Things To Know Before Starting Your Course


Course Features - Overview

This accredited e-learning course provides you with recordings of the full lecture presentation as delivered for our accredited 4-day live TOGAF® 9 Prep Training (Levels 1 and 2) course (based on TOGAF version 9.2), along with the same e-materials provided to attendees of the live course. This course provides you with the knowledge needed for the "TOGAF 9 Certified" certification exams, and provides the voucher(s) needed to order and schedule the exams with the test provider, PearsonVUE (see the "Certification Information" section further below for additional details). The class recordings are similar to webinar recordings with high quality audio and HD video that shows full screen versions of the slides, and pointer interactions, as presented in class. This page presents and explains the lecture and knowledge check videos and materials in the same order they are presented in a live class, so you can essentially experience the full live class flow and content with the advantages of anytime/anywhere access and the ability to re-watch any portion of the course as desired. You can reach out via email with questions for the instructor at any time, and you can schedule live online meeting/phone hours (as allowed in the ordered course description) for instructor Q&A, review, or specific topic discussions, as you wish. Over the 6 month access period, the videos may be viewed anytime and anywhere, provided a 2 Mbps minimum internet connection exists, and any given video may be re-watched multiple times (subject to a total course bandwidth allocation that is equivalent to viewing the entire course three times); the course and study documents in the e-materials folders are not subject to any access period restrictions. All videos and materials are strictly for the personal use of the authorized user identified in the order, and no sharing, copying, or redistribution of the materials, videos, or access password to any other person is permitted.

Browser, OS, and Device Compatibility

Videos provided on this page can be viewed using the following browsers and operating systems:

  • Chrome version 80+ (recommended) on Windows 10, macOS, and Android 7+
  • Firefox version 74+ on Windows 10 and macOS
  • Edge - the new (2020) Chromium-based version 85+, on Windows 10 and macOS
  • Safari 13 on iOS, ipadOS, and macOS (note that Safari is the only browser supported on iOS and ipadOS)
  • Current versions of Microsoft's legacy browsers, Internet Explorer 11 and Edge (legacy non-Chromium version), should play the videos on most newer systems (hardware from 2016 or newer) running Windows 10, but playback is dependent on the machine's security (TPM) hardware and related OS configuration; due to these unique hardware dependencies and the lack of ongoing Microsoft maintenance of these browsers, we recommend using one of the other browser choices listed above if possible.

Other Requirements/Constraints:

  • HD screen resolution and a screen size of 12 inches or larger is highly recommended for optimal viewing (a few videos contain diagrams with finer details that may not be fully readable on screens under 12 inches), however the majority of the videos could be comfortably viewed on smaller screens
  • A sustainable internet download speed of at least 2 Mbps is recommended to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted video viewing experience; by HD streaming video standards, this is a very low minimum requirement and is aimed at supporting even relatively slow connection environments.
  • To prevent overruse of video bandwidth allocations, total viewing time over the access period is expected to be less than three times the total course duration (ie, equivalent to viewing the entire course three times); if this limit is approached, we reserve the right to curtail further viewing subject to a discussion and mutually acceptable approach to managing any remaining viewing time needed.

See also the section below for details on the features of the embedded video player and display of viewing statistics.

Video Player and Progress Tracking Features

When launching a video using the "View Video" or "Resume" buttons on this page, a responsive video player will appear at that point on the page with its size matched to fit the current browser window; if you resize your browser, the video player should automatically resize accordingly. When mousing over (or tapping) a video that has been started, a controls bar overlay will temporarily appear along the bottom of the video containing the following controls from left to right:

