This 5 day accredited course spans the breath of architecture concepts from business through data and applications and software to infrastructure. It concludes with two BCS professional certificate examinations.

After the course, attendees will understand many terms, concepts, processes and products used by enterprise and solution architects, understand what it means to apply architecture frameworks such as TOGAF and Zachman, and understand the place of modelling languages such as UML and ArchiMate. They will be able to fill the gap between high-level management frameworks and low-level software development lifecycles. The course includes class exercises and case study work.
The course concludes with two formal examinations set and marked by the BCS, who later send the exam results directly to delegates. The BCS Intermediate and Practitioner level Professional Certificates in Enterprise and Solution Architecture are well-respected qualifications that help people understand a variety of architecture frameworks.

Target Audience: The course is designed primarily for people in or approaching a career as a solution architect. It suits software architects, other technical specialists, business analysts and technical team managers who want to broaden their horizons. But it also suits anybody interested in the terms, concepts and practice of architecture; especially people wanting to act in an architect role, and their stakeholders. It is recommended that attendees have seven years’ experience of IS/IT work including contact with architects and architecture descriptions.

Approach: The course is intensive. It includes presentations, discussions, class exercises and exam preparation. It concludes with two examinations for the BCS professional certificates. Each is a formal 60 minute exam, comprising 40 multiple choice questions, run by a BCS representative. You may bring mobile devices, but must switch them off during presentations. The examinable reference model will be given to you in the course manual. Some pre-reading may be advised before the course.

The Combined IPCESA course includes both Intermediate and Practitioner examinations.
You can attend the whole course, which finishes with the Practitioner level BCS exam (3 to 4pm on Friday).
