As one of three courses centred around the BCS Certificates for Enterprise and Solution Architecture, this one focuses on the Practitioner capability.
Various key practical issues are addressed - how to establish effective governance; modelling techniques for visualising architecture; using Building Blocks; creating an Architecture specification, to list just a few.
The main objectives of the course is to get some hands-on practice at building an Architecture Specification, and to prepare for the exam associated with the BCS Practitioner Certificate in Enterprise and Solution Architecture. The course is case-study based, with ample examples and practical sessions to show how to go about this task. A revision system is used and mock exam questions will be reviewed. An exam is taken at the end of the course.
Those people who are TOGAF 8 or 9 Certified Architects considering doing both the Intermediate and Practitioner courses as separate events, should be aware of the BCS pre-requisites that state that such delegates are exempted from the Intermediate exam, and so need only attend the Practitioner event.
