Thank you EA Principals, I just get Certified in Level 2 on TOGAF the last week. I took the course with you the last year in December 2017 in Washington DC, with Dr Steven Else, the course was amazing, and the material was outstanding. I must say that I was trying to get certified before you came to me, but none of the methods succeeded.

"EA principals was able to create a successful, 4 day training program that helps achieve TOGAF understanding and certification. The training materials provided by EA principals are extremely useful and complete, I have been referencing them constantly as I develop our architecture repository and reference models. Steve Else and the staff at EA principals made this a enjoyable and informative experience."

"My biggest concern prior to the training was the usefulness or applicability of TOGAF, because many training courses and frameworks instill a good feeling, but afterwards applying the ideas turns out to be very difficult.
During the first day of the training I realized that TOGAF is not only a framework, but it also provides guidelines and techniques that help to implement TOGAF in practice. The soft copy of the material includes the book, slide sets, various study aids, use cases and perhaps most importantly templates of the deliverables. This material is extremely useful and really makes a big difference when applying TOGAF.
Steve conducted the training using the experience and strong competence he possesses. Although at times it is hard to absorb the huge amount of information, Steve made it easier by focusing on the important topics. Steve runs repetitions of key TOGAF points so many times that it starts to stick. With the use cases and comparisons to other frameworks, Steve helped to clarify the position TOGAF and at the same time made the learning process easier.
Thanks to Steve’s thorough guidance it was possible to pass both exams in 2 weeks time after the training."
"Good mix of lecture, group and individual exercises."

Choosing EA Principals was the best decision I made for my TOGAF certification! EA Principals' TOGAF training materials greatly simplified matter and enabled me to pass the tests within weeks. I got 85 for level 1 and 80 for level 2. I benefited from a training program tailored to my needs. I appreciate EA Principals' assisting me to reach my special goal.To summarize, EA Principals' training program has the following advantages:1) Flexible training programEA Principals is more flexible than any other training providers I considered. It provides separate test vouchers for level 1 & 2, which is important. Reason for this is that it may be difficult to do well in a level 2 test if combined with level 1, because it is a different kind of test from level 1 and the mental switch is significant.They would also provide free retake test voucher(s) if you failed on the first try.2) On target training materialsIt was advice from Steve Else on what to focus on that led me to successfully pass both tests. He gave me clear direction about what slides to read and what practice tests to take.The EA Principals' briefing slides were only 215 pages long for level 1 and 218 pages for level 2. Their practice tests provided sufficient coverage of all the subject areas in sufficient depth. It was an effective training program that allowed me to pass the tests within a minimum amount of time!3) Clear messagesTOGAF contains quite some "big" words with no concrete meanings. Steve Else's uses things that we could relate to, to explain the seemingly abstract concepts and made it easy to distinguish between them. He is a talented teacher as well as an expert in the subject area.4) Outstanding training managerLast but not least, Fawn is brilliant! She always does what she has promised. She was patient and went above and beyond.Thank you, EA Principals! Highly recommended!Emily Zhang, Enterprise Architect
