The course is broad ranging, it explains and relates the four primary domains of architecture work.

It differentiates enterprise architect, solution architect and software architect roles.

The course includes both mock examinations and real 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.
