BCS Solutions and Enterprise Architecture - Intermediate and Practitioner
5 Days includes Exam
About the course
This course is a combination of our Intermediate and Practitioner Enterprise and Solution Architecture modules. During the course, you’ll learn about architecture frameworks, software and data architectures, architecture management and migration planning, and much, much more.
What makes this course unique is that not only does it combine modules, but it combines theoretical with practical learning too, giving you the opportunity to try out the methods and techniques using a realistic case study. It also helps those with a TOGAF certificate to see how the framework can be applied in practice.
Who is it for?
The course is aimed at enterprise and business architects, business analysts, change managers and anyone else requiring a good overall understanding of enterprise and business architecture.
There are no pre-requisites for this course.
During this five day course you’ll receive all the training you need to prepare for the two one-hour, BCS Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Intermediate and Practitioner certificate exams. The Intermediate exam takes place on the Wednesday (pm) and the Practitioner on the Friday (pm). A pass in both exams means a certificate in both modules, and they both contribute to the BCS Professional Certifications portfolio and cover the specialist modules for the BCS International Diploma in Solution Development. The course is also consistent with SFIA skill ARCH level 6 and STPL level 5.
This classroom-based course provides a comprehensive coverage of the purpose, scope and techniques used within enterprise and solution architecture.
