About the Certification Programme

Are you looking to expand your knowledge of Enterprise Architecture (EA) ? Are you trying to control business and technology development projects ? But you don't know for sure if your line-of-business applications support your business goals ? Do you need to learn EA best practices, so that you can maximize the benefits of EA for your organization ?

If so, then the new Enterprise Architecture Certification Program, offered by Telelogic and by Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Software Research International (ISRI), one of the world's leading IT education and research centers, and organised by I.T. Works in Belgium, is the program for you. "It is an honour and a pleasure to launch the EA-certification programme developed by Carnegie Mellon University here in Europe. Over the past several years, the demand for EA-competencies in Europe has increased tremendously, and it is time to roll out professional certification here now", says Dr. John Gøtze, the International President of the Association of Enterprise Architects, and instructor of the certification courses.

This Enterprise Architecture certification program will give you the knowledge and skills you need to successfully implement an EA initiative in the public or private sector. You will learn EA concepts, best practices, and tools from experienced Carnegie Mellon certified instructors. The Certification Program is built from three intensive courses which provide a comprehensive development program for Enterprise Architects: the 4-day "Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture" course, the 5-day "Applied Enterprise Architecture" course and this 3-day "Advanced Enterprise Architecture". You will attain "Certified Enterprise Architect" status after passing three intensive exams for each of these courses.