  • Play/Pause button (play/pause state will also toggle when mouse click occurs on the screen)
  • Mute/Unmute button and volume slider (slider is not present in Safari due to lack of iOS support for player volume controls; use device volume control instead)
  • Time Display: Current Playhead Position / Total Duration
  • Timeline/Seek Bar - Shows playhead position; click/tap at any point along the timeline to jump directly to that point in the video
  • Buttons for Jump-Back (-10 secs) and Jump-Ahead (+10 secs); hold the "shift" key to increase the jump time to 60 seconds
  • Playback speed control: Select 1X (normal speed), 1.25X, or 1.5X; audio is intelligible and maintains normal pitch at all 3 speeds
  • Fullscreen enter/exit button (note that when using Safari on iOS devices, the native iOS player controls will show when in fullscreen mode)
  • Keyboard shortcuts: "p" key for play/pause; "m" key for mute/unmute; "f" key to enter/exit fullscreen (note that this fullscreen shortcut is not supported on IE11), "esc" key can also be used to exit fullscreen, right/left arrow keys for jump-ahead/jump-back 10 seconds (use right/left arrow keys in combination with "shift" key to jump 60 seconds ahead or back)
  • "Resume" functionality: After closing a video that has not been completed, a "Resume" button will appear next to the regular "View Video" button allowing you to resume the video at a later time from the last playhead position (the resume time is displayed on the Resume button)
  • Viewing progress statistics: Each video section's title bar displays the total length of the video and the total accumulated viewed time (if any). A green checkmark is also displayed in the title bar if the video has been "completed". An overall 'Video Progress" statistics block is displayed for the entire course above the the course section; this block displays the total accumulated viewed time for all videos, videos completed, and percent of course completion (based on time).

See section further above for browser compatibility and other system requirements.

Passwords, Watermarks, Use Limits, and Other Protections

A small, semi-transparent watermark text block will appear in the lower part of the video display for several seconds at various points in each video; this watermark contains a copyright and use restriction notification and is designed to have minimal impact on your viewing experience. Also, as mentioned in the use restrictions and privacy notice at the top of this page, each time a video is accessed the event is logged along with user identification, user IP, user device information, and video viewing statistics. Due to the Digital Rights Management and access protection approaches used, the password issued to you cannot be changed directly by you; however, on request, we can change it for you or remind you of the current password. The password must be entered each time you open the page in a new browser tab/window, but the page will remain available and will not expire as long as the page remains open in your browser. Total viewing time over the access period is expected to be less than three times the total course duration (ie, equivalent to viewing the entire course three times); if this limit is approached, we reserve the right to curtail further viewing subject to a discussion and mutually acceptable approach to managing any remaining viewing time needed.

Downloading Your E-Materials

In a prior email from eLearning Launchpad, you should have received instructions for downloading the "e-materials" zip file that contains important materials such as the lecture slides, cert prep study guides, practice exams, and other useful reference information that complement the lecture recordings. If you have not yet downloaded and unzipped the e-materials, please do so before beginning the course, as these materials should be used for reference and supplemental study as you progress through the course topics (each course topic in the course sections below identify the documents and sections that apply). If you have not received the instructions for downloading the e-materials, please contact us.

Please note that these and all other materials you receive for this course are licensed for your personal use only, as a paid user of this course package, and may not be copied or distributed to others, and may not be used for any purpose other than your personal reference and study. All e-material downloads and video views are logged along with user identity, user device, user IP address, and viewing time information.

Progressing Through the Course and Accessing Key Documents

Accessing Key Documents: The video in item "E", "E-Materials Overview" in the Course Kickoff and Orientation section, provides a walkthrough of the folders and key documents contained in the e-materials. Note that each course topic in the course sections below identify the documents and sections that apply to that topic. The most important documents to have available for reference while progressing through the course are as follows:

