Like many of your peers you would be looking to do develop your professional skills and considering becoming TOGAF 9 certified. For convenience and cost factors, you have made the choice that online learning is the way to go. Congratulations on taking this first step, the next decision is choosing which online study course to take.
A particular cause for concern for those who have never studied via an online course is the level of support provided during the training. The concern being that self study is paramount to studying in isolation. Consider the fact that online learning currently counts for over 50% of the annual corporate training spend and that this percentage is growing year on year (Global Industry Analysts). What’s the point? Simple, you are not alone, rather you are part of a growing trend and online training providers have a vested interest to ensure your learning experience delivers the required outcome. Along with this comes a heavy investment in support and ensuring that your learning experience is interactive and engaging.
In the Enterprise Architecture domain, there are several accredited providers of online training and it has become increasingly difficult for individuals and companies to choose the provider that is right for them. So which provider should you chose?
Using the acronym STARTUP here are the reasons why we at Architecting the Enterprise believe you should join the growing number of individuals and corporations who are choosing our online training for TOGAF9 accreditation and beyond.
Support – In addition to the course material, quizzes and the official exam preparation pack, Architecting the Enterprise goes further with an online workbook that tests your understanding of the material in an exam environment. Mentor support, this is readily available through our well established mentoring program.
Track Record – Architecting the Enterprise were the very first training provider to deliver TOGAF training and continues to invest time and money into the developing of TOGAF and other EA standards.
Additional value – TOGAF9 and Frameworx alignment – free foundation course. This is an excellent introductory course that addresses the touch points needed to establish an Enterprise Architecture practice in an organization using TOGAF® and Frameworx and it’s yours at no extra cost.
Reputation – Our global reputation as a training provider that delivers the highest standard of quality is born out of our commitment to ensuring that everyone should benefit from the use of best practices as represented in recognized standards.
Tutoring – Virtual Instructor led sessions. In keeping with our commitment to ensuring understanding we provide a series of webinars that cover the main concepts in TOGAF. All online students are invited to attend as many of these sessions over the period of their training as they wish. Not only would you get first hand instruction from a subject matter expert but you also have the opportunity to ask questions around TOGAF in general and your course in particular.
Unbeaten pricing- You would expect all this to be charged at a premium rate. During a recent competitor analysis, we established that our online course rate was the lowest in the market for accredited training courses.
People – We are committed to you as a person and that is reflected in our people. Not only is the company globally recognized but its people are too. Our training material is continually being reviewed by our subject matter experts who have been recognized for their contributions to TOGAF,SOA, ArchiMate, Cloud Computing and more.
