What is Distance Learning Enterprise Architect Certification?
Distance Learning Enterprise Architect Certification is the latest offering from the Enterprise Architecture Center Of Excellence (EACOE) – the finest EA Certification available. Workshop participants join the Certification instructor in a virtual classroom, without leaving their home or office. Using the latest in web conferencing technology designed for maximum interaction, Workshop participants can access the virtual classroom remotely, from any location worldwide, and still benefit from instructor-led training. This is NOT a passive online course!
Why is EACOE Offering a Distance Learning Option?
Quite simply – demand (and the technology is now available to “almost” simulate the face-to-face classroom environment!). EACOE is responding to the need to offer Enterprise Architect Certification globally to geographically diverse and dispersed individuals and organizations around the world who may be unable to travel to a face-to-face Workshop. Self-paced training is simply not equal to Distance Learning. Live online Workshops provide the attendee with the opportunity to become a Certified Enterprise Architect from the comfort of their desktop. This Workshop option benefits the participant by eliminating travel costs as well as time away from the office. This format also better accommodates both the individual and small teams by “bringing” the Workshop to the individual or team. EACOE offers on-site live Workshops, but if the organization does not have enough individuals that can simultaneously “break away” for a week at one time, the live online Workshop is now an option.
How can I enroll in a Distance Learning Enterprise Architect Certification Workshop?
You are able to enroll in a Workshop the same way as our more traditional Workshop – at our web site www.EACOE.org.
How is Live Online Workshop delivered?
Prior to the Workshop, registered Workshop attendees will receive login details and Workshop materials.