  • Lecture Slides Book 1 and 2 PDFs (two equally sized PDF volumes) - These two PDFs contain all the course lecture slides as are seen in the videos (some slides are for reference/review and are not presented in the lecture). Users should review all slides; the lecture, while always covering the key points of the material, does not present every slide in some modules; for example, a key graphic/concept slide may be used in some parts of the lecture as a better way to present major points that appear on nearby word slides (such word slides are included in the deck for completeness and to serve as a reference when later reviewing the material).
    Each course topic item presented on this page indicates the applicable Lecture Slide Book (1 or 2) and the applicable lecture module number (the module numbers, eg. M1, M14, F7, etc., are listed in the slide book table of contents and on the title slide of each slide module). The two slide book PDFs each have a Table of Contents page listing all slide modules, and also use PDF bookmarks to allow each slide module to be quickly accessed from the bookmarks pane in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Both Lecture Slide books can be found in the top-level e-materials folder named "Lecture Slides Books and Reference Materials Binder". The password(s) for these documents is provided in the e-materials download email from eLearning Launchpad.
  • Reference Materials Binder PDF - This PDF provides several sections of quick reference materials which are mostly excerpts of key lecture slides/graphics and selected chapters from the TOGAF standard. The first section is particularly useful for referencing high resolution color slides of key diagrams - such as the most detailed diagrams of the Content Metamodel that have small fonts in some areas. This PDF can be found in the top-level e-materials folder named "Lecture Slides Books and Reference Materials Binder". The password(s) for these documents is provided in the e-materials download email from eLearning Launchpad.
  • Class Posters PDF - This PDF contains 5 high resolution "poster pages" containing graphics of key concepts mentioned frequently throughout the course - great for quick-reference; these graphics show the ADM cycle, the Enterprise Continuum and Architecture Repository, an intermediate view of the Content Metamodel (showing all building block types), the two Reference Models (TRM and IIIRM), the high level table of contents from the TOGAF standard showing the 6 Parts and major sub-topics within each Part. This PDF can be found in the top-level e-materials folder named "Additional References".
  • Foundation Study Guide, and Certified Study Guide - These PDFs are perhaps your most important resources for supplemental self-study, review, and exam preparation. These Study Guides are from the TOGAF 9 "Study Pack" from The Open Group®, and were written specifically for exam preparation (they condense the standard down into easy to read chapters and identify the key learning points along the way). Each Study Guide contains practice exams and answer keys in their appendices for the respective certification level. Each course topic presented below, where appropriate, makes reference to the corresponding chapter(s) to facilitate pre-reading and/or review as you prefer (the course itself covers the key points, but these Study Guides provide a complete narrative style which can be helpful when first learning or reviewing topics prior to your exams). These PDFs can be found in this e-materials folder path: TOGAF9-Self-Study-Pack-4thEd-from The Open Group > Study-Guides

Moving Through the Recorded Course Topics: Below on this page, the course is presented in two major sections: the "Kickoff and Orientation" section, and the "Main Course" section. Each section is sub-divided into a series of lettered/numbered topics that align with the flow and content of the live course. For each of these topics, a video of that portion of the course is provided, along with a summary description of the topic and references to the Lecture Slide Book module(s) and supplemental Study Guide chapter(s) associated with the topic. You may want to have the referenced Lecture Slides Book PDF opened up to the lecture module number indicated (eg, M14, F7, etc.) as a means of following along, being able to see prior and upcoming slides, and making notes/annotations on the slides if desired (the slide book pages can also be printed as desired). Note that in the lecture video, not every slide is presented, which is another reason to have the slide book open so that such slides can be viewed as reinforcement to the presenation (certain slides are skipped in the lecture because the key points they provide are discussed when viewing a summary or graphic slide that is better suited for the lecture presentation). The referenced Study Guide chapter mentioned in most topics is a supplemental resource for pre-reading or later reading when reviewing for exams. For the best learning experience, it is recommended to follow the sequence of topics in the order they are presented on this page; note, however, to allow flexibility when reviewing, no sequence is enforced and the videos can be viewed, or re-viewed in any order and at any time. Note that to prevent overruse of video bandwidth allocations, total viewing time over the access period is expected to be less than three times the total course duration (ie, equivalent to viewing the entire course three times); if this limit is approached, we reserve the right to curtail further viewing subject to a discussion and mutually acceptable approach to managing any remaining viewing time needed.

