As one of three courses centred around the BCS Certificates for Enterprise and Solution Architecture, this one focuses on the Practitioner capability.

Various key practical issues are addressed - how to establish effective governance; modelling techniques for visualising architecture; using Building Blocks; creating an Architecture specification, to list just a few.

The main objectives of the course is to get some hands-on practice at building an Architecture Specification, and to prepare for the exam associated with the BCS Practitioner Certificate in Enterprise and Solution Architecture. The course is case-study based, with ample examples and practical sessions to show how to go about this task. A revision system is used and mock exam questions will be reviewed.

At the end of this course you will be able to use, in a practical way, the key terms and concepts of systems architecture, including:

  • Techniques for describing architecture
  • Architecture governance
  • Component-based (using building blocks) design and the use of business, data, application and infrastructure components
  • The Enterprise and Solution contexts
  • Planning the implementation of architecture, including Roadmaps and Project Plans

  • For the Foundation level there are no mandatory requirements for learners to be able to undertake this certified qualification.

  • For the Practitioner level it is recommended learners should have gained over six years familiarity with the IS/IT areas, which includes some contact with Architects and Architecture descriptions. Overall therefore this course is most suited to architects.

Eligibility for the Examination

It is recommended that candidates have more than 6 years’ experience of IS/IT work, with contact with architects and architecture descriptions. Candidates must hold either the BCS Intermediate Certificate in Enterprise and Solution Architecture, or the new BCS Foundation Certificate in Architecture Concepts and Domains, or have a current TOGAF 9 or a current TOGAF® Standard 10th Edition (level 2) certificate.
