Announcement: Carnegie Mellon University and Telelogic Collaborate on Enterprise Architecture Certification Course Series, Coming to Europe
The Enterprise Architecture Certification Program, offered by Telelogic and Carnegie Mellon University‘s Institute for Software Research International ISRI, “will give you the knowledge and skills you need to successfully implement an EA initiative in the public or private sector”.
The program was launched last year in the US, and I’m pleased to announce, that it will now come to Europe.
I’ve made a deal with CMU and Telelogic, and will be in charge of the execution, i.e., be the instructor.
We’re launching the program down in Antwerp, Amsterdam and Brussels. We’re looking at other locations, and are open to requests. The scheduled courses for now are:
EA: Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture
10-13 Septermber, Bruxelles (full)
24-27 September, Antwerp
12-15 November, Amsterdam
EA: Applied Enterprise Architecture Concepts
8-11 October, Antwerp
14-18 January 2008, Antwerp
EA: Advanced Enterprise Architect Concepts
20-22 November, Antwerp
19-21 March 2008, Antwerp
The three-level structure of the courses is based on a set of EA Knowledge and Skills Areas (KSAs), that identify what enterprise architects need to know to do their jobs at various levels of the organization (see the top level of ISRI’s EA-KSA List), and specific learning points within each KSA are used to develop the teaching objectives in each course.
The program curriculum is based on the 350 learning points associated with the CIO Council EA competency matrix, and hence aligned with the 42 EA learning objectives in the 2006 Clinger-Cohen Core Competencies and Learning Objectives.
The comprehensive curriculum is compiled from the experience and best practices of top organizations worldwide, by Dr Scott Bernard and staff at Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute for Software Research International. Scott has written the EA text book, which I’m using in my university EA masters class, which roughly equals the level 1 course.
On the certification program, candidates can attain the title Certified Enterprise Architect after passing three intensive course exams.
I’m really looking forward to running the program. Please spread the word!
