About the course...

In this hand's-on modeling course, we develop the science behind EA, as derived from the Zachman Framework Ontology. We'll be looking at real-life examples and case studies from real consulting projects and finally give you the ability to answer the question "how do I use The Zachman Framework?"

We "workshop" how to build and implement PRIMITIVE models and then actually see that once you get some primitives built, then creating and changing the composite models and implementations in order to get at General Management problems is quite simple.

We explore this by using several methodologies and tools that will help you "implement" the Zachman concepts in your enterprise. Understanding this "science" offers great capability to EAs for analysis and simulation solutions in their enterprise. It is a different EA paradigm.

This Level 1 course not only prepares you to take the Level 1 Zachman® exam in order to obtain your Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) designation, but also prepares you to present your case study for designation as a Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Practitioner (Level 2).

What you get...

The Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect program enables working professionals to develop the theoretical and technical skills needed in the 21st century workplace. More and more companies are looking for employees or consultants who can demonstrate command and deliver results in this wide body of knowledge. Some of those now even making Zachman Framework™ certification a requirement.

A distinctive element of this program is "reality-based learning," or the process of integrating theory with work and life experience. Practical in its design, the Zachman Certified™ Courses gives today's Enterprise Architects the opportunity to strengthen their skills as well as broaden their understanding of industry trends and the use of The Zachman Framework™. This program grants a professionally relevant certification, opening up opportunities for career advancement and enhanced marketability. It is also a valuable tool for companies and organizations striving to set a higher standard for internal and external performance assessment, establishing hiring criteria, and improved market positioning.

Certification requires taking the necessary Zachman courses and passing of the objective Zachman Enterprise Architecture Examination. This is a life-long commitment to professionalism in your chosen career in the IS/IT field. Your certification is equivalent to the same level of credential as available for Doctors, Accountants and Engineers.

Once certification is complete, each Zachman Certified™ – Enterprise Architect is searchable by anyone on Zachman.com as well as their digital badge. Their listing will include their achieved Zachman Certified™ level (1, 2, 3 or 4), if their status is current, along with their unique Zachman Certified™ seal with embedded Architect ID.
