    TOGAF Certification is designed to test candidates' confidence and extensive knowledge of one of the key standards of the Open Group, known as TOGAF. Itís an open enterprise architecture standard applied by the leading global organizations to advance business efficiency. Thus, several accreditation options are available here, namely TOGAF 9 Foundation and TOGAF 9 Certified.
    ArchiMate Certification, which confirms that the candidate is proficient in the ArchiMate at the Foundation or Practitioner level.
