"Having Dr. Else teach the class was wonderful, engaging, and inspiring! I’m very pleased with the class and the certification outcomes. The class really helped to get me energized and excited about my new position at work. I’m now the Deputy Corporate Security Architect for Oracle where I’ll be leading EA for the security domain across the company. So this class has already helped out and made ArchiMate my go-to language for EA modeling!"

Thank you for teaching the TOGAF 9 training course and publishing the level 1 & 2 prep book. I had passed the level 1 exam pretty quickly, but I had some difficulty with the level 2. With your 40 Level 2 Practice Scenarios Volume 1 Book, I just passed it yesterday (100%). I believe your book was indispensable to my passing the level 2. Your book helped me understand the more subtle nuances of TOGAF. It was an excellent preparation guide for me. So, I just wanted to say thank you.
"I could not find any part of that training that could not be considered more valuable than another. Really appreciated the supplemental links and materials."

The 3-day intro-to-intermediate (Sparx) class provided a holistic understanding of EA concepts and the tool. The combination of lecture and exercise was invaluable. J.D Baker was an excellent instructor. he was able to answer all questions presented to him.

"I enjoyed TOGAF 9 training very much. The materials are very well organized, and the provided documentation and the simulations gave us a better picture of TOGAF. Instructor Dr. Else is excellent. His rich experience and real world examples are the most valuable part of the course."

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
"The most valuable part of the course is the in-depth, first-hand knowledge of the instructor and the references that he provided. What I have learned not only prepares me to be tested and certified, but also will help me to consult and use in my job and career."
