"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.
"The course was interesting and the instructor was really good. Her knowledge in the field made the training sessions more interactive and interesting too."
"The courseware is amazing! Excellent. It provides a great deal of information in a highly useable and interactive manner. Shows evidence of the investment of careful planning and time. I am very appreciative."
"I am very pleased with the robust and useful review of TOGAF. Dr. Else is a great guy. Keep doing what you are doing!"

I wanted to reach out to you as I took your [TOGAF® 9 Course: Level 1 & Level 2 Combined] class remotely on June 20th-23rd and really enjoyed it. I wanted to let you know that it was very helpful – especially in grounding me on the TOGAF specification sections layout. This, as well as the mind map strategy on the level 2 test approach helped a great deal, and I’m happy to relate that I have passed both level 1 and level 2 tests and am now certified!
"Good mix of lecture, group and individual exercises."
"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."
