All,

I wanted to know if someone managed to give Zachman Architecture exam? It seems one needs to take there courses before giving exam. Not sure if we can just buy book and give exam.

Anyone who can throw light on how to approach of getting this certification it would be REALLY helpful!

Thanking you

Pravin Kumar

It's a certification offered by John Zachman through zachman international on Zachman EA framework.

Please read the FAQ on the process of earning this certification

Our FAQ posted by Siva has all the details (thanks Siva).

But to clarify, in order to be Zachman Certified, we are requiring Architects to take the courses. It is possible for one to take the test through the ICCP without taking the courses, however that person will not be designated "Zachman Certified" unless they take the courses through Zachman International. It is the only way that we can control what people actually know and how much they truly understand.

Incidentally, there are a lot of people who think they understand the Zachman Framework, but after taking the courses, they come away with a whole new perspective and realize it is far deeper then they ever understood.

Hope that helps!

Hi Siva-

I'm glad you saw his 1-day. That is great!

Yes, we are working on Zachman Certified dates in India right now. We just have to get a few more details squared away.

Keep checking our course schedule for updates.

The scope of SCEA is narrow as it based on Java technologies. Zachman is a generic framework and has a wider application
