Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect Intermediate Training

Building on the Enterprise Architect Introductory course, the EA Intermediate course is a mix of lecture, discussion, and lab work that teaches participants how to use some of the advanced features of EA, including some of the value-added diagrams and elements that go beyond the basic capabilities in ArchiMate.  The case study that was started in the Introductory course will be used as the starting point for this course.  This course is supported by a Tips And Tricks model that will be reviewed as the last module of the course
