About this course

The ArchiMate language enables Enterprise Architects to describe, analyse, and visualise the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way. Users of ArchiMate benefit from sharing a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organisational structures, information flows, IT systems, and technical infrastructure. ​

The latest version of the program is for the ArchiMate 3 certification, covering the 3.2 releases of the specification. ​

Individuals who have earned the ArchiMate Essentials 3.2 certification credential have proven to have up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the changes introduced to the ArchiMate Body of Knowledge in the ArchiMate Specification, Version 3.2.