Knowledge Checks and Practice Exams: Clearly marked "Knowledge Check" videos are interspersed throughout the course, and should be viewed when reached to reinforce your learning and test your recall of the key points from the preceding lecture module(s). Each Knowledge Check video topic is identified in its header, and the video consists of the instructor presenting and discussing a series of multiple choice questions that cover aspects of a certain Level 1 (Foundation) topic area. For each question, the instructor presents the question and sometimes includes helpful hints on how to interpret the question -- at this point the video can be paused while you consider the answer choices -- the instructor then goes on to identify the correct/best answer choice, explaining why it is the best choice, and also often explaining why the other choices are not the best. These discussions provide a great review from many angles and often go well beyond the narrow scope of the question. Over 80 such questions are discussed throughout the course, and they track closely with the questions provided in the associated Foundation Study Guide chapters (answer keys are provided for these chapter questions in an appendix of the Foundation Study Guide). After the course, you should complete the Level 1 and Level 2 practice exams on your own; these are provided in the appendices of the Foundation Study Guide and Certified Study Guide, respectively, along with answer keys that explain the correct answer and the associated reasoning (the Level 2 scenario-based practice questions in the Certified Study Guide have an entire table devoted to explaining the best to worst answer choices for each practice question).

Certification Exams and Voucher Information

This course not only provides you with a thorough understanding of TOGAF, but is also designed to provide the knowledge needed to pass the TOGAF "Part 1" and "Part 2" exams (corresponding to certification "Level 1" and "Level 2" respectively) that lead to the "TOGAF 9 Certified" certification - this is the highest level of TOGAF certification. This accredited course provides you with the exam voucher(s) needed to order and schedule (via PearsonVUE) the exam(s) at a time/date after the course that is convenient for you. We recommend allowing at least a few days for self-study time after the video lecture portion of the course is completed before taking the exams; this review should make use of the two included "Study Guide" documents as they were written specifically for exam preparation and provide a great way to refresh on the key learning points. Depending on the type of voucher(s) we provide to you (based on your preference), the exams will be taken either as a "combined" exam in one scheduled session (Part 1 and Part 2 exams are taken back to back), or as two separate exams scheduled at different times. The nature of the "combined" approach vs. the "separates" approach is discussed in the following paragraphs.

The "Combined" exam approach:The "combined" exam is generally seen as the most efficient approach, and requires that both exams be taken back-to-back in a single sitting, 60 minutes for Part 1, and 90 minutes for Part 2. Exams are conducted at PearsonVUE test centers (they are the official providers of The Open Group certification exams, and are located in or near most major cities, globally). Scheduling is done using the test center locator and scheduling system on the PearsonVUE website. The exams may also be taken at your home or office using the Pearson "OnVUE" online proctoring system (strict requirements apply to the home/office area used; for details, see https://home.pearsonvue.com/theopengroup/onvue ). The nature of the exams is explained in a video in the course section below (Main Course, Item 1: Certification and Exams). When you are ready to book your exam, or if you would simply like to explore the booking steps and/or check for nearby PearsonVUE test centers and their exam times for the "TOGAF 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 1" exam" (OG0-093), you can start at the link below, and the instructions there will get you onto the correct PearsonVUE page (note you will have to create a free web account with The Open Group in order to login to PearsonVUE). Here is the link for starting (or exploring) the exam booking and scheduling process:
https://certification.opengroup.org/take-exam
Note: The "combined" exam approach described above is intended to lead only to "TOGAF 9 Certified" and does not provide a "Foundation"-only option (ie, if you were to pass Part 1 and fail Part 2, you will not be awarded "Foundation" certification as some might assume --- only "Certified" can be awarded, which would occur when the Part 2 exam is passed via a later re-take in this case). Exam retakes are allowed for either of the two parts of the exam (ie, you get "credit" for whichever one is passed), but the retake will potentially be an additional cost for you if we do not have retake vouchers available at the time (we are allocated a certain allowance), and, in any case, you must wait at least 1 month before taking the retake exam.

