WA1815 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. 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. 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. 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. 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…
