed to ensure learners get everything they require to pass the TOGAF 9 combined examination on the first attempt.


ArchiMate is a well-tested, vendor-neutral, lean and simple modeling language that helps users create precise representations of the core concepts of enterprise architecture. It does not prescribe how things work but combines well with EA practices like the TOGAF standard.

Training and qualifying in ArchiMate allows professionals to efficiently capture and address stakeholder concerns, identify and refine requirements and design EA models.

Benefits for Individuals

Having TOGAF 9 and ArchiMate 3 qualifications can help professionals demonstrate their knowledge and proficiency in enterprise architecture.

The online training course can help professionals to:

  • Capture stakeholder requirements efficiently
  • Demonstrate how stakeholder concerns are addressed
  • Learn a common language to collaborate with other TOGAF standard certified architects
  • Meet their organization’s IT needs better
  • Learn to optimize processes to ensure all departments work efficiently
  • Identify areas where they can cut costs for their organization
  • Improve their managerial skills
  • Grow their career and increase their earning potential

Benefits for Organization

A well-defined IT architecture leads to a much more efficient IT operation, giving businesses better returns on existing investments while also reducing risks for future investments.

The main benefit of adopting the world’s best EA practice is the consistency and discipline achieved within the process. It improves interoperability and customer-specific usability, reducing waste and costs. The framework integrates business objectives and adapts enterprise-specific operations, reducing complexity and helping to create better communication channels between internal and external stakeholders.

ArchiMate is a time-tested modeling language adopted globally by many organizations to improve consistency and comprehensibility. The course covers the most recent version of ArchiMate which includes elements for modeling architectures at a strategic level and boosting alignment with other popular standards to enhance usability.

Training your staff in the latest version of the TOGAF standard and ArchiMate will simplify and speed up the architecture development process in your organization, reducing costs in planning, designing and implementation.
