Course Introduction

TOGAF® 9.1 Foundation course is designed according to the rules and regulations set by The Open Group so that the delegates get an in-depth understanding of the TOGAF® Framework. The training helps the delegates understand how to apply Architecture Development Methods (ADM) and architecture governance in Enterprise Architecture Development. The TOGAF® ADM is the outcome of various professionals practising TOGAF® in real-life. TOGAF® ADM is a method for developing and managing the lifecycle of enterprise architecture and is the central part of the TOGAF® architecture. The exam voucher is included in this course.

Who should take this course

The candidates who wish to gain knowledge about Enterprise Architecture should attend this course.


TOGAF® is the open Enterprise Architecture standard used to improve business efficiency. The TOGAF® 9.1 Certified qualification is achieved through passing two exams. The TOGAF® 9.1 Foundation certification can be achieved by passing just the first exam. Any framework that relies on the BDAT-stack is unfit for almost any purpose in present-day enterprise-architecture. TOGAF® deals with this problem.


  • Exam Type: Closed Book Exam
  • Minimum Pass Marks:55%
  • Exam Duration: 60 Minutes
