BCS Combined (Intermediate + Practitioner) Certificates in Enterprise and Solution Architecture


This 5 day accredited course spans the breath of architecture concepts from business through data and applications and software to infrastructure.

It concludes with two BCS professional certificate examinations.

After the course, attendees will understand many terms, concepts, processes and products used by enterprise and solution architects, understand what it means to apply architecture frameworks such as TOGAF and Zachman, and understand the place of modelling languages such as UML and ArchiMate. They will be able to fill the gap between high-level management frameworks and low-level software development lifecycles. The course includes class exercises and case study work.

The course concludes with two formal examinations set and marked by the BCS, who later send the exam results directly to delegates.

The BCS Intermediate and Practitioner level Professional Certificates in Enterprise and Solution Architecture are well-respected qualifications that help people understand a variety of architecture frameworks.
