Why Take This Course?

Because... TOGAF 9.1 is the leading industry enterprise architecture framework.

A TOGAF 9.1 Certified Background means your skills are being searched for right now at a premium. According to the 2015 IT Skills and Certifications Pay IndexTM ,TOGAF Certification is a qualification which commands premium pay.

Given Enterprise Architecture is growing in importance (and here to stay), this is fantastic for your career (and wallet) prospects.

This course will teach you what you need to know to sit and successfully pass the TOGAF Certification exam (Foundation Level 1 OG0-091) with the help of accelerated learning techniques. It covers the entire Foundation curriculum focusing heavily on the Architecture Development Method (ADM) - the core of TOGAF.

The bonus lecture "Your Career Boost Bonus" will help you maximise your TOGAF knowledge and keep your motivation levels high to complete the course.

Course Goals

  • Primary Goal: To help you pass the TOGAF 9.1 Foundation Exam
  • Secondary Goal: is to deepen your learning using accelerated learning techniques.
  • Tertiary goal: For you to have fun learning!

Course Description

The course has been created to take advantage of accelerated learning techniques such as

  • Mind Maps
  • Video & Audio
  • Mnemonics
  • Practice Revision Exams
  • Practice Revision Crosswords

to make your learning experience more enjoyable and more effective.

It is structured into 43 lectures (primarily videos) covering the examination curriculum with supplemental learning materials including 15 Practice Exams & 10 Knowledge tests to test your knowledge in detail.

Course Overview

  • The Core TOGAF Concepts
  • TOGAF Terms & Definitions
  • The Architecture Development Method (ADM)

These are the areas tested in the examination curriculum, we will focus on helping you learn what you need to know to pass the examination. There are plenty of class-room based courses out there costing thousands of pounds/dollars and I am confident this course stacks up to each and every one - at a fraction of the cost.

  • To understand TOGAF Standard Basic Concepts
  • To understand TOGAF Standard Core Concepts

How will Accelerated Learning Help You

This course has near 4.5 hours of video and audio to help you make sense of the TOGAF specification. You can of course go off and read the specification on your own, but you will find the specification is written in a very dry (technically "correct") and difficult to consume format.

The primary focus of the course is to help you pass the exam by covering/revising the specific areas of the TOGAF specification examined. This will help shave time off your own study efforts but the longer term goal of the course is to help you truly understand, retain and apply the material in your career.

This is why the course contains Mind Maps, Revision Crosswords as well as 25 practice exams and knowledge tests.

The accelerated learning resources and techniques in this course will help you pass your exam but more importantly learn faster, better and build upon your knowledge in the long term.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • 65 Lectures
  • 5+ hours of video (Including TOGAF In 30 course)
  • FREE Access to the TOGAF 2 Certification Course
  • 24 Mind Map files in PDF format covering course slides and Mind Map overviews
  • The course should take between 12 and 15 hours to complete (depending upon how much revision you undertake with the practice exams and revision exercises)
  • 23 Revision Crosswords - Crosswords are an excellent way to get your brain remembering in a different way (don't worry - they are not cryptic crosswords!) and are thus an excellent revision device.
  • 15 x 60 Minute Online Practice Exams (Simulated exams - just like the real thing)
    • Question Bank contains 237 questions
  • 10 x 60 Minute Online Knowledge Tests (Similar to Practice Exams but cover full TOGAF standard including Certified Level 2 curriculum)
    • Question Bank contains 415 questions
  • Mnemonics PDF detailing some key TOGAF concepts
  • "Your Career Boost Bonus" - This is an extra lecture which provides you a fantastic reason for keeping your motivation levels high and completing the course/taking the exam.

What are the requirements?

  • You need a willingness to invest your time for best results
  • This course is targeted to IT Professionals looking to undertake the TOGAF® 9.1 Certification (Part 1) exam.
  • It is also targeted to professionals who have already passed the exam but wish to revise and deepen their learning over time.
  • Typical roles include: Enterprise Architects, Technical Architects, Business Architects, Application Architects, Data Architects, Security Architects, Infrastructure Architects, Solution Architects, Integration Architects as well as Software Developers.
  • Those in Business roles (eg Business Analysts/Program Managers) will also find this course useful should they wish to undertake certification to complement their business experience and architecture life-cycle knowledge.

What this course is not:

This course is an accompaniment to the TOGAF specification. It is not a total replacement for study of the specification itself. It will however help you achieve your goals faster and learn at a deeper level.

Here we can see how the course is laid out overall.

The left hand side of the mindmap shows foundational concepts and definitions for the TOGAF Foundation course. We have some housekeeping to run through with Before We Begin followed by a short introduction of what you can expect with the course.

Basic TOGAF Concepts is next and from this point onwards, the content delivered focuses on what you need to know to pass the Foundation Exam.

We follow this section with Core Concepts and then Definitions and Terminology, I know definitions and terms can be a little dry but it is important you know the meanings behind the language used as you will be tested on definitions and meanings in exam situations.

Following the Definitions and Terminology section is a section I call Confusion & Contrast. As you go through the TOGAF specification, there will be terms used which can cause confusion – for example Method Vs Methodology, Goal Vs Objective etc…

This section will dive into concepts which can give rise to confusion and we will dive deeper into the differences and meanings using contrast and example to clarify. Some of the terms and concepts in this section may be explained ahead of their use in subsequent chapters – this is as intended as it is the most logical place to site the section and can help prime your brain and learning for what is to come.

The ADM section is the true core of the TOGAF standard, we will focus heavily on this section in particular as it constitutes over 50% of the exam itself. The remaining sections from Architecture Content Framework through to Architecture Capability Framework will also be delved into deeply to round out the course.

The Exam Preparation section does what it says on the tin, you will find advice, tips and strategies for how you can prepare for the exam itself.

Each section has been constructed carefully to be followed in a sequential fashion, by all means skip around the curriculum but only after you have run through the entire course once.

Course Objectives

I have 3 objectives for you with this course:

  • The primary objective is to pass the TOGAF foundation examination.
  • The secondary objective is to deepen your learning using accelerated learning techniques. We will use techniques and tools like mind maps, graphics, crosswords, online exams, mnemonics & knowledge tests to achieve this.
  • The Tertiary objective is for you to have fun learning. TOGAF is a particularly dry set of documentation so injecting it with colour and other enlivening techniques can only help

Reminder Regarding Bonuses

Last but not least is the Bonus Resources section. I don't want to spoil the surprises here just yet but if you are like me and you like opening up your presents straight away (even before Christmas day or birthdays), then by all means jump to the section sooner rather than later.

If you haven't already taken the TOGAF In 30 course, there is a free coupon link in the Bonuses section. I recommend you start there to get yourself familiarised with "How big the elephant (TOGAF) is".
