Course Objectives and Benefits:
This TOGAF Awareness course provides all the need-to-know knowledge about The Open Group’s TOGAF standard. The course provides a thorough introduction to TOGAF, including its content, context and processes, as well as the competitive advantages TOGAF can offer. The potential benefits of TOGAF are huge, but you do not have to be a certified practitioner, decision-maker or major stakeholder to benefit from an awareness of what enterprise architecture and TOGAF can do for a business. This course is perfect for anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of TOGAF, learn how to ‘sell’ TOGAF within an organization, or simply learn more about TOGAF before committing to more costly and time consuming certification prep courses and examinations.
The Open Group TOGAF Standard is focused on planning, defining, implementing, and governing enterprise architecture across the business, data, applications, and technology domains. TOGAF takes a high-level approach to architectural design, and relies heavily on modularized building blocks, integration, standardization and the use of proven technologies, products and frameworks.
This course is split into four modules that provide a solid introduction to the TOGAF standard. Completing this course will make students aware, confident and informed about exactly what the TOGAF standard is, how it works, its background, and what it can do for any organization. For details on course content, view the Detailed Course Topics Outline below on this page.
1) As a basic awareness course, there are no formal certifications or exams associated with this course; however, interactive, automatically graded quizzes are distributed through the course as an informal means of assessing understanding of key learning points.
2) This course was created prior to the TOGAF 9.2 update that occurred in 2018, however the changes from 9.1 to 9.2 are relatively minor and have little impact at the overview level of this course as the fundamentals of TOGAF have not changed (9.2 is primarily about restructuring for ease of maintenance and enhancements/additions in the area of business architecture and security); if interested in details about the changes in TOGAF 9.2, please visit the TOGAF 9.2 FAQ page.

- are in a role which requires understanding of TOGAF, its content, context, processes and benefits but are not required to become a certified practitioner

Details follow:
TOTAL-BASED DISCOUNTS for our Self-Paced e-Learning Courses
The total amount of any order you place with us determines the discount percentage applied to any self-paced e-learning courses contained in the order. Your order, whether via the online ordering/payment system here on this site, or via traditional PO, may consist of any number of e-learning courses at various quantities and/or other types of courses and products we offer. The total-based discount brackets are as follows:
5% off e-learning if order total is $2,000 to $5,999 (use coupon code EL-5 )
10% off e-learning if order total is $6,000 to $9,999 (use coupon code EL-10 )
If planning order(s) over $10,000 please contact us --- and also note our 15% - 40% SPECIAL PACKAGE DISCOUNTS described further below.
Determination of Order Total: Any course(s) or other products in your order, at the quantities specified in the order, all count toward the order total range thresholds above; i.e., even an item that is not an e-learning course counts toward the threshold, such as a registration for a public instructor-led TOGAF course.
Discount Applicability: When a total order amount is in the ranges defined above, the specified discount is applied only to the self-paced e-learning courses in the order. While instructor-led course(s) in an order do count toward the total order thresholds, the above discounts are not applied to instructor-led courses. These total-based discounts cannot be applied in combination with any other discount offer, other coupon codes, or other special promotions. Note that if you are interested in ordering a private instructor-led course in combination with one or more self-paced e-learning courses, consider the “15% - 40% Special Package Discounts” described further below.
Ordering Methods for Discounts
Orders via Cart: If using our convenient online order/payment system here on our site, simply enter and apply the appropriate coupon code (indicated above) on the Cart page, being sure that all item quantities are properly set before applying the coupon code. After applying, the proper coupon code, the cart will automatically update to reflect the reduced prices and total resulting from the discounts.
Orders via PO: If you cannot take advantage of our convenient online ordering process and need to place your order via a traditional PO, we will offer/apply the same discount policy described above in our quotation.
Discounts for Multiple Orders Over a Time Period: If circumstances result in you distributing your course purchases across multiple orders over a period of time (either via Cart or PO), you can still partially benefit from the discount policy described above. We will allow the total of your prior orders placed within the last 6 months to be applied toward meeting the above thresholds for discounts on new self-paced e-learning course orders. Just contact us before placing any additional orders and we’ll provide you special coupon codes for the Cart (or special quotations for a PO) that reduce the discount thresholds for the new order by the amount of your previous orders from the prior 6 months.
15% - 40% SPECIAL PACKAGE ELEARNING DISCOUNTS for clients who book a 4-day private instructor-led course:
- 15% discount on all elearning course orders (of $20,000 or less) placed within 6 months of any private instructor-led course booking of any class size (even 1-on-1 classes),
- 40% discount on any single elearning course of choice (one user) ordered within 6 months of any 4-day, private, instructor-led course booking of 4 or more attendees; every additional 4 attendees at the same instructor-led course qualifies the organization for another 40% discount on any single elearning course (one user); example: a 4-day, private, instructor-led course booking for 12 attendees qualifies the organization to purchase any 3 elearning courses (for any 3 users) at a 40% discount - these 3 users may be different people in the organization, or may be among those who attended the private course.
These special package discounts are great opportunities for organizations that want to extend TOGAF-related training via self-paced e-learning to other peripheral or remote individuals or groups that do not need, or cannot participate in the more intensive live instructor-led training – the anytime/anywhere access to e-learning courses can greatly increase the reach and accessibility of the training across the organization. Alternatively, some e-learning courses serve as excellent supplemental, deeper-dive, or refresher training for those who have already attended private instructor-led training (example: the “Implementation: TOGAF” elearning course can serve as a more practitioner-oriented supplement for those who have attended a private instructor-led TOGAF certification prep course).
If interested in either of these special package discounts, just contact us about your plans, and whether you intend to order via PO or via our Cart, and we will coordinate with you to ensure that the appropriate discount of choice is applied to the qualifying self-paced e-learning courses you order after your private course is booked.
For information on our very affordable, high quality, instructor-led TOGAF certification-prep course offerings (online or onsite, private 1-on-1 or groups of 2+), please start with the overview provided on the eLearning Launchpad home page.
Special Package Discount Applicability: Applies as stated above to qualifying self-paced elearning courses ordered within the 6 month period that follow the placement of a paid private instructor-led course order with us (or issuance of an approved PO for same). The 15% and 40% Special Package Discounts described above cannot be applied in combination, nor can either of these discounts be applied in combination with any other discount offer, other coupon codes, or other special promotions that do not allow additional discounts.
The gift card offer described below cannot be used in combination with other discounts or promotions, such as the elearning discounts described above.
