About the Course

The TOGAF 9 certification course explores the core principles and concepts of the TOGAF standard. It encourages participants to think critically about how they might apply their knowledge practically. This approach sets the learner up for success both in the exam and in real-world scenarios. 

The modules examine the core concepts of the TOGAF standard, Version 9.2. Learners will dive into the Architecture Development Method (ADM), which sits at the framework’s heart. The course also covers the various reference models, building blocks and stakeholder management techniques that help make TOGAF a globally-recognized standard.

This award-winning online course provides an engaging mix of resources including self-paced learning videos, formative quizzes, revision modules, mock exams and a downloadable PDF workbook.  The training package is designed to ensure that learners get everything they require to pass the TOGAF 9 Foundation and Certified examinations on the first attempt.
