This  is the new TOGAF® Essentials 2018 course!

This course, developed by The Open Group, will bring you up to date on the changes to the TOGAF® 9 standard with the release of the TOGAF® 9.2 specification.

People who already hold TOGAF® 9, Level 2 certification can earn a new credential to show their understanding of the new standard.

The TOGAF® Essentials 2018 is offered at a standard course fee of $200 USD, but for existing Metaplexity clients, the course fee will be $150 USD, both prices including a voucher for the online certification exam for the credential.

Metaplexity Associates, Inc. will present online versions of this course.  Private courses can be arranged for live classroom or online offerings.

Expected Outcomes

Upon completion of this 3-hour course, each student will receive a voucher that will enable them to take a 20-question, online, open-book assessment. Upon achieving a score of 75% or better, students will earn the TOGAF® Essentials 2018 credential. This credential will be administered using the Pearson VUE Acclaim web-enabled digital badge.

The TOGAF® 9.2 release has expanded coverage of areas such as Business Architecture, that will enable the Enterprise Architect to create capabilities that support strategic business imperatives. It addresses many change requests that improve the content in technical and editorial ways. A major improvement is the separation of the core standard and guidance documentation. A new TOGAF® Library assembles several Open Group white papers and guidance documents. This curated set of documents will allow the TOGAF® standard to be responsive to emerging trends much faster than publishing a single volume.
