ArchiMate Training Course

Duration: 1 day
Course code: SS-ARC-201


This course is for:

  • Architects
  • Analysts
  • Modelers
  • Managers

Attendees must have exposure to software development. Experience with modeling (for example UML) is beneficial.


The ArchiMate training course provides an in-depth view into ArchiMate.
ArchiMate emerged as one of the most comprehensive approaches for description of Enterprise Architectures, consisting of principles, methods and models used in the design and realization of organizational structure, business processes, information systems, and infrastructure. In this course, you will learn how to describe these aspects of architectures for enterprise and express them in ArchiMate. The course also covers best practices of modeling Enterprise Architecture and provides practical guidance on how to make the enterprise modeling more effective.


Upon completion of the ArchiMate training course, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe key elements of Enterprise Architecture
  • Use ArchiMate to capture layers of Enterprise Architecture
  • Identify and create views for enterprise models
  • Apply best practices of enterprise modeling