An alternative approach exists that allows the two exams to be taken on separate dates: The "separates" approach will likely require a greater overall time commitment, but has some advantages of interest to some people. You would separately book the Part 1 exam (OG0-091) and the Part 2 exam (OG0-092) on different dates of your choice (Part 1 is a prerequisite for Part 2 of course). The main advantages of separate exam bookings on different dates are more focused study prep for each exam, a shorter exam session in each instance, and the possibility of achieving just "Foundation" certification if you choose to only take the Part 1 exam and stop (or want to hold off on the Part 2 for some period of time). The disadvantages are an overall process that takes longer to complete and likely involves more total preparation and study time given that the effort is spread over two separately scheduled events (note that Part 2 builds on Part 1 knowledge, so a person should still be fresh on their Level 1 knowledge going into the Part 2 exam). The links provided above for learning more about OnVUE and for starting the exam booking process would also be used if booking seperate exams. If separate exams are taken, we recommend not scheduling the Part 2 exam until after the Part 1 exam is passed to avoid potential difficulties if the Part 1 exam is not passed on the first attempt.

In our experience, most people prefer and do well with the "combined" exam approach as it is generally a more efficient and faster path to "TOGAF 9 Certified".


Voucher issuance and type selection:

After you have viewed a signficant portion of the course videos as defined below, we then provide you with the exam voucher(s). Note that we must order the vouchers from The Open Group shortly after receiving your original course order, so we would typically have them on hand within 21 days after your course order, and we then hold them for you until the course progress criteria outlined below are met. If you expect to be completing your course and needing to schedule your exam within the first 3 weeks, please contact us to arrange expedited voucher acquisition. Shortly after receiving your course order, and before ordering your voucher(s), we will ask your for your preference of voucher type ("combined" or separates) - see the voucher type explanations below; if you do not respond with a preference within 2 weeks of your course order, we will acquire the default "combined" voucher type for you.

Vouchers are provided after the following specific requirements have been met:

1) You must have completed the viewing of the "Main Course" videos at least up through item 18 "Architecture Governance", subject to verification by our video access tracking system. This represents approximately 60% completion of the Main Course in terms of total video duration. This requirement for a certain level of course completion strikes a necessary balance between demonstrating that you are well on your way and committed to completing the course, while allowing the lead time needed for you to schedule an exam date/time with Pearson VUE. You would typically be expected to schedule your exam after full completion of the course, and the chosen exam date should allow for adequate additional time to review and refresh using the provided Study Guides and other materials.

2) After the partial course completion milestone described above is reached, you must email us to request your voucher(s). When requesting that we issue your voucher(s) to you, you must confirm that you have in fact completed the course at least through the milestone described in "1" above and are comfortable with your level of understanding of the course so far (if not, any questions or topic areas that are not understood can be addressed with the instructor at this point or at later points within the access period).

3) Once items 1 and 2 above are complete, we will issue your exam voucher code(s) to you via email. When you receive your voucher code(s) from us, you will then be free to book your exams with Pearson VUE at your convenience. The voucher code(s) are valid for approximately 1 year from the date of your original course order.

A note on retail exam costs: Exam vouchers are included with this accredited e-learning course, so exams will not be an added cost for you (with the exception of certain exam retake scenarios where free retake vouchers might not be available). Just for awareness, the initial retail cost of the exams for someone who buys them on their own (ie, without the benefit of vouchers from an accredited course) is $550 for the "combined" exam and $720 total for two separate exams, payable to Pearson VUE at the time of scheduling.

Contacting Us for Support and Questions

Recommended Pre-Reading

To gain a general sense of the scope and key ideas of the TOGAF standard, especially if TOGAF is very new to you, we recommend that you pre-read a couple of "big picture" chapters (roughly 20 pages). In the e-materials folder (downloaded and unzipped per the "Getting Ready..." information above), locate the Study Guide for TOGAF 9 Foundation. This file is named Foundation(L1)StudyGuide--B180p.pdf and is located in this folder path within the e-materials: TOGAF9-Self-Study-Pack-4thEd-from The Open Group® > Study-Guides > TOGAF9_Foundation_SG
Please read Chapter 2 - Basic Concepts, and Chapter 3 - Core Concepts.
Note that this material is certainly well covered in the course videos, so this pre-reading is not essential, but you may find that it helps you digest the course materials a bit more easily.

