You are in good company
“The instructors knowledge of TOGAF and EA experiences make her the the perfect instructor. My previous TOGAF training and experiences provides me with a foundational understanding for the materials, and the lectures reenforced my current thinkings and practices. That said, I was quite comfortable with the allocation of time for topics and the length for course”
-TOGAF 9.2 Training Course Seattle July 2019
“The training was more than expected. Specifically to be tutored individually by a member of the Open Group TOGAF team who was actually instrumental in the approval of the standard was excellent. Judith’s knowledge and experience with TOGAF and with its implementation is outstanding. We had several discussions on some of the points so much so that we continued talking for about an hour after the webinar had formally concluded. I can only thank ATE Enterprises and more importantly Judith for the expert delivery of this webinar.”
