"Thanks to Steve, I am now TOGAF certified. Steve's class was very focused. By the end of the class, the concept of EA and TOGAF's approach became very clear. Steve made the class meaningful by drawing from his broad experience and answering specific questions from our organization."
"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."

"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."
"I attended the four day TOGAF 9 training conducted by EA Principals with the goal of getting an understanding of TOGAF and to support my preparation for the Level 1 and Level 2 examinations.
The four day training class was well organized by EA Principals in terms of location, size of the class, the materials provided and the structuring of the materials for easy access by the students during and class and the ability to use them after the class.
The trainer – Steve Else was very experienced with TOGAF and was also an experienced Enterprise Architect, a trainer, and a contributor to enhancement of the TOGAF framework. This combination of skills was extremely advantageous to the class since the trainer could provide real world examples of his experiences to the questions of the students which helped the students relate to scenarios in their work environment. In addition, the trainer provided additional support material and exam exercises that I felt were very useful after the class.
At the end of the class, thanks to the well structured materials, the interactive approach and real world examples, I was not only comfortable in taking my learning from the class to apply it in the real world but was also confident of doing well on my certification exams. I later took the exams on two subsequent weekends and cleared them comfortably with high scores.
I strongly value the training I obtained from EA Principals and recommend the class for anyone planning to get a quick ramp up on TOGAF and for those preparing for the exam."

"Great course! Examples and case studies are very valuable. Applying what you’ve learned to an evolving case is a very effective way to learn."