Simple EA Model - An Example Using ArchiMate® Length: 16m

Many people are curious about the way things can be modeled architecturally for EA projects, so we address this briefly upfront to help create a mental calibration for later topics. A simple example (a snippet from a larger project) is presented to illustrate some typical traits of EA models and the need to show alignment and relationships between the various layers and domains of architecture. This sample model happens to have been created using ArchiMate® - a popular, open standard, and easy-to-learn modeling language designed specifically for EA (the only standard of its kind). Of course, similar models can be created using the out-of-the-box TOGAF-defined entities or some other EA modeling framework. ArchiMate as a "language" complements the TOGAF method nicely, but it is not part of the TOGAF standard and is outside the scope of TOGAF certification - ArchiMate discussed here and elsewhere in the course simply because it is a uniquely robust and straightforward EA modeling standard that many organizations are using with and without TOGAF.
Reference: Course Kickoff & Orientation Slides PDF (in e-materials*); see also the ArchiMate® subfolders under the "Additional References" folder in the e-materials for related case studies and documentation.

Building Blocks (General) Length: 58m

Building blocks are the modular, abstracted elements used to describe and model real world things (entities) in the various architectural domains of business, data, applications, and technology (things like value streams, processes, functions, organizations, roles, data entities, application components, technology components, services, etc.). This module covers the general characteristics of building blocks and focuses on the two major kinds of building blocks: Architecture Building Blocks (ABB) and Solution Building Blocks (SBB). The "Content Framework and Metamodel" video that comes later in the course details the many specific types of building blocks that should be considered in each of the architecture domains.

Architecture Views and Viewpoints Length: 41m

The key concepts of stakeholders, views, and viewpoints are explained. In every architecture project, it is important to understand and communicate with stakeholders in an effective way. Views and viewpoints provide a means to precisely communicate various aspects of the architecture in an understandable way based on the specific interests of each stakeholder. The various types of TOGAF "artifacts" are also introduced because they can be used as the basis for developing viewpoints. These concepts are key to the Stakeholder Management technique discussed later in the course.

Enterprise Continuum, and Tools Length: 1hr 42m

The Enterprise Continuum concept is explained, with a focus on the two specializations known as the Architecture Continuum and Solutions Continuums. The primary purpose of these "continuums" is to provide a scheme for classifying architectural assets (models or other materials present in the Repository) in terms of how general purpose or how specialized they are, and how they relate to or support each other; this classification schemes provides a means to increase re-use and increases understanding of how reusable things have been, or can be used to build out new, more specialized architectures and solutions that are based on best practice. A discussion on "Tools" (eg. modeling tools for architects) is also included as a somewhat separate topic toward the end of this video.

Content Framework and Metamodel Length: 1hr 37m

The module briefly recaps the purpose and concepts from the overall Content Framework (purpose of building blocks, artifacts, deliverables as the major kinds of work products), and then turns to focus on the main topic, the Content Metamodel, which is a standardized definition of building block/entity types (and their relationships) that enables modeling consistency and rules-based automation in tools. The Content Metamodel defines all the many specific types of building blocks (entities) that could be defined and modeled in each of the four domains as well as the relationships between them that would typically be of interest (examples of building block/entity types include value streams, business capabilities, processes, functions, organizations, roles, data entities, application components, technology components, services, etc.). The core metamodel entities (the minimum set) and metamodel extensions (optional sets of additional building block types) are differentiated and described. Finally, the many types of suggested artifacts are discussed (these are the diagrams, matrices, and catalogs that could be produced based on the building block types). Note that this metamodel, like most things in TOGAF, can be tailored to suit your needs, or even completely replaced with a robust EA modeling language standard like ArchiMate®.

