"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."

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!
I was trained on TOGAF® 9.1 by Dr. Steve and I had a great experience with EA Principals. Btw, I had scored a 100% on the TOGAF® Level 2.
"Thanks – I learned a lot of new information in those 2 weeks as I had no prior experience with TOGAF. Cleared both Level 1&2 with out any issues."

"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!"
