This single course combines the study needed to take both exams connected to the ISEB Intermediate and Practitioner Certificates for Enterprise and Solution Architecture. It reviews the important terms and concepts, and then shows how to put them into practice, particularly in areas such as governance, design of building blocks, modelling techniques to visualise architecture, and building architecture specifications.

This is an intensive and complete course with two main objectives:
To gain a solid understanding of Enterprise and Solution Architecture terms and practice, and to prepare for two exams.

Both lecture and practical case-study sessions are held, and mock question are reviewed throughout. Delegates are provided with a revision programme to help them study in their own time, followed up by a group review. Two exams are taken at the end of the course.


On completion of this course, delegates will have an understanding of:

  • The main roles and goals of architecture
  • An explanation of both Enterprise and Solution context and architecture
  • Architecture governance
  • Techniques for describing architecture
  • An awareness of the most useful frameworks
  • Architecture Processes
  • The use of business, data, application and infrastructure components
  • Planning the implementation of architecture