Preliminary Phase (incl. Principles Technique) Length: 48m

This module provides a detailed description of the Preliminary Phase of the ADM; the "Principles" technique is also detailed here. As in all the detailed phase lecture modules, the phase objectives, general approach, steps, and inputs and outputs are described. Note that "inputs" to Preliminary are the pertinent current information available within the business, and the "outputs" are information/deliverables that would be generated in the steps and fed forward to Phase A and subsequent ADM phases; additional insights on the content of key deliverables can be gleaned from these input/output sections. The lecture on the "steps" of the phase is made while viewing the steps graphic slide (shown visually as a stair-step diagram), so that the key points for each step are made in the context of all the other steps; therefore, most of the step "word slides" are skipped in the presentation because all the key points from those slides are made while showing the steps graphic -- these word slides can be viewed (via the lecture slide book PDFs) for reference or supplemental study as desired during the course or in the future when reviewing.

Business Scenarios - Technique Length: 19m

The Business Scenarios technique is described as a means to clarify business objectives and requirements where needed. This is 1 of 14 ADM "techniques" defined in TOGAF. This technique is described at this point in the course because it is typically used initially in Phase A, so we discuss it just prior to reaching the Phase A module. This technique may be used again in Phase B to refine the analysis or to evaluate potential architectural changes.

This module covers domain-specific considerations for Phase C - Information Systems (applications and data domains) and Phase D - Technology Architecture. This discussion is on the different focus areas of the 3 remaining domains, but the 9 steps used for each domain are not discussed again because they are identical to the 9 steps that were presented in detail in the Phase B Business Architecture module above; for that reason, slide modules M18 and M20 are not presented because they are highly redundant with nearly identical step descriptions (these modules are, however, included in the Lecture Slides Book 2 PDF for completeness and future reference).

Reference Models (TRM and IIIRM) Length: 30m

The most important points about the TOGAF Reference Models (TRM and IIIRM) are presented in terms of knowledge needed for certification. The details of these Reference Models are somewhat dated, so the material serves as a form of historical reference. Nonetheless, these reference models still serve to remind us of the timeless importance of 1) having a robust platform for providing shared, general purpose technical services to business applications (and having a taxonomy for thinking about and managing those services) as the TRM does, and 2) having systems that can facilitate loosely-coupled "boundaryless information flow" between applications and database systems in different legacy silos (as the IIIRM does), where there is a need for integrated information and work flows across those silos.

"Iteration" and "Levels" are explained as 2 of the 3 ADM "guidelines" defined in TOGAF that are in scope for certification. As "guidelines", the focus is on using the ADM in different scenarios and for moving across different dimensions of the architecture landscape with successive, separately scoped ADM cycles. The concept of "Classes of Engagement" is also discussed as a way of using various types of ADM phase iteration to support certain ongoing business processes (eg, strategic planning) without the need for a full or formal ADM initiative.

RECAP KNOWLEDGE CHECK: Terms and Definitions Length: 12m

Several multiple choice questions are provided to check your understanding of key Level 1 (Foundation) material discussed in the prior module(s). At the start of each question, the instructor presents the question and may, in some cases, dissect it and provide some hints. At this point you can pause the video and choose what you feel is the best answer. On resuming, the instructor identifies the correct answer, explains why it is the best choice, and often also explains why the other answer choices are not the best choice and how they do or do not relate. For further review of the related material, you can read the Study Guide chapter identified as a reference, below.

Reviewing and Preparing for Your Certification Exams

Once you have worked through all the topics of the course above, including viewing the videos, the associated lecture slide modules from the Lecture Slide Books, and the Study Guide chapters referenced for added clarity, we highly recommend allocating at least a few days before taking your exams to allow for a few hours per day for review and refresh, as well as taking and learning from the additional practice exams available to you. We recommend using the two Study Guides (Foundation and Certified) referenced throughout the course as the most complete way of reviewing - especially for topics that may not be as clear in your mind; these Study Guides were written specifically for exam preparation. The appendices in each of the two Study Guides contain practice exams for Level 1 and Level 2 respectively, along with answer keys that explain the best answer choices. The two Study Guide PDFs can be found in this e-materials folder path: TOGAF9-Self-Study-Pack-4thEd-from The Open Group > Study-Guides
