Next Steps


Footnotes

(*1) This certification path is valid until July 7 2014, after which only the exam paths to certification will be valid. If you take the exam at a Prometric test center and have attended an Accredited ArchiMate 2 Training Course which included  successful completion of The Open Group Practical Exercises as part of that course, you are eligible to have your certification uplifted from ArchiMate 2 Foundation to ArchiMate 2 Certified. After completing your ArchiMate 2 Foundation certification, you must contact the certification authority with a request for Level 2 certification including the name of the course you attended and the course provider. The Open Group will then confirm with your trainer that you are eligible.

(*2) In countries where English is a second language the default time allowed for the examination at a Prometric test center includes additional time.

(*3) All Accredited ArchiMate Training Courses include the examination fee in the course fee.
