The Open Group's IT Architect Certification program is the premier, global certification program for certifying skills and experience in the IT architecture community. Based on the proven best practices in the industry, it sets an independent, industry-wide standard for IT Architects and creates a foundation for trust between suppliers and customers. The program enables organizations to standardize on open method for IT architecture and avoid a lock-in to the proprietary methods of different consulting firms. Customers can base their IT architecture on an open, industry standard method, which works with all major frameworks, and can procure tools, training, and the services of consultants (individuals and integrators) with confidence, on the basis of certified conformance with TOGAF 9 standards. For service providers and tool vendors, the certification provides a vehicle to clearly demonstrate that their services and products support and use the methodology and product sets that TOGAF 9 certifies. One exam voucher per attendee will be provided in ProTech public open-enrollment classes.
There are no formal prerequisites for this program or for the TOGAF 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 2 Exam. However, it is recommended that course participants possess generic understanding of ITSM best practices and Enterprise Architecture. The successful completion of the course greatly depends on the course participants’ involvement as they are required, besides their study time, to actively participate in the workgroup and practical exercises.
