This course is for business, application, infrastructure and enterprise architects who are new to both ArchiMate and Enterprise Architect. It covers the ArchiMate business, application and technology layers and gives delegates experience of creating the standard ArchiMate viewpoint diagrams within Enterprise Architect.

Prerequisites: No prior Enterprise Architect or ArchiMate experience is required.
A background in enterprise architecture is helpful.

 
Equipment: For on-site course delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All delegates require access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect.
 

For webinar training sessions delegates need access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect with Internet connection and VoIP (a headset can be helpful for privacy in an office environment).

A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: www.sparxsystems.com/products/ea/trial.html

Course Style: 35% theory, 65% practical.
Each module is accompanied by paper and hands-on exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident using Enterprise Architect.
