"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!"

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."
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.

"The instructor is great and this is a very worthwhile course. The skills gained during this course would tremendously help me do my job more effectively and to better understand my customer’s architecture and to provide them with better solutions."

"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."
"Thanks for the great support you and Kevin and team provide. I’m sure glad I listened to Kevin…"
