TOGAF® Training: TOGAF® 9 Training Course (Level 1 and 2)

Web Age Solutions is your premiere provider for TOGAF® training.  This course covers TOGAF® 9.1.

As a full TOGAF® commercial licensee, we are authorized by the Open Group to deliver TOGAF® training using the official TOGAF® materials. We also bring our 15 years of experience in technical and IT training and our skilled instructors to build a useful and interesting learning experience. The course prepares you for the TOGAF® exam, but more importantly, it prepares you to think and act as an Enterprise Architect, and begin delivering solutions that support your functioning business with appropriate technology.

We’ve trained over 1000 architects in Enterprise Architecture, Solution Architecture, TOGAF®, and Business Architecture and we’ve delivered over 100 TOGAF® courses. Your Web Age instructor is a subject matter expert with real-world architecture experience, who will reinforce all learning through group exercises and discussions.

Upon completion of the training, students will be equipped to prepare for and pass the TOGAF® 9 Certified (Level 2) certification exam prescribed by the Open Group.

Optionally, you can add a fifth day for exam review (WA2309), and there are many follow-on courses available (See coursemap).

We offer multiple delivery options: our location, your location, Live Virtual Course, and coming soon, on-demand video.

Traditional classroom training has the advantage of allowing discussions between the students.  Since EA students often have extensive experience in software development and business analysis, students usually find discussions interesting and valuable.  

Live Virtual Training places some limitations on in-class discussions (just due to the nature of teleconferencing), but has the advantage of convenience - architects typically don’t need to travel to attend the course.

Video training offers the most convenience.  Students can view the videos on their own schedule and at any convenient pace.  You can also view the videos multiple times to lock-in the knowledge.  Online video training will generally be the most economical training options.

The TOGAF® 9.1 Certification consists of two exams which must be passed in order to become certified.  Passing one gives you nothing.

The level one exam tests your basic knowledge of TOGAF® and is heavily focused on ensuring you understand the TOGAF® terminology and the basic purpose of the TOGAF® components.

This exam is 40 multiple choice questions and is closed book.  You get a point for a correct answer and nothing for an incorrect answer.  The pass rate is approx. 60% although it can change so always check the Open Group web site before writing an exam as the current pass rates are always posted there.

The level 2 exam is much different from the level 1 exam.  It is 8 multiple choice questions however; don't think that makes it easy.  Each question contains a scenario which is about a page in length.  Then you have a question which is usually a single sentence.  Then you have 4 answers.  You get 5 points for the best answer, 3 points for the second best, 1 point for the third best, and 0 for the worst which we call “the distractor”.  Again the pass rate is approx. 60% but please check the web site before writing an exam as the pass rates can change.

Upon passing both exams, you will become TOGAF® certified and will be invited to join The Open Group.  That means you get access to their forums, a ton of support materials, and lots of invitations to seminars and webinars, many of which are free.

Web Age’s training courses are designed not just to prepare students for the TOGAF® certification exams (which are administered by a third party), but also to give students the practical tools for performing architectural work.

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Discuss the basic concepts of enterprise architecture and TOGAF® 9.1.
  • Discuss the features of TOGAF® and its methodology.
  • Take best advantage of how to use TOGAF® in their work.
  • Gain an understanding of the necessary body of knowledge to achieve certification by examination for TOGAF® 9 at Level 1 (TOGAF® 9 Foundation) or Level 2 (TOGAF® 9 Certified)


The target audience for TOGAF® 9 Certified (Level 1 and 2) training includes but is not limited to:

  • Individuals who require a deeper understanding of TOGAF® 9.1
  • Professionals who are working in an organization where TOGAF® 9.1 has been adopted and who need to participate in architecture projects and initiatives
  • Architects who will be responsible for developing architecture artifacts
  • Architects who wish to introduce TOGAF® 9.1 into an architecture practice
  • Architects who want to achieve a recognized qualification to demonstrate their detailed knowledge of TOGAF® 9.1


A prior knowledge of Enterprise Architecture is advantageous but not required
